Lida Nobakht was born in Iran on Aug 1977. She is now residing in Zurich / Switzerland. Lida was born and raised in a family in which arts and literature were valued most. Her mother was her first tailoring and couture teacher and this led her to continue her educations in the Technical-Vocational Art Academy of Iran and got a degree in Haute Couture. She has been working in this field since 2004. During her carrier as a fashion designer in Iran, she had to face different obstacles as suitable working environment did not exist in that sector. She was always looking for a freer and more established fashion scene to manifest her talent and abilities. She has always considered herself as a fashion scholar as she says: “I trained my eyes for a better view of all surrounds me” and this helped her to understand her surroundings and get inspiration from her everyday life. Women in Lida’s world all poses Audrey Hepburn’s elegance. Her designs are to elaborate the sense of femininity for those who like to add up a bit of lady-likeness to their style. She mixes all these with the elements of modernity, comfort and timelessness to make a new meaning for the term, “chic”. She is also inspired with the indigenous culture of her motherland Iran. Things like color of textiles, architecture and above all the colorful surroundings can be seen everywhere in Iran, but, yet her designs remain very contemporary and cosmopolitan. Lida is a dreamer. Her mind is open and expanded and she is full of energy with a broad smile on her face. She intends to expand the boundaries as she says: “the realm of fashion is where I experience limitless. There is nothing you can’t imagine or do. It makes me wonder when I see women choose a homogenized look by wearing a pair of jeans and a top when they can follow their dreams and built their own style and become special, elegant and more desirable. Lida also has worked as a custom designer for a TV series in Iran and participated in an exhibition in Vienna’s Art Week presenting her designs in an exhibition called “Hinterland”.
