Draft No. 1: Well, hey, you’ve got to start somewhere.
Draft No. 4: You call that a draft?
Draft No. 11: Moving on to 12.
Draft No. 17: Aha! Now that’s the kind of Jasmin Shokrian debut diffusion line we’re talking about.
From notebooks stuffed with trial-and-error sketches conjured for her stylish lady friends’ whims comes the year-round wearalls from the darling of L.A.’s design scene.
Composed of 30 seasonless silhouettes, Shokrian’s standout range revolves around architectural variations on the basic slip dress — in cool silk to slinky jersey, muted to bold, with clever details (plunging backs, needle-thin straps, bubble hems) to set each apart.
Pair with the versatile tops, pants, and jumpsuits that follow suit or experiment with Shokrian’s signature line of budget-busting belts and blazers.
Hey, brilliance requires several takes.
