Through a partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America x LIFEWTR, Ghazaleh debuted her Spring/Summer 2018>PERRENIAL HEIRLOOMS capsule collection at Pier 59 Studios during New York Fashion Week driven by concepts of racial, cultural, and environmental coexistence from the perspective of her Iranian heritage, and the nomadic Qashqa’i muse who emerged from it to step beyond marked borders to experience a world without one.

Her other works have been exhibited at locations such as the City Hall of Paris,France, BASE Milano in Italy during FuoriSalone Milan Design Week, the Lincoln Center in New York, and the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. She has also appeared in such publications as Vogue, Vanity Fair, W Magazine, New York Times blog, WWD, The Sartorialist and Vogue Knitting.

In 2008 she was also the recipient of a Sister-Cities International exchange scholarship to study couture tailoring, draping, and pattern-drafting techniques at L’École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne in Paris, France.

Now after more than 10 years of her own university-level design education, as a part-time college professor, Ghazaleh is devoted to mentoring and guiding her students towards the creative self-empowerment of uncovering their potential, cultivating their individual voices as designers, and paving their own authentic paths that can lead them towards making a positive impact not only on their own lives, but on the world.
