Jamileh Kamran and Arkansas Fashion School — the education center founded by the couture designer in 2007 for budding clothing creators — are on the move.
A Dec. 18 visit to the elegant main space of Kamran’s longtime design studio/shop-turned-school on Kavanaugh Boulevard found no boxes piled up yet. Visitors could still seat themselves comfortably, help themselves to holiday candy-bowl offerings, enjoy the tasteful framed wall art, gaze admiringly at the beautiful burgundy-with-gold-trim outfit on the dressmaker’s mannequin, see the framed High Profile write-up of Kamran’s daughter’s featured wedding.
But they could also peruse built-in shelves full of oo-la-la retail fashion accessories, handbags and necklaces and earrings and such, that had been marked down to enticing clearance prices. They could look to the back of the showroom and see shelves of rolled fabric still on display, but behind plastic-wrapped rolls of additional fabric, ready for transportation.
