SHAPING HOUSTON: AMIR TAGHI
DESIGNING HIS WAY INTO THE FABRIC OF HOUSTON
18 YEAR-OLD HOUSTON FASHION DESIGNER
Amir Taghi, 18, was raised in Houston, Texas, and grew up influenced by the grace and charm of southern women around him juxtaposed with the opulence of the Persian culture. From an early age, he was surrounded by high fashion. Taghi developed his sense of style while working at his Grandfather’s boutique.
Taghi presented his first collection at the age of fifteen. Soon after, he had a public showing at a world renowned boutique, Tootsies. Upon his third collection in 2013, Taghi interned at Oscar de la Renta in New York. During the Fall of 2013, Taghi was asked to show his Spring Summer 2014 Collection at Fashion Houston. Taghi enrolled at Central Saint Martins University of Art and Design in London during the summer of 2014. After launching the collection in 2012, Taghi is presenting his Spring Summer 2015 Collection at New York Fashion Week.
At Cadillac, we celebrate those whose passion and vision have reshaped our city, our lives and our culture.
