    The 25th Centenary of the founding of the Persian Empire was celebrated in a unique way in London on Wednesday night (September 15).

    International furriers, Renee and Bruno Stern, designed and manufactured a collection of furs inspired by early Persian miniatures and costumes.

    SYNOPSIS: Furs fashioned and created especially to mark the 25th Centenary of the founding of the Persian Empire went on show in London today. The show of latest fur fashions was held at the residence of the Iranian Ambassador to London, Mr. Amir Khosrow Afshar and Madame Afshar. One of the first garment in the display was this dark ranch mink tabard trimmed with Canadian sable. The fur was worn over a short, white shelitah -- an Iranian skirt -- with embroidered boots and cap. The collection of furs on show was designed and manufactured by international furriers, Renee and Bruno Stern.

    A white mink tabard, trimmed with Canadian sable and worn over a red shelitah. Again, the embroidered boots and cap.
