Iran women were more like most woman in other countries today. Free to wear whatever the wanted, from swimsuit , mini dresses, could freely communicate with men and most importantly they could get an education. So was a normal country then 1979 the Islamic revolution happened and changed almost everything.
At Clare K we are not gonna talk about the politics but we want to share how different this country was.

In December 1969, 10 years before the Islamic Revolution, the fashion photographer Henry Clarke took a series of photos in Iran, from Shiraz to Isfahan and Tehran. Featuring models Marisa Berenson, Lauren Hutton and Cynthia Korman with the amazing colors and beautiful architecture of iranian mosques. History and unique landscape made the series a unique moment of fashion. The charming girls, the colors and the artistic talent of Clarke made the photos extremely poetic and historical. Iran before the Islamic Revolution of 1979 was quite a different country from the one we see today. It was secular, Western-oriented and allowed a certain amount of cultural freedom.
