about this item

The inspiring true story of how courage, a dream, and some needle and thread can change a life forever.

Since she was young, Tala Raassi knew her fate lay in fashion. But growing up in her beloved homeland of Iran, a woman can be punished for exposing her hair in public, let alone wearing the newest trends. Despite strict regulations, Tala developed a keen sense of style in backroom cafes and secret parties. She never imagined her behavior would land her in prison or bring the cruel sting of a whip for the crime of wearing a mini-skirt.

Tala's 40 lashes didn't keep her down - they fanned the flames of individuality and inspired her to embrace a new freedom in the United States. As she developed her own clothing label, her exploration into the creative, cutthroat community of Western fashion opened her eyes to the ups and downs of hard work, hard decisions, and hard truths.

Fashion Is Freedom takes us on a journey that crosses the globe, from Colombia to Miss Universe, and inspires women everywhere to be fearless.
