Malaysians will not rest on keeping their eyes locked on the country's former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, who by now we should refer to as an expert when it comes to luxury handbags, being in the public eye sporting big brand names to pair with her wrist candy pick of the day.
After news broke out on a recent raid following an investigation into 1MDB, the Federal Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Amar Singh confirmed "There were also 567 handbags, and the police have checked 273 bags so far estimated to cost a total of RM51.3 million from 37 brands including luxury names such as Hermes, Chanel and Bijan."
I'm sure you're well aware of Hermes and Chanel but Bijan? It's not a common one to spot around town, but it's one of the world's most expensive fashion house to the elite. Read on for 6 things you need to know about Bijan, a brand that helped define America's 1980s power dressing.
2. NICOLAS BIJAN PAKZAD
In 2011, Bijan Pakzad passed away due to a stroke and his son, Nicolas Bijan Pakzad, 26, has since taken charge as an active role in the House of Bijan, serving as the Vice President, working closely with co-founder Mr. Dar Mahboubi and Ms. Manijeh Messa to pursue his father’s fashion legacy.
Aside from his passion and extensive knowledge of the brand, Nicolas also inherited his late father’s good looks and charm. He’s the current face of the brand, making a recent appearance in the brand’s ad campaign.
