“I look at every aspect of your life, whether it is personal or business, to design an individual style that’s right for you.” Jamileh Kamran
For over 40 years Jamileh Kamran, owner of Jamileh Kamran Designs, has dedicated her career to fashion and along the way has not only made a name for herself locally, but also nationwide. Kamran’s philosophy “you cannot find two persons alike” is evident in her approach to each design.
Kamran’s impressive lists of clients include attorneys, judges, business owners and politicians. “These groups need more professional outfits which will be an investment toward their careers,” notes Kamran. It can take a minimum of three weeks for clients to receive their final pieces, because, as Kamran acknowledges, “you will never find my creations being mass produced.”
Ms. Vann Ackers of Little Rock, who has been a loyal client and close friend for over four years, cannot sing Kamran’s praises enough.
“Four years ago I came home from a trip to Paris and came to Jamileh to do alterations on a couture dress only to discover Paris was in my back yard,” said Ms. Ackers. “It does not matter if it is formal or informal, dresses or pants; Jamileh’s clothes are always perfect for what I need.”
Ackers contributes Kamran’s success due to her hands on approach. “Jamileh personally selects all the fabrics in her store, consults with her client every step of the way, and is hands-on in the in the design process,” says Ackers. “Her clothes are one of kind and just absolutely beautiful.”
Ms. Kamran, who was born in Iran, knew she would always be involved in fashion. ”I have always loved fashion, even at six years old I was cutting fabric out for my dolls. I was born with the passion for color and design, so the rest just naturally followed.” By age 13, Kamran began taking courses on fabric and design. “I took courses, but more than anything it was a combination of practice and passion that fueled my desire to succeed in fashion design,” says Kamran.
In August of 1978, Kamran moved to the United States and started practicing fashion and creating wardrobe for the most propionate ladies in Arkansas.
Kamran met Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton at a local runway show where Kamran was showcasing her designs and Clinton, who at the time was the First Lady of Arkansas, was the MC of the show. “Hillary was one of my very first clients,” says Kamran.
Kamran designed for Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Secretary of state, throughout the years when she was the first lady of Arkansas and also during the presidential inauguration of 1992-1993.
Founded in 2007, the Jamileh Kamran Arkansas Fashion School is like no other fashion design program in the United States! It is a unique way to pursue your dreams of becoming a Fashion Designer.
The Fashion Study program offers 9 courses that will take the student through all aspects of planning and creating timeless fashions. Learning the art of fashion design and construction from Jamileh Kamran means that students will be able to accomplish their dreams in fashion, construction, tailoring, and sewing! Each course lasts 8 weeks with students attending class once a week for 4 hours. Upon completion of the 9 courses, graduates will receive a diploma and be able to create their own lines, open their own businesses, or work for other designers.
