Launched in 2004, History Clothing represents renaissance style and quality for the contemporary sportswear market. The designs are intricate and mysterious. The garments have been carefully designed for function as well as fashion.
Babak Vasoughi was born in Tehran on July 14, 1974 as the oldest of two children. At the young age of eleven he was sent to Germany where he grew up. In 1991 he came to the US with aspirations of being in fashion. He started by working in high end retail stores and eventually traveled to Milan, Italy for modeling to learn the inside of the fashion industry. Through his travels he learned and gained the knowledge that he needed to pursue his dream of becoming a designer.
In 2003, inspired by his favorite designer, Alexander McQueen, he started his own line B. Vosoughi, where some high-end stores and celebrities were his clients. Such celebrities as Lisa Marie Presley, Bobby Valentine and Shavo Odadjian (System of a Down).
In 2004, to be able to extend his line internationally he started a partnership with Jerry Salem who has helped build up numerous brands in his career. By the end of 2004 they launched History Clothing which is now in stores nationwide a well as in Canada and Australia.
In 2006 a new partnership with the Brand House will take the line internationally and to a higher level. Babak's vision is to have a full line by 2007.
When we first saw the pieces from History Clothing, we instantly thought of Alex. We could see her wearing this shirt with a pair of boot-cut jeans and accessorized with a choker, itís the perfect fit for her look while working at the Bait Shop. This isnít just a line for the girls however, History Clothing has pieces for the guys as well, and we think that Volchok would definitely be a fan as well.
Youíll find that the pieces are high quality and truly one of a kind, as the crest on the shirt we have pictured below is actually the Babak/Vosoughi family crest. So if youíre looking to add a little bit of edge to your wardrobe, definitely check out this line!
