In 1969 Henry Clarke, a fashion photographer, went to Iran to take a collection of pictures for Vogue. He photographed his models in mosques and palaces in Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz and Persepolis. The pictures were published in Vogue on December 1969.
This issue of Vogue also includes a picture of Queen Farah Diba in a dress inspired by Baluch tradition of “Souzandoozi”, an advertisement for Iran Air promoting its flight service from London to Tehran, and some pictures of Vida Zahedi’s chic Tehran store “Number One Avenue Sanieddoleh” on Vogue’s regular Boutique page.
