Tala Raassi is an Iranian-American Fashion Designer born in Maryland, USA and raised in Tehran, Iran. When Tala Raassi turned sixteen she attended her Sweet 16 at a friends house wearing a mini skirt. It was not long before the party was raided by the religious police and she and her friends faced the punishment of five days in jail and forty lashes. In 2000 right after the punishment, Raassi moved back to the USA where she currently lives. While shopping for her boutique in São Paulo, Brazil during fashion week, Raassi became inspired to design her own line of swimsuits, Dar Be Dar.
