Daphne  Mohajer va Pesaran


My last name means “Immigrant and Sons” in Persian.
No, I’m not joking—my family took it when they moved from Afghanistan to Iran. With some sons, I guess. 

I lecture in fashion design and research in The School of Fashion and Textiles at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.

I like collaborating, and am interested in what materials and relationships can emerge in communities of human and nonhuman people.

In my research and design practice at the moment I work with handmade Japanese paper and garments/products made from paper. 

My interest at the moment is in storytelling and documentation in various formats including film, drawing, text, audio, etc.
