MANNY KHOSHBIN visiting House Of Bijan in Beverly Hills
During the course of one hour and the consumption of two cups of tea, I watched my friend, whom I’d only ever seen in dull browns and deep blues, become giddy with excitement while selecting ties of violet, lime green and tangerine. He was like the proverbial kid in a candy store, and his joy was infectious. Perhaps that’s why I returned, alone, the following week to say hello to Madame Manijeh and to Nicolas Bijan, the handsome and debonair son of the late Bijan Pakzad. It was Pakzad who, along with his friend, real estate developer Dar Mahboubi, co-founded the boutique.
