Laya Torkaman was born in Iran but moved to France at a very young age, where she now lives.
She pursues two careers since the mid 1990s, one in fashion and one in dance. (sufi dance)
Many of her fashion designs are influenced by traditional Persian garments.
She frequently mixes modern fabrics with fragments from old Persian outfits.
Laya Torkaman sufi dance is inspired by the mystical poetry of the classical Persian poets such as Rumi and Hafiz,
and can best be described as a meditating exercise.
She has recently performed in France, Holland, Italy and the UK.
