Who doesn't have a fond memory of driving past Rodeo drive and seeing his bright yellow classic car parked in front of his store every day? Him sometime coming out and greeting and speaking to tourists.

He did so much for the Persian community in L.A always making sure people had pride in both their Persian roots and American roots and forgetting neither. Always speaking fondly of the Shah era where Iran was a pioneer country in freedom and fashion (unlike the repressed Islamic situation the country faces today) may this succesful, kind man make a full recovery. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Bijan is a icon in the world of fashon. I am very proud of him. he brought lots of pride for Persian people. when I heard the news today about his death, I cried very badly. I have just seen him once when he was inside his boutique 3 years ago when I moved to LA. That was my first time to see his store. I immediately open his store's door to go and see inside of his store. I was so exited to see him. he was staying there with a magazine in his hand. suddenly a beautiful girl came to me and asked me if I have any appointment with him? and I was like, Ohhhhh Nooo, and she said you need to have appointment to get to this store. Any way that was the only time that I saw Bijan. Although I never talked to him and he doesn't know me, but tonight when I heard the news. I cried alot. still I am crying. Now I feel much better because I heard he is still alive but in critical condition. I am going to pry for him all night long tonight. He is pride of Persian society and I want him to live long to bring more pride for Iranian people. Bijan Jan, stay strong. We pray for you. Please get well soon.

The clothes his store sells are obviously worth what his customers pay for them. He is a brilliant designer and businessman and a patriotic American Persian businessman. May he get well and support to his family and friends.
