Ancient Iran: Prehistoric Fashion Center?

Arcaheologists discovered 5000-year-old stylish clothings, jewelry, makeup and textiles in a dig in Burnt City, Iran.

Archaeologists there suspect that a state-of-the-art textile industry thrived in ancient Iran, allowing men and women to wear trend-setting, colorful, designed pieces, which may have influenced the clothing styles of other regions.

"An eye liner bowl, a comb, a makeup box, a marble device for applying eye liner, along with some jewelry, were dug out from the grave of an 18-year-old wealthy woman," said Mansour Sajjadi, who continues to lead the archaeological team at the site.

He added, "They also used to wear gem necklaces and bracelets, all considered chic masterpieces 5,000 years ago."
