Kiana Anvaripour is the in business of creating sex appeal. The Lake Oswego native turned Los Angeles fashion designer has created a line of shapewear products for women with her company ResultWear by dMondaine.

Although the patent is pending, the 31-year-old entrepreneur has found a niche couture market for the busts, butts, hips and guts of women everywhere.

ResultWear’s luxury collection of bras, skirts and bodysuits are designed to lift and shape problem areas, enhance a woman’s best assets and create an hourglass silhouette.”

My whole ethos has always been executing the timeless silhouette — a Valentino, if you will — and I’ve always been inspired by old Hollywood glamour,” she said. “I think there is a real renaissance happening right now with curves. That’s never really gone out of style as far as I’m concerned.”Anvaripour founded the California-based company in 2010 and launched the collection in stores in August 2011. Anvaripour’s sister, Roxy, also works for the company.

Their parents, Neptune and Hank Anvaripour, reside in Lake Oswego. Anvaripour said she was interested in fashion at a young age.She designed everything — including her prom dresses — and took art classes at Portland Community College while in high school.

She studied fashion design at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles and upon graduating moved to London where she worked for various high end fashion and intimates designers.”

I wanted to work in high fashion and couture, so I basically packed my bag and left,” she said.While in London she worked at Paris Fashion Week and extravagant runways. She also learned the backside of the business, including how to market a product and work in public relations.

“I decided, ‘I’m about to turn 30, if I’m going to do it, it’s now or never,’” she said. “I started my own dress line and within that line came ResultWear.”

The dress brand, dMondaine, featured dresses that were sleek and form fitting. Anvaripour developed the ResultWear pieces as a styling tool — used for both fashion and function — to give women “a fabulous figure.”

The unique shapewear pieces struck a cord with models and other designers, which encouraged Anvaripour to further the line and seek out a patent design.Today, her collection features pieces like the Marilyn, Ava, Ginger, Stella, Grace and Audrey, which come strapless, in thongs, boys shorts, bras, pencil skirts and bodysuit varieties.

“The Marilyn has all the bells and whistles,” she said. “It’s the first piece that I came out with. It has the wrap around the body and couture details inside. It has no wire but gives you fantastic cleavage and has a zipper for easy dressing.”

Each piece can be worn underneath sheer clothing, dresses, pencil skirts or even with pants and blouses. Pieces can be ordered online at resultwear.com or in intimates and clothing boutiques and luxury department stores.

Locally, ResultWear can be purchased at Spin Boutique in Lake Oswego and Oh Baby Lingerie in Portland. Despite the recent popularity of brands like Spanx, Anvaripour’s new line has met much acclaim and has been featured on E! Television, in Italian “Vogue,” “Shape” magazine, “Marie Claire” and the “New York Times” Samurai Shopper blog.”

This product puts an edgy stamp on shapewear and it’s pretty enough to show off — you can keep the lights on,” she said. “I think with our product you can be getting ready, putting your makeup on and feel sexy about yourself.”

This is more about empowerment for yourself — when you feel good about yourself, it resonates and that’s true beauty. That’s really what I wanted to design for women.”
