Alborzian was born in Tehran, Iran to an English mother and Iranian father. In late 1978, Alborzian’s parents sent him away to an English boarding school in response to the ever-increasing anti-Shah protests dominating the country.

Alborzian began work as a fashion model on the runways of Paris in 1986. Along with Gaultier, he worked for other designers such as Dior and YSL. He did not achieve wider fame for his work until he landed a three-season campaign for Guess jeans in 1988. This work earned him a great deal of attention, including that of Madonna who handpicked him to be her love interest in the music video for her song "Express Yourself." He appeared in the 1997 music video for Elton John's "Something About the Way You Look Tonight", also starring Kate Moss. In 1998, he ended his career in fashion after he joined fellow models Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, and Kate Moss in visiting Nelson Mandela in South Africa for a charity event to benefit the Mandela Fund.
