Growing up in a family with an artistic background made me appreciate the aesthetics and appearance of things from a very young age. As a result, after high school I attended architecture school in Iran for four years. During that time, I was constantly following the fashion industry. My love for fashion was growing and I realized I was having a change of heart and the aspiration of being a fashion designer was developing. I moved to New York to pursue my dream of fashion and create modern/elevated streetwear with my own stories behind it.
