Masum karimi 

I took my first steps in fashion as a simple hobby. I liked to make my own clothes and those of my sisters. After finishing my education as a teacher, I decided to study fashion at the design school of Tehran where the Parisian fashion style was taught. 
It was there that I started to experiment with patterns to create garments with the elegance of European fashion, but inspired by elements that represent my native Middle East. 

In the 90’s I moved to Madrid and there I decided to make my passion my profession, I studied industrial pattern making and opened my own haute couture workshop 24 years ago. 
Over the years I have worked with nationally renowned designers to create haute couture garments and scenic costumes.

Together with my daughter we run the brand that takes my name, where she brings her creativity and I bring my experience to create quality garments and unique pieces.
