Shirin Askari is a Dallas based designer whose love for designing compelled her to create ASKARI. She learned how to sew from her mother at an early age and made her first dress at the age of 7. Over the years, her hobby of making her own clothing turned into a career path. Shortly after graduating with a fashion design degree, Shirin was invited to be on the hit tv show Project Runway.
After the show she moved to NYC to launch her line. Since then she has shown at New York Fashion Week in Lincoln Center with audience including Mary Kate Olsen, Debra Messing and Kristen Chenoweth. Her designs have also taken her to Milan for fashion week in addition to being awarded Fashion Group International’s “Rising Star in Fashion” Award.
The ASKARI collection embraces effortless silhouettes, mixed with bright colors and artistic prints uniquely appropriate for every occasion. ASKARI can be found in over 150 speciality boutiques and online.
