Sasha Nassar is a Paris-based womenswear line designed by Sasha Nassar since 2016.
Influenced by history, cities and photography, Sasha Nassar’s collections are a mix of traditional elements and modern style. Nassar studied at the prestigious Instituto Marangoni in Milan, London and Paris, and is the 2013 winner of the “Graduate Fashion Week” international show in London.
In September 2013 she presented her capsule collection SS14 designed for the Danish label "Muuse", during London and Paris fashion week. It was sold in-store and online.
Sasha developed her design aesthetic at Instituto Marangoni MA womenswear design course. There, she created a collection inspired by the Palestinian embroidery. The collection was exhibited at "Tzuri Guetta" atelier in Paris, at the Palestinian Museum and will was presented at "TedX Science Po" event in February.
Her SS17 collection is both inspired and lives through a delicate combination of the differences of her hometown of Jaffa and her daily life in Paris. Jaffa is a Mediterranean port city, unique because of its mixed population and geography - antique next to modern. It’s a city that challenges the concept of beauty; although it is rugged, it captures the mind and imagination of everyone who visits. Next to her childhood home by the old port of Jaffa, she watched how thousands of people define who they are through what they wear. Choosing to be unique or ordinary. She finds the textiles fascinating for having a life of their own.
