I had the opportunity to meet Sahar during her private exhibition, just outside of Chicago, several years ago. It was the first time we were collaborating and meeting, and she was delightful and kind. Sahar is undoubtedly a rising talent out of the greater Chicago area. She is gifted with a discerning eye, desire to help her clientele achieve their vision, and works with a sense of integrity that has helped establish her as a designer.
Recently, I spoke with Sahar by phone to discuss several things — focusing on her growth as a designer and the new projects she’s working on. Since that in-person meeting several years ago, Sahar has established two distinct brands – Sahar Dada, a modern womenswear line of timeless and versatile silhouettes, and Ari and Oak, a custom, formal, bridal line, she’s launched with her talented mother and business partner.
“The Sahar Dada woman is experimental, seeks a great quality product, and is ageless. Ten years from now, she should be able to find each piece in the same condition as the day she brought it home.”
Just a few short weeks from now, Sahar’s fall and holiday collection will be available. It’s reflective of her journey as a maturing designer – made up of edgier cuts, offers a “different dimension” than her previous collections, and is a darker color palette. Her beautifully crafted blouses, cocktail dresses, and embellished skirts would be a perfect complement to that moto jacket. Swoon.
Sahar started her first collection in 2010 with a focus on eastern attire. In 2013, she began a line of modern and western apparel for women. While based in Chicago, IL, Sahar has a large following in Dubai, UAE, and designs products for an international audience. In only a few short years, Sahar has built a client base to include owners of recognizable sports teams, philanthropists, fashion bloggers, and brides and bridal parties who have been featured in Grace Ormonde.
Success for Sahar means consistency, longevity, versatility, and most importantly, the desire to make pieces tailored to her clients vision.
Be sure to add her to your digital rolodex of fashion house contacts.
