As a U.A.E-raised-Persian, Ava has constantly been exposed to Middle-Eastern culture, architecture and art, an environment that has fuelled the inspiration behind her designs. Leaving high school in Dubai and starting a new chapter at Boston University, Ava was determined to pursue a career in Marketing and Business Administration. However, her enrolment at the School of Fashion and Design in Boston led her on a different path.

Ava started her line, Hâshé, at the age of 19. In 2012, Sponsored by Moët & Chandon, the designer showcased her first clothing collection in Boston. Same year she was awarded “The Best Upcoming Fashion Designer in New England”.
