The collections exude elegance and integrity, with a fashion-forward vision. Diana Mahrach started working as a teenager in 1996 as a fabric consultant and fabric buyer in New York’s garment district.

Her work with fabrics inspired Ms. Mahrach to begin designing evening wear for her clients. She has always loved beautiful fashion silhouettes and high quality design, focusing primarily on high couture evening and bridal wear.
