After six years of living in Australia, furthering her academic studies and working in her field of study, as well as, working part time in the field of fashion and styling. she gained valuable experiences in both fields and developed the confidence to pursue her passion. She has always had an eye for details and it was through leveraging this innate personality trait that made her to choose science in the first place where micro details are as important as big pictures. In 2015 she returned to Tehran with a broadened horizon and decided to pursue a career in line with her passion for art. Hence, she completed an official course in fashion design and throughout this academic path, she also participated in collection designing workshops, hosted by Milan haute future fashion academy in Tehran, which gave her the skills to communicate her visions through this field. A field and a form of art, which would let her ideas to come into beings and be sensed and experienced by people as wearable pieces, sculptural pieces, articulating science in fusion with art. Since 2017 saaku has been designing and crafting high quality and artistic wearable pieces, for its art lover clients, in the most possibly sustainable, and transparent manners, maintaining respect and awareness for the environment, earth and all the living beings on it.

STATEMENT OF ART:
Fashion design for me is a form of art, through which my ideas can come into beings and be sensed and experienced by people as wearable pieces, sculptural pieces, while articulating science infused with art. As a designer in my designs, I am always trying to reach the heights of creativity and innovation with references to my knowledge from what I have learnt in life, my background studies, my birth country's rich history and with bright visions for the future. This is done in line with the world’s highest standards in both fields of textile and fashion design, while keeping my knowledge of the know hows always up to date, learning from and being inspired by the leaders and pioneers of the industry, with the hope to also bring new visions for the growth of the industry and making my own mark in its history.
Growing up in a family which taught me how to always have a moral attitude towards the nature and the environment I live in, has been a privilege that has equipped me with such mentality to also create saaku in the same way and evolve it by the same ethical codes. In simple words these codes for me are there, to always live in a more intelligent way to guarantee efficiency in every aspect of my life and work, by minimizing any irreversible damage to any environments and beings that are affected by me and my works.
