ABOUT THE DESIGNER
SAHAR ZOHAIR - HOW IT ALL STARTED
Vasiliki Atelier founded, Sahar Zohair, is a designer who transformed a dream into a high-end contemporary womenswear brand. The Vasiliki Atelier label was created for the global woman, always preserving an edge of Sahar's heritage.
As a self-taught designer, Sahar began constructing garments at the age of 11 in the Middle East. After a childhood spent traveling with her mother to local fabric markets, forming a close relationship with the local tailor, Sahar became exceptionally comfortable with garments design and construction.
As her travels brought her across countries and continents, what began as a lifelong passion soon evolved into a business. Through her international travel, Sahar developed connections with various manufacturers and artisans with exquisite crafts, which led to partnerships and global influences in her collection.
While Sahar’s style has evolved into something more global, she never lost her deepest inspiration - her heritage, traditions, and culture. These inspirations remain, expressed through the striking embroidery, elegant hand-woven fabric, printing techniques, and unique silhouettes of her designs. The brand's origin story is what makes it both modern and timeless, trendy and international.
Vasiliki believes in being a part of a brighter future. As a brand, we maintain transparency and sustainability within every possible practice, from conception to production. Vasiliki creates small, high-quality, sustainable collections to minimize our environmental impact. We work with sustainable fabric suppliers and manufacturers, opting for natural, durable fibers such as cotton and linen whenever possible.
