Heirlooms in the Making
How can what we wear stand the test of time?
When it comes to clothing, quality and craftsmanship come first for ARLUM founder Amanda Manashi.
Earning a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in San Francisco, California, Amanda’s education started in a city of modernity where the technical and digital aspects of fashion were taught in the scheme of the American market. She then further developed her skills at the historical institution that bred creative directors including Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, and Karl Lagerfeld, and received a Master’s in Fashion Design at the Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne in Paris, France.
Inspired by this blend of modern elements and timeless styles, Amanda spent years honing her technical and creative draping skills with well-respected design houses including Marchesa and Isabel Marant.
Amanda has now brought her skills to market, having launched her premiere line of inherently feminine yet effortless pieces for women in US sizes 10 to 20. The considerately designed and artfully tailored silhouettes will become treasured heirlooms for the wearer for years to come.
ARLUM is thoughtfully designed and produced in small batches in California.
