Arefeh Mansouri Arefeh Mansouri was born in Iran, and immigrated to Canada at the age of 16, where she pursued Fashion Studies at Montreal’s LaSalle College. Mansouri’s work is mainly representative of high couture fashion, and she is best known for her range of unique, avant-garde wedding gowns and evening wear, which have been featured on the runways at New York Fashion Week. Mansouri does not limit herself to a signature style, however her designs include a range of sophisticated prêt-à-porter pieces, featuring elegant lines, muted colors and soft draping, vastly different yet as equally striking as her couture line. In recent years, Mansouri has expanded her oeuvre into costume design, heading wardrobe design for a number of films and TV movies. She is also a member of The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and of the Costume Designers Guild.
