MISA embodies our late founder Shadi Askari-Farhat's romantic heart, bohemian spirit and wanderlust eye. In 2016, Shadi launched MISA, which is a combination of her daughters’ names. Born in Los Angeles with an eye to the world, MISA is deeply inspired by global travel, art and design. Our feminine silhouettes are brought to life through airy fabrics, romantic prints, bold color combinations and unique detailing. Guided by our core principle of effortless femininity, we create many-moment designs that make you feel both beautiful and confident. From woven dresses and separates to knitwear and thoughtful accents, we create pieces that take you from — day to evening, week to weekend, home to travels away.  All of our pieces are handmade in Los Angeles by our team of designers, pattern-makers and sewists, most of whom have worked with us from the beginning. Many loving hands touch each garment, some with over 50 steps, bringing to life a collection that is equal parts effortless and chic.
