After graduating from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in downtown L.A., Mizani gained experience and knowledge working with other West Coast designers and procured her skills to execute her own vision. Donna Mizani debuted her first Ready-to-Wear Collection in 2009 with a unique and distinctive design esthetic. Through merging sensual Ready-To-Wear pieces with new-aged sophistication, Mizani established a supremely feminine and modern sensibility.
Mizani recognized her passion for design as a child. From a young age, Mizani was redesigning the clothes in her closet, sewing and creating all-new, trend-setting looks. “I have always found the female form to be remarkably beautiful, ever since taking my first life drawing class as a teenager. I was drawn to fashion design as it is my passion to create unique garments that enhance and flatter the female physique,” explains Mizani.
Since the first collection, Mizani has been dedicated to making clothes that are crafted beautifully, both inside and out. Enlisting her sister to help run the business, the two put their focus on quality craftsmanship. 100% of the Donna Mizani Collection is manufactured in downtown L.A.’s Garment District.
Mizani is influenced by many sources including her urban lifestyle, travels to Europe, Asia, India and Latin America, and her close-knit family. Consistency is key for Mizani. The most important element to her collection is the ability to gain her clients trust by providing them with high-quality, unique products.
