Torn between fashion design and interior design, Marina Qureshi began her fashion journey at age 15, and enrolled at ESMOD at age 1 7. Synonymous with elegant evening wear and romantic formal gowns, Qureshi’s namesake label has carved a very cozy niche in a market saturated with “trendy”
fashions that live temporarily. Qureshi’s timeless designs are a sophisticated marriage of classic and contemporary, romance and edginess. Here, Qureshi tells /N Magazine about her journey from tomboy to sequins, and everything in between.
THE COLLECTION TAKES INSPIRATION FROM BROKEN NATURE NOT ONLY IN DEFORMED PATTERNS, BUT ALSO IN THE STRONG AND BOLD COLOR PALETTE.
