Sanaz has an extensive background in fashion with more than twenty years as a technical designer for respected labels including TSE cashmere, Catherine Malandrino, Inhabit, Trademark, and Adam Lippes. While building technical design departments for other successful brands, Sanaz was in a unique position to see what worked, what didn’t, and perhaps most importantly, what was missing from what many consider to be a saturated market: timeless pieces that create an interchangeable collection, designed with natural fibers, for women of all shapes and statures. This is OYUN.
Russell brings an aesthetic and a creative vision honed over a twenty-year career shooting fashion photography in NYC. Working primarily with fashion houses and department stores, Russell's work has been prominently featured in ads for Bloomingdale's and Calvin Klein. As partner to Sanaz, he shares her vision to bring more ease, simplicity, and affordable luxury to the world of fashion.
