Mariyam Nayeri : Vintage Curator, Scorpio, A Mother, Embracer of Life, Mexican, A Chef, Yogi.
Mariyam Nayeri is the founder of La Paloma Vintage and co-curator at Su'juk. Lapaloma is a carefully curated selection that embraces an aesthetic that is all at once classic, earthy and disco. Silk, pleats, sequins and linen are the salt of the collection's earth.
Mariyam's love for fashion began amongst her grandmother's pillbox hats and mother's disco dresses. Placing your best (and perfectly groomed and polished) foot forward was a lesson instilled within her from an early age. Collars were starched, pleats were perfectly creased, and details mattered.
Her approach to selecting pieces channel these lessons into timeless, classic looks and silhouettes that are always the life of the party. Further info and updates can be found at www.mariyamnayeri.com
