Every awards season, the designs of Ali Rahimi can be found on the red carpet on Hollywood’s leading men and women. From his studio in Los Angeles, California, Rahimi creates these haute couture gowns and suits under the label Mon Atelier for celebrities and other clientele. Rahimi was trained in the classic tradition of couture and creates each piece with an immense attention to detail and fine sewing. With a catalog ranging from men’s suits and vests to women’s gowns and accessories, Rahimi custom fits each design.
This year, Rahimi’s creations were worn by Mary Hart of Entertainment Tonight and Arianna Huffington to the Academy Awards.
“I design to fit a woman’s body and choose fabrics that bring out each client’s natural beauty,” says Rahimi. “For example, for Mary Hart I created an asymmetrically draped gown that accented Mary’s shoulders and neckline. The fabric was a beautiful, spring green metallic silk organza with pink flowers scattered throughout. The colors perfectly complemented her brilliant eyes.”
