Born and raised in Kuwait, Iraqi British designer Zaid Affas immigrated to London at the age of ten. He graduated with a degree in Menswear Fashion from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. Following positions directing the aesthetics of international labels that include Ports1961 and Ralph Lauren, the Los Angeles based designer launched his eponymous brand in 2014. Affas was awarded the International Woolmark Prize USA in 2017 and has been a CFDA member since 2018.

Having lived in cities around the globe, Kuwait, London, New York, Los Angeles, Milan and Xiamen China, his work is a convergent mix of polarities; a dialogue between natural, organic shapes and crisp, urban engineering. Silhouettes are presented in a conceptual format that breaks ties with the traditional and explores the transformative nature of intricate construction.

ZAID AFFAS practices an approach to design that is founded on true luxury of precise tailoring, demi-couture processes, architectural forms, and innovative luxury materials. Through a rigorous editing process, every detail is developed to answer the needs of women today.

Inspired by refined textiles and the inherent beauty of the woman who wears them, ZAID AFFAS is dedicated in redefining the image of true modern luxury through timeless design.

ZAID AFFAS has been carried in renowned retailers and built a loyal following of private clients globally.
