Talar Nina Bilemjian
Armenian from Los Angeles
I’ve been designing since I was 16
high school textile classes in London
My friends and family pushed me to start my brand Talar Nina but designing and fashion has always been part of my DNA. I’m a granddaughter to two extremely stylish grandmas. My grandparents in Amman were one of the first people to start importing high end Italian fashion labels to Amman, Jordan, so I’ve been surrounded my glamorous clothes and beautiful things since I was a baby.
I get inspiration from everything, the beautiful people around me, the cities I have lived in, my Armenian heritage to my experiences growing up around different parts of the world. I love art and architecture too, so there’s always something to do with either of those topics on my moodboard.
I have a lot of favourite designers , but to name a few .... Elie Saab, Alexander Wang, Delpozo and A.L.C !
In 5 years time I would like to have mastered a few yoga poses perfectly. Have my very own atelier for the brand, sell the line to different parts of the world and be surrounded by good energy!
Dubai is a beautiful city, full of opportunity and young energy! I couldn’t have imagined starting Talar Nina anywhere else! Dubai to me feels like the center of the universe sometimes, the city where everyone wants to be, or see.
Well we are currently finishing up our AW18 collection which is much bigger And more exotic than what we have ever done before
let’s just say we made our very first Talar Nina dress!
