Almost twenty years ago started Onsea and Eghtessadi their fashion empire with a T-shirtcollectie. The love for fashion got the twelve-year-old Azar so with the spoon. In the Antwerp fashion museum, he followed a course in fashion design, where he and a stikmachine learned to work, and his passion for fashion further uitdiepte.

The first collection was Azar-T baptized and is modest in size: one sweatshirt and one T-shirt in four different colors, in limited edition. A conscious choice, says Inge: “We teach him to seriously and remember that he is with our background is a huge advantage.’ Azar dreaming already of a career in fashion. The collection is thus more than an experiment for the young designer.

You can use the Azar-T collection online.
