Samira Tremiño is a talented designer and creative director living in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Born in the south of Spain, half-Iranian Samira grew up outside of Hamburg, Germany and in England.
She studied fashion in London and then interned at Luella Bartley and Mulberry where, despite working with the ready to wear team she always found herself snooping on the bag-design department. After falling in love with what they were doing Stuart Vevers offered her a job with the accessories team at Mulberry and Samira’s long handbag-related journey began.
With an already impressive career evolving, Samira moved to NYC to design at Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra, the Line, and Hayward and Hopper Goods, where she now designs their entire range. Finding Inspiration from as many abstract places as possible, Samira always strives to discover the most essential components of a brand’s story and thread them together via poetic tessellation and metaphorical synergy. Whether a building, a film, a song, or a chair, if it speaks the brand’s language and exudes its essence, it’s considered for reference in the design.
In her spare time, Samira refines her pottery skills while conjuring up new ways to open her third eye through mind-bending jungle adventures or stoic self-study via the medium of silence. Samira is a true adventurer, her talent in uniting the disparate and diverse to create such unique and elegant objects is always an inspiration.
