Unit­ed Fash­ion event: Berlin 2018

Sabah Ashiq start­ed Ashiq Stu­dio in 2016. But the sto­ry behind her brand began much ear­li­er than that. When she was 8 years old her father showed her the plans to their first house. She remem­bers being fas­ci­nat­ed by the fact that a col­lec­tion of lines on paper could be trans­lat­ed into a phys­i­cal space. That’s when her pas­sion for draw­ing began. Grow­ing up in the heart of Brus­sels, min­utes away from the Grand Place, she would sit and sketch the build­ings for hours, hop­ing to record the beau­ty she saw around her through draw­ing.
Fast for­ward more than two decades and Sabah has built a suc­cess­ful career as an Archi­tect. She still main­tains the same appre­ci­a­tion for the beau­ty of archi­tec­ture and through Ashiq Stu­dio, she looks to bring the beau­ty she sees in archi­tec­ture into people’s every­day lives.
Her leather archi­tec­ture is char­ac­ter­ized by min­i­mal­ist design where curves and straight lines come togeth­er seam­less­ly on imper­fect raw leather. The con­trast between the pre­ci­sion of the lines and the uneven tex­ture of the leather makes each piece unique.
