Fashion Designer in Ottawa's Byward Market

Hailing from Iran, a country with a rich artisan and craftsmanship heritage, Farah began to learn dressmaking at an early age. Serendipitously, political tensions in Iran led her to Rome, Italy, where she was able to develop her passion, and it was there that she opened her first dress shop. Then, upon fatefully moving to Ottawa in 1994 with her family, she found a new home for her boutique. Barely settled into Ottawa, Farah’s studio was featured in Secret Ottawa: The Unique Guidebook to Ottawa's Hidden Sights, Sounds, and Tastes, and a loyal, discerning clientele has gradually built up since.

All Farah Studio pieces are thoughtfully designed, cut, and sewn in Ottawa using high-quality textiles to create enduring styles that act as cornerstones of today’s ageless style-savvy woman’s closet. Made to be practical and elegant, the collection is versatile enough to let the wearer's personal style bring the pieces to life. If you’ve always had something specific in mind and would like to create a one-of-a-kind classic to cherish forever, Farah can also work with you to create a unique custom-designed haute-couture piece. 

The Farah Studio boutique and custom-design atelier is located at 483 Sussex Drive, between York and Clarence. Get in touch with us on (613) 719-7761 or at to book an appointment for any custom-design inquiries.
