Shadi Askari-Farhat launched her premier collection, Tbags Los Angeles, in 2001. Early in its evolution, the label of intricately-sewn handbags was encouraged to expand into a full collection of ready-to-wear. Quickly, it won a loyal following and gained international recognition from the fashion press.


Over the years, Shadi has evolved as a person, designer, and now a mother of two beautiful little girls. Thanks to the dedicated following and support of retailers across the globe, Shadi is excited to announce the beginning of her next chapter – MISA. A combination of her daughters’ names, Milla and Sayeh, the label will embody the natural evolvement of the designer with an elevated femininity and sophistication.
