Mikael Aghal

Manhattan-raised designer Michael Hakimi wields his creative talent as the designer and director of the stylish, new  evening wear collection, Mikael Aghal. In January 2008, Michael launched Mikael Aghal in the U.S.

Chic, sultry and young, Mikael Aghal brings couture-inspired gowns to real life through the creation of the new brand. The line combines fine Italian silks, such as soft chiffons and charmeuse, silk taffeta, and jacquards, with feminine, structured cuts for the worldly, modern glam girl.

Three years ago, Michael conceptualized introducing a new evening wear line that surpassed in style and fit at an unmatchable price point. Michael spent time studying with his uncle at his design shop in Brazil, and traveled the globe to learn how to source the finest fabrics possible and cultivated a diverse sense of style.

With a mother who ran a couture dress business, Michael has long been surrounded by the elements of fashion and design. Michael says, “My mother taught me everything I know about dresses-making and design. She is always challenging me and asking me to think about my designs in a new, fresh way.”
