MARJAN MALAKPOUR is highly regarded as one of the most sought after and influential stylists and costume designers in the industry, with a celebrity client roster ranging from Cher to Demi Lovato and The Dixie Chicks to Garbage. Following a move from San Francisco to Los Angeles, Marjan immersed herself in the city’s rich culture of music and entertainment, which inspired her to delve into the fashion industry. Throughout the past two decades, her creative vision has been integral to countless magazine covers, music videos, world tours and ad campaigns. Her work has been featured in L’Uomo Vogue, L’Official Homme, Elle, GQ, Interview and other leading fashion publications. Marjan has worked with musicians, styling and designing tours for artists such as The Strokes, Pink, David Bowie and The Killers and has been the creative force behind ad campaigns for brands including Gap, Levis, Diesel, Chrome Hearts and most recently the Marc Jacobs Campaign with Cher. In 2009 Marjan launched, NewbarK, a luxury fashion accessory line with her sister Maryam. The brand was founded with the philosophy of “simple and chic” elegance – which is true to Marjan’s personal aesthetic. In 2016 NewbarK was nominated as one of ten finalists for the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund. “I strive to create looks that are iconic,” she says. “So when looking back ten years from now, they are still in style.”
Based in Southern California, Marjan and her family call Laurel Canyon home.
