The LEILA HAFZI brand was launched in Stavanger, Norway in 1997. A new voice was born on the high- fashion scene, and ethical and eco-conscious trade found its future leading lady. In a sensual, elegant manner, cultures are explored and environmental issues highlighted.

The trans-cultural collaboration that is the LEILA HAFZI team, makes the impossible possible in the hazy and mostly chaotic production site of Kathmandu. Here fashion business and development work hand in hand in a way no other high-end brand can claim.

Leila Hafzi’s designs are instantly recognisable by their romantic, feminine and bohemian look combined with an innovative fusion of themes from different cultures, with inspiration drawn from Norway, Persia, Greece and Nepal.

Over the years, Leila Hafzi has received numerous national awards. In both 2007 and 2011 she was awarded ”Designer of the Year” at the KK and Costume Awards, as well as the Environmental prize of the decade by OFW, and the “Fashion for a Cause” prize in 2011. In 2014 Leila Hafzi was awarded the price for best sustainable fashion brand at Henne (Her) Nalǿyet prize in Oslo.

In 2021 Leila Hafzi was given the the well-renowned ELLE Award Best Sustainable Bridal Gown Brand, as tribute to her long-lasting commitment in favour of sustainable fashion.

The brand is very well positioned and sold in many exclusive boutiques alongside top international brands, and is regularly worn by variety of celebrities world wide.
