Ayse Arel, founder of Maison Orient, after 10 years long experience in the luxury fashion e-commerce field, wanted to go on a new, bolder direction and decided to shift her focus towards undiscovered designers from the Orient.


Ayse came up with Maison Orient as a strategy & solution to help regional talent expand their businesses globally and reach international markets. This is how the e-commerce platform came to be: a translation of Ayse’s desire to promote Oriental creators and to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western. 


Maison Orient is a curated e-commerce platform for brands, designers and artists from the "Orient“ with a mission to introduce them to a wider global audience and tell their story, aspiring to connect creative talents and their designs from different corners of the world with the curious consumers who are looking for uniqueness with a story behind. 


Maison Orient’s aim is to help emerging designers originating from the Middle East, Africa, India & Far East regions to be seen and heard on a global platform and to tell their remarkable stories.
