Ayse Arel Kulahcioglu, founder of Maison Orient, after 13 years long experience in the luxury fashion e-commerce field working for global companies such as the LVMH Group, wanted to go on a new, bolder direction and decided to shift her focus towards undiscovered designers from emerging regions across the world. 

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 local creators and to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western Worlds. 

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

Maison Orient’s aim is to help local designers from emerging regions of the world to be seen and heard on a global platform and to tell their remarkable stories to the whole world.
