CANADIAN love

As a Canadian company, KORHANI home is proud to say that we’ve had press coverage all over our beautiful Nation. So far this year we’ve had the opportunity to bring our brand to the forefront of International fashion shows but we always get the most press from our home-based events when it comes to media coverage!

KORHANI home is interacting on a global scale expanding our market with audiences that we have never been able to reach before. A big reason for this has been the show itself, produced by owner Moji Korhani and his wife and Creative Director, Kirsten Korhani. We continue to share our designs through ongoing conversations and interaction with traditional media channels and the exciting allure of bringing our fashion-forward brand into social media channels.

Venice Carnivale Fall/Winter 2012

The dynamic nature of the show enticed our loyal audience from past seasons but also turned the heads of industry critics and those that do not traditionally follow the scene. For the past three seasons at Toronto Fashion Week, KORHANI home has brought home decor to life on the runway. We find that industry professionals from fashion and home décor now anticipate the show every season, knowing that KORHANI home will never cease to amaze the audience.

Moji & Kirsten Korhani bring KORHANI home to Berlin

Moji and Kirsten Korhani, Owner and Creative Director of KORHANI home, have been traveling to draw inspiration from numerous well-known designer runway shows in North America and Europe. Recently in Berlin, they were thrilled to introduce their fashion-forward brand.

The KORHANI home runway show in Berlin at the AXICA Kongress introduced the Canadian Collection. In Berlin, KORHANI home partnered with the Canadian Tourism Board to showcase the eclectic and creative Canadiana themes on the runway.

The collection captivated the audience and displayed the influence that home decor trends are now inspiring those of fashion.

Moji and Kirsten Korhani brought this Canadian Collection to a place they also call home. Combining inspirations from the past to create styles for the present, they are now connecting with both fashion audiences and home decor purchasers across the globe. The reception has been outstanding and we thank everyone who has taken the time to recognize our exciting brand.

Berufebilder’s Simone Janson Covers KORHANI home in Berlin!

BERLIN – KORHANI home

Fashion promotes home accessories
A truly innovative marketing idea by Kirsten Korhani, Creative Director of KORHANI home, is that she uses design to inspire home decor. In Canada, and now also in her country of birth Germany, she sends the model down the catwalk, while the home decor of the company produces and markets for Retailers – with resounding success.

While others may a find trying to blog about wooly rug images too time consuming, we went a step further. Here’s why: Living in Toronto, Canadian-German designer Kirsten Korhani not only created a new way to advertise KORHANI home products, she created a whole new form of design – and successfully captured her imagination using the catwalk.

At first people just shook their heads at the concept

A creative, almost shy, native of Hamburg, takes the stage after the successful catwalk show last week at the Canadian event in the ITB in Berlin. She shortly comes out, beckons, then disappears behind the scenes.

During our interview, Kirsten mentions that in the beginning, many people shook their head at the idea of rugs being a fashion statement. Just 200 People were at the first show but once they saw the vision, it quickly caught on! KORHANI home opened this year’s World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto with its Deco collection of Moda Mongolia, Glam Punk and Venice Carnivale with great feedback.

From the two-dimensional catalogue to the three-dimensional catwalk
Kirsten has always been interested in fashion. While studying business administration, she was always interested in the industry but she really started her passion after migrating to Canada in 2000.

This passion began after her marriage to KORHANI home President Moji Korhani and joined his rug business with a keen eye to design. The product range has been expanded to home accessories and Kirsten Korhani has taken fancy robes, carpets and other home decor materials, integrating the products of the Company from the two-dimensional catalog to the three-dimensional catwalk.

Indian-style ensembles from carpets
“I want to show that each season can bring fresh air, even with relatively little money, into a home – so how to even do that in fashion [is the question]”, tells the Creative Director. And of course if you look at origins by looking to garments – But exactly that she has created, such as the Indian-style ensemble as seen above, accounts for the charm of the whole concept.

Overall, the reference to Canada in the collection shown on the ITB was more than clear that Kirsten Korhani has been able to leverage her fashion and design experience as a German in Canada.

Canada – Germany compared
Canada, she says, is multi-cultural and it is easy to become one among many. You must prepare yourself for the friendships. “I got married there and that made it much easier.” She went on to describe that Canada is more conservative and family-oriented than Germany.

“People work much more [in Canada] than in Germany, [often] have two or three jobs. Leisure time is a very high priority – and that time is spent with the family preferably, the designer reported on her experiences – before she rushes to the show!

From Rug Fashion to Rug Tote Bags!

At World MasterCard Fashion Week we turned rugs into couture, so we thought as a parting gift for our guests we would transform our beautiful rugs into tote bags to take home!

These stylish designs reflected our three themes for the evening: Moda Mongolia, Glam Punk and Venice Carnivale. We are delighted that everyone at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto who attended our show took away one of our creations!
