Rami Kashov

Rami Kashov Biography

Born in Ramallah, Jerusalem, Rami, 31, left his hometown soon after graduating from high school in 1996 and moved to the United States in pursuit of his childhood dream to one day become a fashion designer. Growing up as the son of an eclectic and fashionable mother, Rami was often commissioned by the local town socialites to design their ensembles.

In 1997, Rami began attending courses in design at Brooks College in California. After several months in the program, Rami was ready for a challenge and decided to take a different path. While keeping in the circle of fashion, Rami worked in retail for several years after his departure from design school. Retail eventually lead him to a buying and merchandising position at a well-known boutique in Los Angeles.

After a stint of traveling to Europe as a buyer, Rami bit the bullet and purchased two sewing machines. He vigorously studied pattern making from the local vintage boutiques. After three years of self-education, Rami began creating what would later be known as the "One of a Kind" collection, which was picked up by notable Los Angeles boutiques Aero & Co. and Diavolina.

Known for his dramatic red carpet gowns, Rami has draped the silhouettes of celebrities and trendsetters such as Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez, Portia De Rossi, Fergie, Amy Smart, Lucy Liu, Melanie Brown, Erykah Badu, Tracee Ellis Ross and Shiva Rose. His designs have been seen on the pages of "In Style," "Flaunt," "Angelino," "Interview," "People" and "Us Weekly."

Rami's designs can be found at many notable boutiques including H. Lorenzo, Xin, Diavolina and Inago in Los Angeles, Paper Dolls and Girlshop in New York, Dressed in Santa Barbara, Riley James, Boru, Five Figs and Masha in San Francisco and Harrods in London.
