About Me

Kourosh Babaian is the designer and creative director of Janique. Born in Iran, he has been around fashion all his life. He watched his Dad run a boutique and fabric store and his Mom make most of her own evening gowns. At the age of eleven, his family was forced to leave Iran after the revolution and move to America.

He studied at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and Polimoda in Florence, Italy. While in his last semester of college, he founded Janique in 1998. Janique which means woman in a Persian dialect of his grandparents origins seemed to be the perfect name.

In the past 12 years Janique has become one of the leading designers and producers of stylish, sophisticated evening wear in the world, it is renowned for its innovative quirky style, quality workmanship and exceptional fit as well as its meticulous attention to detail.

The designs are sought after and much desired in Hollywood as well as boutiques and stores around the world with an international appeal. Each collection balances feminine details with a seductive sensibility.

Kourosh works in his showroom in Manhattan with his family, who helm the business side of the worldwide brand.

Hi There,

I am absolutely in love with your work. I am a curve model looking for up and coming, as well as established designers who want to expand their portfolio to curvier-not fat- girls (I am also 6ft tall). Curves are in!

I have a great photographer and MUA who are both highly awarded and we are working on a project. Kirsten Fredrickson (MUA) and JMP Photo (Photography).

I was wondering if you would consider sending up a few pieces that I could shoot in. I would send them back in pristine condition and can secure it with a credit card. You would get the photos, as well.

Let me know what you think and I hope to hear from you soon!
Christina Brennan
