Style maven and entrepreneur, Maryam Afshari Khreibani, founded Baanou the Boutique and E-commerce website in 2014, setting out to start a movement for women in Houston to feel empowered and beautiful in their own skin. Boasting a coveted list of exclusive designers including Stone Cold Fox and Aussie favorites, Thurley and Alice McCall, Baanou has quickly become a leading fashion destination in Houston as recognized by our city’s top magazines and influencers. Starting her own fashion label last year, Maryam now designs and manufactures all her clothes in Houston, working with groups like Interfaith Ministries to find skilled refugees and other local seamstresses. Having attended the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University, Maryam began her career in public accounting at KPMG in Los Angeles, and is proud to have been a part of the production of the Academy Award® Winning Documentary short, Inocenté. A natural entrepreneur, Maryam continues to focus on developing future businesses concentrating on women’s growing presence in the business community. When not working, Maryam enjoys playing with her two-year old son, James and heads to the beach any chance she gets.
