Michelle Aznavorian has always been destined to thrive in fashion. Working her way up from fashion student, to buyer, to sought after designer, her label MISHA COLLECTION has been going from success to success…not to mention New York Fashion Week’s event, Fashion Palette. Couturing spoke to Michelle ahead of the show about her inspiration, New York Fashion Week, and what’s coming up next.
