We had the good fortune of connecting with Sandra Madjdi and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sandra, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
As a Iranian American, born in Tehran and raised in the USA. Our culture is filled with rich cultural values and traditions that my parents continued to envoke in us. How i see life is not by surface but deeper into purpose.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My art is timeless, chic, and edgy. I don’t follow trends, I set them, I have never been a traditional fashion seeker, everything I do is a tailored experience of the client as an individual. I am most proud of being a mother to my daughter, most proud of my daughter, and excited for my new clothing line that’s dropping in Spring 21′ and my new docu-series. Nothing is ever easy, not only education but experience play great roles but I believe most importantly, is our motivation and our purpose that serves behind that. I over come challenges with positive thinking, even in failure I find growth and knowledge for what is next. Lessons I have learned: Lower your expectations from others, and greater your own expectations. What I would love for the world to know is that I defeat all odds by never saying no to myself.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
You must go to South Beach where people come from all over the world to swim in our warm water, The Grove for retail shopping and a little bit of history, Wynwood for Art, Little Havana to understand Cuban culture. I would eat in Little Havana, for some traditional Cuban food. I would go to Sugar in Brickell City Center, it has a beautiful rooftop and views of Miami. Mango’s is the best place for salsa dancing and people watching, and Design District for the out of the box fashions and possible celebrity sightings.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
i owe everything i am today to my mother & father . they showed us the impossible has so many possible reasons to succeed .
