Nahid Farhoud’s sophistication is instinctual. Creating ethnic and cultural celebrations for esteemed clientele globally is not only a result of over two decades of experience; it is the mark of her sixth sense for forward fashion and detailed design.
She was raised in a family who celebrated cultural diversity and encouraged world travel. Nahid arrived in the United States from Kuwait at age 17 with her parents and siblings, having already traversed much of the globe. A curious adventurer with an entrepreneurial spirit, Nahid shared in the running of several family operations in Southern California – from real estate development to laundromats. An appreciation for her hands-on experience in business management and her love of planning family parties ignited an interest in developing her own venture. A course in the art of wedding planning was all that was needed for Nahid to identify her professional calling.
Nahid has an unparalleled passion for design and color; they are studies she immerses herself in constantly. Nahid’s passion for humanity and love of family comes through in her work as well. She has volunteered her time for such nonprofit organizations as Continuous Giving, Mama’s Kitchen, Just Call Us Volunteers, and the March of Dimes, whose annual gala she planned for several years.
Her daughter, Dana, and husband, Jamal, are her heartbeat. In her personal time, Nahid spends time cooking, gardening, reading biographies, and window shopping.
