WHO WE ARE
ORKEN was created by Shiva Novinfar. Shiva was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. As a child, she was always fascinated by creating things and usually found herself drawing clothes and making clothes out of newspaper.
Shiva studied Graphic design in her home city of Tehran and worked mainly as a graphic designer.
Later on she began formally studying fashion design at TAFESA in Adelaide, South Australia to learn more about the fashion industry, and created the fashion label SHIVA NOVINFAR.
Recognising trends in the retail fashion industry, Shiva created her second label, ORKEN. ORKEN is a product of Shiva’s two great passions: the exhilaration that comes from living an active, adventurous lifestyle; and the confidence that comes with looking stylish and feminine while you’re living life to the fullest.
