Our Story

mother and daughters with Eiffel Tower in the background

Marais Sky {ma-ray sky} is a designer baby and girls brand founded in 2019 by Sepi Danosian Bahadori. Named after her daughters Valentina Marais + Juliette Sky, the brand is also inspired by the Marais, the historic art and fashion district in Paris.

Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Sepi was strongly influenced by her parents' art and music backgrounds. Her collections are inspired by some of her favorite works of art growing up, such as the dreamy ballet costumes from the cherished classic "The Nutcracker" and Edgar Degas' ballet dancers. A civil engineer by degree, Sepi's understanding of structure and composition coupled with her love of classic art and couture has given her a keen eye for fashion design.

Sepi started with a made-to-order Etsy shop back in 2013 called Little Marais. After years of custom, handmade orders for hundreds of little girls (including celebrity children such as Nicky Hilton Rothschild's daughter) in May 2019 Marais Sky officially launched its first signature collection, FOREVER STARDUST, designed in California and ethically crafted in India. This collection includes tops, bottoms and dresses, inspired by Little Marais' custom collection. It debuted at Playtime Children's Trade Show, New York in August 2019.

So, who is the Marais Sky girl? She's a dreamer with an artistic edge; a star who can be anything she wants to be. And when she twirls her heart out, she embodies our quote... "What tulle dreams are made of..."
