Ariana Ost is a designer brand whose mission is to elevate the everyday and celebrate life’s simple moments. Reviving the lost art of glamour through her jewelry approach in creating unique modern heirlooms, Ariana’s philosophy is to touch everyone with a wide range of items from Home to Fashion accessories. The pieces allow us to tap into our inner curiosity and provide a platform for self-expression. Ariana is thrilled to share her romantic aesthetic of designs that are hand crafted in New York City.
Ariana Ost grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y. and has always been a creative dreamer. Ariana studied abroad in Paris and London, while attending Parsons School of Design in New York City. She was exposed to and inspired by the old world handcrafted approach to fashion. She decided that her mission would be to revive European ingenuity and make it accessible to the contemporary market.
The life challenges that Ariana faced at an early age gave her the determination to create products that elevate the everyday. She knows that while we all have nostalgia and yearn for yesterday we must appreciate the present and surround ourselves with objects to celebrate life’s simple moments.
Ariana is always inspired by her husband Eric, daughter Aurelie, and dog London (whom is a fixture in the studio and insists on being included in every meeting).
Ariana is the visionary behind the brand working closely with her creative team of sample makers and metal smiths in their charming Flatiron studio in Manhattan. Her father, Jack, operates the business by handling all aspects of production and deals with worldwide suppliers to get the finest materials and execute quality workmanship.
