ODAY SHAKAR is a Southern California native of Iraqi descent whose childhood sketches of women and horses unmistakably showed the early emergence of an exceptional creative talent. Oday sought solace and guidance from an aunt, who instinctively recognized his artistic inclination and chose to mentor him in draping, pattern making and sewing. This training proved valuable and indeed prophetic when Oday attended a runway show and realized in a moment of sheer clarity that he was destined to be a designer.
