How it all began...

Samila Adabi, a former Miss Iran Pageant runner up, had plenty of upbringing in custom tailoring and experience with formal wear. Her mother, was the premier dress maker for the elite in Iran. Over time, she developed an exquisite eye for colors and styles and a sure sense for what many women desired. In 1995, Samila opened her first boutique in Bellevue. As early as 1997, the Seattle times recognized Samila Boutique as “top 5 woman’s apparel boutiques in Seattle”. From the 2000’s, Samila used her experience and style to solidify herself as the go to fashion expert and the destination store in the Northwest for Woman’s formal dresses; dressing woman for the Oscars, Grammy’s, Inauguration balls and much more.

In 2009, Samila’s daughter Yasmin Shirdel, followed in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother, becoming the lead stylist and buyer of the Redmond boutique. Shortly thereafter, the boutique was moved into a larger 3,300 square foot showroom. In addition, a collection of couture dresses were hand selected and brought in from designer showrooms all over the world, Samila & Yasmin designed their own line of dresses called Samila Designs and the  boutique launched a new website and marketing campaigns in all social media platforms, bringing Samila Boutique into the homes of all the Women of the Northwest.

As of recently, Samila boutique has been featured on King 5 news morning show and the Seattle times for there formal wear expertise. It has also cemented itself as the destination for formal wear in the entire Northwest, showcasing over 5,000 unique dresses in the Redmond, Washington, showroom.
