Hi fairy family !

About Me ::

My name is Aris and I’m originally from the Dominican Republic but grew up in Antwerp, Belgium. I used to work as a corporate wardrobe stylist before becoming a fashion designer, influencer and model. I love to live life to the fullest and to travel wherever the universe takes me. So far, I’ve lived in The Dominican Republic, Belgium, Italy, China, Thailand and currently I’m living in Vietnam. I’ve traveled to over 20 countries and each of them has influenced my views and outlook on life.

I like to say that I’m an outcast because of my looks and background. Being a black Latina who grew up in Europe and is currently living in Asia has been an incredible gift. It has given me a deep knowledge about very different cultures and aesthetic. You can clearly see this in the way I dress and express myself. I like to mix prints, colors and I’m not afraid of going for bold looks.

Fashion has definitely been one of the most important influences in my life as it gave me a way to escape reality. Growing up I felt lost and silenced, but when I watched movies such as Barbarella, I dreamed of myself as a glamorous warrior who didn’t have to answer to anybody. My Dominican roots really spice things up when it comes to my love for anything slightly tacky and wacky.

What is “House Of Aris” ::

After years of dealing with depression, being limited by social anxiety, putting up with a narcissistic mother and working in the fashion industry for other people as a stylist and model, It was time for me to create my own business and platform. I decided to built a brand without having to compromise my personal style or having to change who I am.

So in 2018 ‘House Of Aris’ was born to bring out every dreamer’s unapologetic and colorful inner queen to life. Together with my boyfriend Kane, I started creating harnesses and single pieces that make haters cry and lovers become Stans. And because to me there’s nothing worse than mass production, I decided to only create clothing and accessories for those who dare to be bold and different. Fabrics are limited to quantity produced, making HOA pieces unique treats for my unique magical customers.

I create personalized and custom made House Of Aris orders. Sizes can vary from XS, S, M, L, XL up to 3XL.

Custom orders are paid in full and up front once the desired design is agreed upon.

Orders can take up to three weeks to be finished depending on how busy I am, size and on how complex the design is.

Price is determined by size, fabric and design.

Personalized and/or custom orders are shipped out as soon as the piece has been created.

Make sure to send correct measurements and clear guidelines, and together we can make your dream H.O.A. outfit come to life.

You’ll be kept updated throughout the design and creating process.
