Masha Hanson

With cultivated knowledge and natural talent, Masha Hanson launched her entrepreneurial pursuit of fashion and is now poised to become a prominent global figure. Masha was born in Minsk, Belarus, to a notable family of artistic and cultural influence. Both of her grandfathers were renowned for their work, one being a famous writer, the other an esteemed sculptor. Masha’s family would move to Moscow in her early childhood years, before relocating to Panama, and then onward to Miami in the United States.

Before receiving her degree in Philosophy from Columbia University, Masha deferred for a year and modelled for Elite Model Management in New York City, where she discovered the world of fashion and became forever captivated by its glamour. After 5 years in New York, Masha chose to relocate and settle in London. Here she made inroads with the acquisition of franchises Hervé Léger and BCBG Max Azria in 2009, which both saw escalated public appeal and new stores opening on King’s Road and in Knightsbridge. Masha reads and writes five languages fluently: English, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian.

In 2010, Masha gave birth to her son, and entered motherhood alongside several business franchises while dividing her time. 2017 saw the rise of 29 Lowndes, Masha’s very own select boutique of luxury fashion brands catered to discerning local and international clientele.

Outside of work, Masha is an avid painter and enjoys working with oil, acrylic and various other mediums. Masha’s lifelong passion for painting has also allowed her to apply hobbyist taste and education to her profession and segue into art directing with great success.
