GOTM: Iman Hasan, VP of Lifestyle + Events
Say hello to our September Girl of the Month: Iman Hasan. She carries an undeniable energy that illuminates her and her surroundings as she goes about her daily life. It’s no wonder that she works in lifestyle and events, along with being a style ‘it-girl’ who has worked with luxury clients that we all have major heart eyes for (yeah, brands like Burberry, Cartier, Dolce & Gabbana…just to name a few.). She grew up in London but has lived and worked in Dubai, Miami, New York, and LA– this has given her a diverse set of experiences, cultures, and energies. Though she’s known for her beautiful events and personal style, the more time we spent with her, the more we grasped that she has a gift for connecting people and ideas in a way that creates organic, yet beautifully curated and exciting atmospheres– this gift translates into her professional success and her thriving life. She has a vibrant personal life full of friends, good food, and love. She’s all about balance, connecting the dots, and being who she is wherever she is. And here at Pitusa, we’re all about those things too.
“Iman is the VP of the Lifestyle and Events division for Kreps DeMaria and has been working in the luxury fashion and lifestyle industry for over 10 years. Prior to joining Kreps DeMaria, Iman was a co-owner of RAC, a full-service fashion and lifestyle firm which included clients such as Aquazzura, Neiman Marcus, TOPSHOP, W Hotel South Beach, Intermix, and Net-A-Porter to name a few. While in London, she worked closely with clients such as Liberty London, Browns Fashion, Mary Katrantzou, Erdem, Burberry, Diana Von Furstenberg, Loulou’s, Cartier. Additionally, she worked as a contributing editor and lifestyle columnist for savoirflar.com, style.com/arabia, Emirate Woman, and Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. Iman has co-hosted as well as created events for Dolce and Gabbana, Refinery 29, Theory, Soho Beach House, Reformation, Goop, Longchamp, Armani, and Mara Hoffman among many others. With her own personal following of 56k on Instagram, Iman is able to strategize concepts, create events, curate a targeted guest list, and possesses a global database of editors, influencers, and brands.”
Fashion / Style
Iman goes way back with Pitusa, so, we asked her what draws her to the brand. “Clara’s style is constantly evolving from fun whimsical resort wear, day to night, bohemian chic. She IS Pitusa and that’s a big draw because there’s so much clothing happening everywhere. She outdoes herself every year from hair and makeup to styling. She totally embodies the brand and it’s an extension of her. Practically too, it’s great quality, feels very good, well-fitting, and the price points are fair.”
Because Iman travels a good bit, she’s able to draw inspiration from many cultures and styles (though she certainly is inspired by Instagram and all social media channels!). She talked about how style is different everywhere she goes, for example, if she’s in LA she’s dressing differently than if she’s in Miami or New York…and this keeps her inspired and fresh!
- I don’t believe in following trends, wear what you feel comfortable in!
- Mixing high with low pricepoint; It tends to be more unique and creative this way. You don’t have to be fully designer!
- Know your body type and accentuate your best assets.
- Color is good, I like to have fun and not be restrictive about anything.
Iman’s on-the-go tips:
Iman is such a foodie.
Seriously. She truly appreciates good food and drink and the people surrounding her throughout the experience. When we asked her if there were any fun-facts about her that not many know, she said, “I eat three times my body weight, lol. I’d give up anything, but not food.” She’s a full-experience gal and we love that about her. From the finest dining to the best hole-in-the-wall spots…Iman is your go-to for food suggestions.

How Iman stays spiritually grounded:
- “I believe in the energy of crystals and how they channel certain things; I typically grab a crystal on my way out of the house…lately, it’s been rose quartz.”
