Art & Life with Hanny Mousavi

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hanny Mousavi.

Hanny, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
My name is Hanny Mousavi, I’m from France and I move to Los Angeles at 19, eight years ago, to study English for business. I always knew I wanted to have my own business and my own fashion line. I started with very unique leather jackets, called @HannyMousavi, I explored my creativity and being from Paris, leather is something we rock. After having my spiritual awakening, which was through a traumatic loss in my life, I changed my vision and started a swimwear line called Alpha Wolves. I believe that every artist study themselves through different endeavors before finding their true calling.

I wanted to be indépendant and stop “just” exploring my creativity and so I answered the call. Leather was no longer fitting in my principles. I didn’t want to hurt animals or partake. Plus the investment itself was out of budget. Alpha Wolves then came in mind, as I started becoming more aware of my own power, my confidence, and as I started loving myself more, I truly wanted to share this energy and message through my swimwear line for all other women because I know what it feels to be insecure.

Please tell us about your art.
I am an artist but also an entrepreneur, my swimwear line is called ALPHA WOLVES SWIM, I am launching the site in just a few days www.AlphaWolveSwim.comEach swimwear is specifically designed for different needs. We currently are starting with a limited edition, of five styles. Each style is named after an uplifting keyword. So we can insert into the buyer’s subconscious mind, a positive affirmation. Confidence, self-love, will power, intuition and desire. I named my swimwear based on my creativity and intuition, only to notice that the book I am currently writing about the journey of entrepreneurship and hoping to publish in the following year, is having the same titles.

I needed the confidence to begin on this journey. Self-love was what pushed me to create a better life for myself. Will power was my asset number 1, to achieve all the task at hand, intuition was needed to know what direction to take when at a crossroad, and desire, simply having the freedom to desire whatever it is that the heart wants.

See I don’t believe in competition, I believe that everyone has something unique to bring to the table. Everyone has a unique vibration. I don’t feel threatened by any other brands, and I’m hoping to collaborate because The power of synergy is something I truly believe in. After all, that is how we give birth. The creation process is more than just art. It’s a combination of energies. After I lost my mother, I turned my pain, into this powerful brand. I had to transmute the negative energy into something positive. Or else. It would have been the end of me. I believe that many people gave up on themselves and live a submissive life without even knowing it, so I hope that wherever I go, wherever this brand goes, it inspires to aspire women to step into their power. I don’t believe living a life of scarcity or dating someone that will fulfill a lack. What I believe is that we are all designers of our lives. We have free will to do whatever it is we want. The road is long and full of obstacles. That’s true, No wonder many give up. But I promise that if you get on that road knowing it’s not gonna be easy, you will last longer and even better you could truly appreciate your rewards for the rest of your life. If only the mind wasn’t limiting us. How would you design your life?

What would you recommend to an artist new to the city, or art, in terms of meeting and connecting with other artists and creatives?
BALANCE. Not loosing track of the very reason you have moved in this town. LA can easily distract you from your goals. It sells dreams, and also takes them away. It can be your best friend, and your worst enemy at the same time. You must balance between socializing and getting the work done, or else you could turn into a lost Angels.. The power of focus truly takes its meaning in this town.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
