Lusanet Collective is a creative hub and retail space launched by Lusine Simonyan and Anet Abnous, two business owners with a vision of connecting founders and creators with opportunities to network, create, and promote their businesses through every stage of development and growth.
As entrepreneurs themselves, Lusine and Anet have encountered the highs and lows of transforming their passions into professional pursuits and possess a variety of experiences gained by developing, launching, and expanding their own businesses. With those experiences in mind, Lusanet Collective aims to resolve the challenges faced by small and growing businesses.
Featuring a retail space that showcases items for sale, Lusanet Collective also seeks to serve the creative community as an idea-exchange platform, a resource bank, an exhibition venue, and, most importantly, a gathering of like-minded creative professionals who will come together as part of a nurturing and encouraging environment focused on business development and professional and personal growth.
Through monthly pop-ups and curated events, members of the collective, which will include artists, designers, and business owners, will gain access to new audiences and critical resources that will elevate their businesses and brands and enable them to discover new partnerships with investors, manufacturers, and developers. As the community grows, the collective will foster the personal connections that will support, empower, and guide business owners as they discover the endless opportunities available to them.
MEET THE FOUNDERS
In 2019, Lusine Simonyan launched Miray Collections, an online marketplace that represented more than 40 Armenian artists, fashion designers, and jewelry makers from around the world. Driven by her unwavering passion and determination, Lucy embarked on a journey to empower artists and showcase their unique, sustainable creations on a global scale. Her venture, Miray Collections, served as more than just a retail platform for Armenian goods; it became a pathway for artistic growth and entrepreneurship, particularly for Armenian women.
Lusine has a Master's Degree in Accounting and Finance from French University in Armenia and works as a Senior Accountant in Downtown Los Angeles.
In addition to loving numbers, Lucy is very involved in the community. She serves as a treasurer in Burbank Armenian Association board and in Zonta Club of Burbank. In 2021 she was nominated for the 32nd Annual Women Achievers Award.
In 2022, Lusine Simonyan and Anet Abnous, joined forces to transform the digital dream into a tangible reality. The result is the “Lusanet Collective,” a brick-and-mortar store that stands as a testament to their shared commitment to supporting artists and artisans. In this new chapter, Lucy and Anet bring the dreams into the physical world, providing a space where artists’ high-quality, sustainable creations can be experienced firsthand by a broader audience. Just as before, their mission remains grounded in the belief that artistry and entrepreneurship can flourish hand in hand, fostering opportunities and growth for creative individuals, particularly women.
Anet Abnous is a visionary artist, creative director, and CEO of Anet's Collection, arenowned Fashion and Accessories brand renowned for its art-inspired designs. With a deep-rooted passion for wearable art, nurtured by her tailor father, Anet founded Anet's Collection in 2015. Her creations, a fusion of Armenian cultural motifs and luxury aesthetics, have graced European showrooms, museum shops, and retail outlets.
Anet's blend of luxury retail and visual styling infuses innovation into her designs. Her work has been showcased in international exhibitions, publications, and she's curated numerous art shows. Beyond her creative pursuits, Anet actively supports nonprofits, leveraging her networking skills for fundraising.
Educated in Fine Arts from CUNY-Queens College, with Fashion credentials from Iran, and a Business Certificate from Cornell University's Bank of America Institute for Women's Entrepreneurship via a Tory Burch Foundation grant, Anet's qualifications underscore her expertise.
As co-founder of Downtown Burbank's Lusanet Collective, Anet merges artistry with business acumen. Lauded by media like CBS-KCAL and FOX 11-Good Morning LA, this venture exhibited the works of over 100 creators in its first year.
Anet's creations reflect her unique talent and vision, continuing to inspire globally. Joining the Burbank Art Commission at 2023, she's set to enrich the local art scene with her distinct perspective and connectivity, solidifying her impact in both fashion and art.
