HÍDAS presents a brave new perspective on the power of fashion and its role in society.
'Bridging Collection Fall-Winter' was created through a bridge of art, design and fashion between two artists, a Palestinian architect from Gaza, and the Israeli fashion designer, Michal Hidas. Imagining, dreaming and creating together.
“A Bridge between people, a bridge between arts, a bridge between cultures, a bridge between loves, a bridge between realities.”
Bridgings' second collection was created in collaboration with a Palestinian creative partner and a Jewish calligrapher from Jerusalem. The collection was inspired by Hidas’ volunteer work with Syrians in Leros, Greece, and in an Israeli hospital. HÍDAS is a winner of the “Fashion Humanitarian Award,” presented by 'Runway the Realway' during New York Fashion Week.
A unique collaboration with the Weizmann Institute of Science; images which were produced in the labs of the institute as part of scientific research, were transformed into a beautiful wearable science collection.
"The Weizmann Institute has a long history of investigation and discovery
rooted in a mission of advancing science for the benefit of humanity."
