Alaa Najd

Fashion designer

Born in July 1983, I didn't start his career in fashion until I was 27, when I realized that I could not carry on in the business field, I then applied to study fashion design at ESMOD - a Paris - based fashion school with international programs, including one in Beirut. After graduation, I nailed the jury prize that earned him an internship at Georges Chakra fashion house, my journey afterwards was marked with numerous collaborations with different well known fashion designers including Basil Soda and Caroline Seikaly. Not long after, I applied for Project Runway Middle East and was the inaugural winner of the first season. The guidance I received during the program made me balance my creative style with an awareness of the commercial market forging a refined and polished identity. My signature style is minimal, classical and modern with an edge of complexity. My taste is influenced by architecture and Origami twists, which are the cornerstone of my innovative vision of the modern woman. I have established my own line and is relentlessly working on engraving my own legacy, identity and innovative vision onto the huge edifice of lebanese and hopefully internationally successful and influential fashion designers.
