A graduate of Parsons the New School of Design’s class of 2018, Dala Eido holds a BFA in Fashion Design and has studied at both their Paris and New York campuses, where she presented her thesis collection “Chantier Insolite”, an experimental unisex collection which dealt primarily in recycled materials and mechanical hardware, using Beirut’s rough edges as an inspiration, as well as her childhood drawings.
Selected pieces of the collection were on display at the Mona Bismarck American Center in Paris and Dala was one of the few selected students of her class to have had pieces on display at the 70th annual Parsons Benefit in New York.
Dala then launched her eponymous brand “Dala Eido” in the Fall of 2018 with a Ready-to-Wear collection at luxury fashion boutique IF in Beirut, Lebanon.
A slow fashion brand with an adamant zero-waste mindset intertwined with highly conceptual and artistic ideas, “Dala Eido” makes use nearly exclusively of recycled materials and scrap fabrics, often resulting in completely unique pieces given the scarcity of the materials used at times. The brand also places an emphasis on collaboration with local artisans in producing its collections, with the purpose of encouraging local innovation in fashion.
