BIO - Mira hayek

 

Mira Hayek is a Lebanese designer born in 1983 and based in Beirut. Her inspiration comes from graphic design, lifestyle, electronic music, the 80s and animation. She studied graphic design at the Lebanese American University in Beirut graduating with honors, and fashion design at Istituto Marangoni, Milan. After completing a Master Research Study Program in Fashion and Textile Design with distinction at Istituto Europeo di Design, she did internships at Elie Saab, Beirut and at Erdem, London.

Since then, she has been working as a freelance graphic designer and fashion illustrator. In 2011, she was selected by the STARCH foundation to design her first two ready-to-wear collections under her own label "mirahayek". This is her second and last collection as part of the Starch team.

UN ELEPHANT QUI SE BALAAANCAIT Spring/Summer 2012

The inspiration started flowing after watching The Darjeeling Limited, a moving comedy about three brothers reconnecting through a spiritual journey across India. It is a captivating movie both visually and emotionally through all the fighting and reconciliation, search and healing and all the surprising situations they find themselves in.

 

This collection is designed for a close circle of young women, be it sisters or best friends, on their own adventure during this summer. A time to relax, let loose and celebrate just being together. A time to laugh about sweet memories, live in the exciting Now and create precious moments to remember forever. The collection consists of one of a kind pieces; a playful assemblage of airy fabrics and refreshing colors.

 

The geometric cuts and hand sewn patterns are inspired by Rangoli (row of colours), a traditional indian art drawn on special occasions. It is the creation of geometric patterns combining colorful images and motifs in order to bring peace and harmony.
