Oh how I love getting e-mails from new designers! Allow me today to introduce you to Dina Khalifé, a Madrid/Beirut-based accessories and textile designer. She has started her brand in December 2011 through Rabih Kayrouz’ Starch Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Beirut that gives a chosen few emerging Lebanese designers the opportunity to develop their collections, enhance their skills, promote their brand and present their designs for a period of 12 months. I have previously posted about it here.
Dina Khalifé’s collections combine silk, cotton and woolen scarves, charismatic jewelry, fun and colorful clothes and hair accessories. Each collection begins with scarf design, featuring hand drawn illustrations, and playful images on high quality fabrics. Intricate jewelry from themes or objects depicted in the scarves, as well as a range of clothes, further complement the creativity in each scarf harmoniously. The designer is planning on participating in exhibitions in Kuwait this year, but in the mean time, check out some of her amazing work below and if interested, you can shop it online here.
