DescriptionHÍDAS creates high-end fashion collections that aim to shine a light on complex and difficult global issues, making them accessible to a wide range of audiences. HÍDAS collections have been shown in cities around the world such as New York, Milan, Jerusalem, Taiwan, and written about in Vogue Italia, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and others. Michal Hidas and her innovative work were also recognized in 2018 by her inclusion in the Forbes Israel 30 Under 30 list. Bridgings' first collection was made in partnership with a Palestinian architect from Gaza. The textiles patterns were created from a series of optimistic architectural drawings made in Gaza, which Michal interpreted into a full collection. Bridgings' unique aesthetics gained international recognition while spreading the possibility of an Israeli-Palestinian collaboration. HÍDAS aims to raise awareness, spark conversation and action, and give voice to the desperate plight of the the world's refugees. 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.
