HALA KAIKSOW is a luxury Womenswear label that takes inspiration from a time in which occupation and cultural origins gave clothing an unwavering identity. We work at re-appropriating work-wear and traditional garments into a contemporary context; elevating them into wearable art through a play on materiality. We approach our designs as sculptures that move around the bodies that wear them. All our garments are hand crafted and made to order.
Hala Kaiksow is from Bahrain, an island in the Middle East. Kaiksow recently graduated with a Master of Collection Design from Polimoda, in Florence, Italy. She had previously obtained a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the School of Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University with a sculpture concentration in Metals and Glass. Through her studies she has lived in the US, France, the UK and Italy. Her concepts are often a juxtaposition of the Eastern and Western worlds she lives in.
