Lebanese-based designer Alaa Najd started his career after being awarded the jury prize at his final year in ESMOD in 2013, which earned him an internship at Georges Chakra fashion house. His journey afterwards was marked by numerous collaborations with different well known fashion designers including Basil Soda and Caroline Seikaly. He later applied for Project Runway Middle East and was the inaugural winner of the first season. He has since established his own atelier and is relentlessly working on engraving his own legacy, identity and innovative vision onto the huge edifice of Lebanese and hopefully internationally successful and influential fashion designers.
