Alissia Hal has had a love for fashion and textiles for as long as she can remember. Born in France into a Greek-Algerian family, she remembers buying and selling second-hand finds, thrifting, and even customizing her own looks from as young as eleven years old. After working eight years in the fashion industry, she had a clearer vision of what she wanted to create.
Now based in Berlin and still with a passion for aesthetics, Alissia is a self-taught designer and creator, as well as the brains behind her self-named label Alissia Hal. Inspired by her roots and her chosen tribe , Alissia’s collections pay homage to her years traveling around the world and beyond.
The label AH was founded in May 2020, and currently has 2 collections released per year, summer and winter. The line of clothing is an exploration into the cultures which combines a lot of references and researchs, in the results of hand-made ready-to-wear and couture pieces, many of which feature elements of upcycling.
The inspiration behind Alissia’s design collection combines avant-garde, minimalism with paganism, history with spirituality, to create made-to-order and one of a kind pieces which perfectly convey Alissia’s own eclectic story.
