Hass started painting at the age of 11, and by the year 1997, he had his first solo art exhibition. After his 13th show at the age of 17, he decided to move to London to pursue his dream in fine arts. However, his tutors saw great potential in him in the fashion industry and pushed him towards it, and ironically, the first person that discovered this potential was his physics teacher at school. Hence, after graduating from Central Saint Martins and shadowing the greatest from David LaChapelle to Alexander McQueen, Hass decided to devote himself entirely to Fashion.
The world then witnessed his first show in London at the year 2009 as part of the London Fashion Week.
Upon his return to Beirut and to merge his passion for art and fashion, he created wax installations inspired from the Tarot cards where his flat canvases turned into women’s silhouette. Ever since, each of his last 7 collections has been an existentialist story that he wanted to share with the world.
Currently based in Beirut and surrounded by a string of women all around the globe, Hass leads a creative army where he tailors garments that put the woman forward rather than the garment itself. Combining pieces from vintage old school technics all the way to state of the art technology and working only with the finest quality of material, his clients can attest his prodigy.
HASSIDRISS is the couture label empowering women around the world with sophisticated designs that enhance the female silhouette. The label is renowned not only for its exquisite detailing and luxurious fabrics, but more significantly for crafting innovative designs that showcase the beauty of the wearer rather than the elegance of the garment alone.
Recognizing the talent of local artisans in Beirut, Hassidriss endeavours to strengthen the local economy and provide the luxury sector with custom made designs. By merging vintage pieces and traditional techniques with cutting edge technology, while emphasising the use of sustainable materials and ethical practices, this couture label ensures its distinguished reputation.
