Michal Hidas

Michal Hidas is an Israeli fashion designer and the winner of the “Fashion Humanitarian Award,” presented by Runway the Realway during New York Fashion Week, September, 2017.

Ms. Hidas was raised with a deep appreciation for the arts and, early on, developed the essential skills to succeed in fashion. In 2015 she graduated from the istituto Marangoni in Milan, one of the world’s most prestigious high fashion academies. During her studies she ranked first among 40 thousand contestants in the I-SKOOL digital fashion contest sponsored by ISKO, one of the largest denim producers in the world.

Soon after graduating from Marangoni, Michal created a highly successful collection in collaboration with a Palestinian architect from Gaza called BRIDGING . The collection was shown around the world and through its inspiring story helped raise awareness about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It also highlighted the possibility of Israeli-Palestinian collaboration to an audience that is not usually exposed to it. Michal recently launched her second collection, Bridging Spring-Summer 2018 during September’s New York Fashion Week. The new collection gives voice to Syrian refugees through fashion, art and design. It was inspired by Michal’s volunteer work with Syrian refugees at a camp in Leros, Greece and an Israeli hospital.

AND A WAY TO TELL A STORY…” - Michal Hidas
The Name - Bridging

While the BRIDGING fashion collection was being produced Michal needed to find a name for her fashion label. She chose her last name, HÍDAS. Later, she was amazed to discover that Hidas means “bridging” in Hungarian.


The HÍDAS brand reflects Michal’s point of view as a designer and humanitarian. Her passion for art and fashion drives her to challenge herself, as well as her clients, with new innovations in every collection.


The goal of making values-based fashion available for everyone is also reflected through high-end, plus-size and modest clothing.
