Mina Tahir is an Egyptian/American fashion designer whose design sensibility seamlessly blends her heritage, artwork, and textiles with the past, present, and future.
Born in Cairo, raised in Florida, and educated in New York, Paris, and Seoul - Mina is fascinated by various cultures and the way that we interact/view them, respectively. Mina’s research and inspiration are inevitably always lead by her upbringing, history, and the cultures in which she is surrounded by.
Mina creates in order to put art into the world that is not only captivating, but makes the viewer/wearer think, question, and engage.
She recently completed a BFA in Fashion Design at Parsons School of Design in NYC and was awarded the CFDA Future Fashion Graduate (showcased at NYFW Mens July 2018), as well as, the CFDA+ Award for her thesis collection “Youth” which explores the relationship between Eastern and Western subcultures through the use of technological advances via the re-contextualization of traditional crafts and dress.
