Wearing a By Walid clothing design means that you're could be sporting what once was a precious linen from the 1920s, a Spanish shawl in the Chinoiserie style or an antique kimono all at once.

After seeing first-hand how incredibly wasteful the fashion industry can be, Walid Al Damirji created a brand that minimizes its waste as much as possible. As well as sourcing garments where the fabric can be reused, By Walid aims to have zero waste coming off of the production lines.

Although clothing that is second hand, upcycled or repurposed in any way is often looked down upon for not being "new," By Walid redefines what it means to own a piece of luxury fashion. Tunics, shirts and pants crafted by this designer retail in the range of $800 to $1,000 and upwards.
