Dilara Yar Huryasar is a Costa Rican / Turkish-American artist and fashion designer based in New York City.
The roots of Dilara’s entanglement with fashion were planted by the very seed that it now feeds; the human form. The daughter of a sculptor, Dilara’s mother would bring her along as a child to live model sculpting sessions. Here, Dilara began to view the body as not something to behold but something to adorn.
Dilara is a graduate of the Bachelor’s of Fine Arts program at Parsons School of Design, majoring in Fashion Design and founder/designer of her eponymous brand, Dilara Yar with expectations to expand post-graduation.
