Dukkan DAH, a concept store started by Dar Al Hekma (DAH) University’s Visual Communication Department, aims to promote the startup young designers of the DAH community to get recognition in the marketplace.
At the store, graphic designers, fashion designers, interior designers, and different artists at the university have the opportunity to showcase their creations.
You can shop books, planners, fashionable pieces, jewelry, and stationery items – all created by the university’s students and alumni. Some notable designers include Dalia Chawany (owner of Hijaz), Alaa Balkhy (owner of Fyunka), and Sara Reyess (owner of Foulard).
After its successful launch at the Westbay event in February 2018, Dukkan opened its first official shop on campus along with its online store.
The concept store gives visitors more reasons to spend time shopping there, with new artistic pieces regularly added to both the online and in-person stores, from emerging designers who are just starting out, or want to build more on their careers.
The shop also aims to raise funds to help support the Dar Al Hekma University scholarship fund. This past year, Dukkan DAH managed to sponsor one student through the sales of their items.
We fell in love with this beach-themed cheese/bread service platter from Dukkan Dar Al Hekma! Designed by N. Merve Goknil, Dar Al Hekma University graduate and faculty member in the Interior Design department, this plate is coated with resin and topped with micro glitter – it will definitely add a touch of glam to your gatherings.
