Fashion Runs in The Family: Meet Alana Hadid

“I love fashion, and I really love how fashion can give you your own voice without ever opening your mouth.”

If you’re familiar with the world of fashion, chances are you’re constantly hearing about Gigi and Bella Hadid. But, have you heard about their trendy older sister, Alana Hadid?! Known on Instagram as @lanzybear, Alana has a huge fan base of nearly 170K. Over the course of her career, her talents and laid-back attitude have allowed her to conquer the fashion industry. While this is admirable enough, Alana also has many more big things on the way!

Currently, Alana works as a personal shopper, stylist, and designer in the Los Angeles area. In addition, she’s always traveling for her on-the-go lifestyle. To be honest, there’s really nothing Alana doesn’t do. Amongst her chaotic life, this Hadid’s objective is to find the fun in everything she does. She is relaxed and free-spirited, yet stylish, with a comfortable and fun aesthetic that we’re so into.

Alana’s natural beauty, along with her playful, down-to-earth personality is reflected through her Instagram profile. On there, she posts selfies with silly snapchat filters and funny faces amongst all of her chic, high-fashion pics.

While Alana may not have planned to be involved with fashion, the truth is that style runs in her blood. At the University of Arizona, Alana studied political science, and then continued on to receive a masters degree. Alana got her master’s in international relations at Bond University in Australia. After falling in love with fashion, however, she finally entered the industry she was always destined for.

Since then, Alana has worked as the creative designer of three different brands: Current Moji, Hadid Eyewear, and La Detresse. In addition, she also collaborated with clothing brand Lou & Grey. Here she worked to create a line of sweatshirts and accessories with her nickname “lanzybear” embroidered on each!

We are so excited to announce that we’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Alana to create our newest cases, and we’re seriously dying to show you!

Lost Without You

Inspired by an embroidered sweater she saw a girl wearing while taking a cab ride through the city, Alana’s case sports the slogan “I would be lost without you.” Ironically, this saying isn’t referring to a person, but her iPhone, an item we would all be lost without! The design of the case was inspired by a takeout bag sporting the colors red and pink – one of Alana’s favorite clashing color schemes.

Real Talk

 

“I actually tell people, “Don’t call me. I probably won’t answer.”

Alana Hadid’s monochromatic phone case was inspired by how she uses her phone — as a device used for everything but calling people! "My phone is my whole life–my calendar, my computer, my dictionary and fax machine. I use it for everything, but I probably only use it as a phone when I call my mom.”
