Mohamed Hadid, Gigi & Bella Hadid’s Dad, Starts Third Career As Handbag Artist [PHOTOS]
Gigi and Bella Hadid‘s multi-millionaire father, Mohamed Hadid, is hand-painting luxury bags for any clients willing to pay $5,000. Has the real estate developer traded building mansions and high-rise hotels for a paintbrush?
It turns out that art has always been a hobby of Hadid’s. When he is not supporting his model children, including his youngest son Anwar Hadid, at fashion shows, he is in his Bel-Air estate painting.
In 2011, Hadid opened up an art gallery in Beverly Hills, HADID Gallery, which features his own artwork, as well as other talented artists.
Recently, the mogul has ventured off into a new artistic endeavor. Hadid has been hand-panting designs onto Hermes Birkin bags. These bags retail around $7,000 – one just auctioned off for $300,000.
After painting a bag, Hadid will donate 100% of the $5,000 fee to a children’s hospital.
Customers interested in a custom design by Hadid, should direct message his daughter, @lanzybear on Instagram.
