The fashion design department of Shenkar College showcased the work of its latest graduate class in an amazing catwalk show in Tel Aviv, when 40 students gave us a look at their work before they head off into the fashion world to begin their careers.
Showing that life goes on here regardless of the situation, it was a great night with some definite names to look out for in the future.
The show opened with Golan Taub and his eye-catching collection that defined what having “fun with fashion” really is. It was a bright start to the show with an equally perfect color palette, a definite highlight of the night for me.
Einav Dalva went down a different route with a collection that included kidswear and would fit right in at most shops – the neutral color palette is summer ready and kid friendly from the look of the excited child models.
After womenswear and kidswear came the menswear, Donna Weinberg’s collection was menswear with a modern twist and splash of color. The pieces would work well as separates (as they did on the catwalk), but it would take a fashion-forward male to wear them.
Dor Dov Tulchinsky was another highlight, personally, I loved the purples and yellows and how I see pieces that can fit into everyday life – well, on the occasions you want the outfit you planned to look effortless.
Gil Maayan showed off a girly collection which was a quirky treat that brightened up the catwalk.
By looking at the offerings of Shenkars latest class, it’s clear to see that the designers who take risks and inject a bit of personality into their work are the ones whose collections stand out. You can see the talent and creativity here – these graduates are going to go far.
