Yael Sloma from "The street walker" was kind enough to include me in her lovely blog. This picture is a proof that looks can be deceiving - although I look quite calm, I am actually horribly late for a wedding and busy cursing myself for leaving the house with absolutely no make up. All that while trying to get to the dry cleaners before it closes. That was actually the second time Yael has taken my picture. Every time we meet she stares at me for the first couple of minutes thinking whether I am "picture worthy", I in return stare at her since she dresses just as beautifuly as the people she photographs on her blog. There seem to be a disagreement about my fabulous "Repetto" shoes, so for all those people – it's just shoes calm down!!!

So I went to see the Shenkar 2009 textile graduates show.
Here are some of my favorite works:
Noy’s work is made of partly unraveled polyester, printed by sublimination technique on itself or on other fabric .Noy used an ink gradient color-between blue and purple, and on some fabrics you can see an 18th century French print motif. The project is soft and floaty, but raw and chaotic in the same time.
The project calls “This is not a love song”.
In this project Shevet is building new structural forms by identified the single stitch/loop- the font, transforming the basic form of the unit, and building new fonts for knitting. Building patterns (sentences) of knitting courses and printing the patterns onto textiles.
Here you can see Ido's full portfolio.
Bar has created a fabric that is built from endless prints that harden the fabric at specific areas, which makes the two dimensional structure into three dimensional structure.
Hagit’s inspiration was of a surrealistic forest. The materials she used were wool, kashmir and reeds, all were knitted and weaved together into beautifully made pieces.
Shenkar 2009 graduates show will continue till the 4 August 2009, and there are presented graduates works from all the design departments like fashion, jewelry and so on…highly recommended!!

We snuck behind the scenes to see the designers’ clothes we loved from up close.
Skirt- TopShop dress worn as a skirt
Shoes- Nine West
We just loved Olga Maron’s inspiration – the Russian folk story about snigurachka, a girl made of snow with a heart made of ice, as soon as she fell in love she simply melted and vanished.This cold and well mannered figure became a role model for many little girls in Russia. And so, from girls who had dreams about love, weddings and children, grew a nation filled with cold and serious career women.The collection expresses this struggle between the mind and the heart.
