Kornit Fashion Week Tel Aviv ends today after showcasing online collections from 30 designers, including Alon Livne, Victor Bellaish, Shahar Avnet, Dorin Frankfurt, Lara Rosnovsky and Sasson Kedem.
The event kicked off on March 28 with a gala hosted by Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli and Tel Aviv Fashion Week founder Motty Reif.
“A decade ago, I started Tel Aviv Fashion Week in order to promote our local talent internationally. For the past five years, we’ve been a driving force behind inclusivity in fashion, and now we are tackling the industry’s most pressing issue of our time and joining forces with [digital printing leader] Kornit in order to make production more sustainable,” Reif said.
A selection of eight up-and-coming designers were part of the Upcoming Designers Greenhouse showcase by Mifal Ha’Pais, the Israeli lottery. The Greenhouse grant, now in its sixth year, sees each designer receive a grant of 120,000 shekel ($36,000) to design and produce a runway collection.
This year’s recipients were Nofar Duchovny (Tutu.B), Shadi Magleton (SFM), Dennis and Artium Ryabko (Havie mnfct), Anat Friedman, Amit Luzon and Eyal Eliyahu (Adish), Yifat Finkelstein, Ariel Toledano (Maison Ariel Toledano) and Or Eidelman (E218 Studio).
