'Shenkar College'  - Final project - 1988
Photo of myself with part of my final project. At the background of my Silk handpainted fabrics.Taken at the last days of my studies... Just before the exhibition and fashion show.
My collection was consisted of about  16 pieces of fabrics. Divided to 4 groups.
Each fabric was hand painted by myself in size of 90 cm x 300 cm. 100 % pure Silk.
The main group was inspired by tropical atmosphere of plants and fruits - "A flight to Hawaii".
For this group I designed and hand painted Lycra leotards.
All 4 groups were exhibited at the final exhibition. The Hawaiian collection was shown also at the final fashion show, that was taken place at the Cinerama, Tel - aviv.
This collection was exhibited also in 2 more fashion shows.
One of the shows was for the purpose of testing a new AGFA Film, by photographers from all around the country, as a promotion to that film .
My collection was shown also at the Israeli TV, Channel 1 at the news.
Twenty Years After
Myself, The  " RAINBOW ARTIST ". Modeling my final collection 20 years after.

Every minute, every part of a second in LIFE, is a change...
Sometimes we can feel, observe the change, sometimes less...
This whole year for me, is such a change that I truly feel. As the days, month past, I feel it even more, in few dimentions, phases. Each year we grow from the inside... This year for me, I feel the growth more then ever, until now...
This year my 44th birthday is in the sign of  : " 20 years after " .
Finishing my studies at "Shenkar College ", most satisfying time in my life.
Therefore, I decided to start posting in the internet more works done 20 years ago... SO TRUE, for TODAY - Summer 2008.
Eventhough my body as well as ME, changed a lot during the last 20 years, in many ways...
One way is I can pose better today   :-)
SO... For myself to celebrate my 44th birthday, I made these 2 artworks.
I feel myself EXCITED About this collection, still 20 years after.
The freedom of the energy of STRONG VIBRANT Colours... in their movement on the fabric, the scale  -  make me very enthusiastic about it.
Hope to do more with materials from that time of my life, taking it to new directions - To be continued...
