”Work It” is designer Chaya Strano @haya.hinda.strano ( Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Tel Aviv, Israel) Graduate Collection. Starring model Omri Regev @omri_regev at Brick Management @brickmodels with styling by the designer under the Artistic Direction of Dor Sharon @dor_sharon1.
The designer describes the collection:
“Work It” is a collection inspired by the transformation of commodity food sacks and leftover fabrics into beautiful garments. Originally inspired by my Great-Grandmother sewing affordable clothing out of food sacks for African children in South Africa, the journey has taken me through the Japanese Boro and Sashiko, quilting techniques, and the art exhibitions of Ibrahim Mahama, who creates spectacular art exhibitions out of coco and coal sacks combined with colorful African materials. The collection is a combination of the above – printed typography on food sacks, African colorful materials and Japanese Sashiko stitching elements.
