Under Construction

BY ELIRAN ASHRAF
@ VOL 16 ON MAR 01, 2018

The inspiration of my work came as I went full circle with my "textile heritage", watching my yemenite grandmother wearing her authentic clothing pieces in modern day Israel. 
These yemenite clothing pieces inspired by the local architecture have a strong sense of time and place. In my creation and research I am trying to express a sense of roots in a world with no boundaries. UNDER/CONSTRUCTION is a fashion brand inspired by the mix between urban and tribal elements.
