My Name Is Joya And I Am from Israel
Clothing ensembles from textile materials, designed in the context of Israeli society and culture.
“My name is Joya and I am from Israel”, a seemingly simple sentence becomes an opening for multiple questions concerning the complexity of Israeli society and culture, and about the role of identity and belonging in our world. In this project, an optimistic appearance is designed, a kind of theatre of identities in the context of the three monotheistic religions in Israel. The attempt to search for an optimistic interpretation for a divided society is embodied in designing a visual rhythm and a color palette common to numerous religions around the world.
I am 27, born and raised in Tel Aviv and am a textile designer specializing in knitwear. What interests me in the design field is textiles for fashion.
