Hi, Today I would like to share with you guys the happy announcement made last week by Israel's Ministry of Culture headed by Ms. Limor Livnat regarding its Art and Design Awards for 2010. Among the five recipients of the award in the design category is Nadav Shalev - who was "Israel's Fashion Art - 1948-2008" (Resling 2010) graphic designer.
Nadav concentrates on designing mostly art and design books and catalogs for museums' exhibitions and for Shenkar college. But his latest largest project was my 440 pages album-book which includes over 400 color images. Congratulations Nadav!!!

Last week I was interviewed by Liri Halperin of "Ahbar Ha-Ir" weekly magazine about
the state of young Tel-Aviv fashion designers. To her question what is the future holding for them, I replied that in view of the fierce competition from the international chains which opened branches in Israel and the import of designer's fashion to high-end boutiques, they need to take more risk and get out of their conch of "safe" neutral colors. I also suggested that they try to fuse practicality with a touch of fantasy.
