Dorin Frankfurt and The Factory
Kianne is wearing a skirt and blouse by Dorin Frankfurt.
Dorin Frankfurt is one of the leading fashion designers in Israel. Her S/S 2012 show during Tel Aviv Fashion Week, made me realize that she was one of few that were designing clothes for the Israeli environment. Most of the other designers during the fashion week probably planned to dress Europeans in the heavy fabrics and dark colors. But Dorin Frankfurt understands the woman under the Israeli sunlight, and created a light collection in pastels and linen.
I visited Dorin and her daughter Kianne in her office and factory in Tel Aviv a couple of days ago. We talked about designers from the 80s that disappeared, the picture I took of the long skirt during the show and her latest collection that was inspired by the Sabra flower.
