Dana Cohen, a Fashion Designer who graduated from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in 2015 with excellence, is driven to make a positive impact on society, by creating sustainable and beautiful garments that last.
Worn Again, her first award - winning collection, introduced an innovative environment-friendly approach to textile manufacturing. Dana developed a procedure in which discarded knits are shredded into fibers that are then felted into new recycled textiles.
The result is a spectacular recycled textile in a wide variety of unique colors and patterns, which are then integrated with new knits. The textiles are soft to touch.
City Growth, her second award - winning collection was launched on the runway of Tel Aviv Fashion Week in March 2018 and on the runway of Vietnam International Fashion Week in April 2018.
The collection was part of a "fashion statements" exhibition in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem in 2019.
A limited edition of the City Growth collection is now for sale.
Dana's designs are featured globally in top magazines.
