“This photo series was taken in my personal space, where I live and work as a fashion designer, in my home studio. Clients come to me, especially grooms. Working with grooms always inspires me. I designed a rose print for the groom’s outfit, and from that, a capsule collection of black and white T-shirts and tank tops was born. I drew a poetic print of one rose, placed in the back or the chest’s centre.”
Eliran Nargassi, born in 1985, is a Menswear Fashion Designer based in Tel Aviv. Graduate of class 2012 from Shenkar – College of Engineering and Design. Upon Graduation, Nargassi briefly worked for Several Israeli-based commercial Brands but shortly after, realizing the limits of Designing for the commercial fashion industry, the conception of starting his own brand has begun.
The label Eliran Nargassi was established at the beginning of 2013, taking an active part in the renaissance of the Menswear fashion scene in Nargassi’s homeland, catering for the modern individual who’s on the search for innovative fashion with a personal touch and attention to detail. Clean-cut & minimalistic design blended in with contrasts and graphic cuts & geometrical forms, the label’s lines are highly wearable and functional keeping the commercial value a secondary feature.
Nargassi’s inspiration derives from his personal biography & inner world, born to a Jewish Orthodox family but leading a secular lifestyle, drawn to the conflicts & tension between religion & secularism, issues of gender and its interpretation.
