Meet Our Designers: Northern Starby Anna Kopito | 17.11.14
Nadav Rosenberg has an innovative and gorgeous approach to fabric. Gone are the days of simply shaping a fabric into a garment – with his collection Northern Star, Nadav weaves and manipulates the very fabrics he uses to create masterful and unique pieces for women. A graduate of Shenkar College of design and engineering, Nadav has worked on brands that have shown in London Fashion Week. Now developing his own label Nadav is making an impression. Taking inspiration from the strong silhouettes of the 60s and 80s, Northern Star adds a touch of the dramatic to Israeli fashion.
