• You have no idea how much I’ve missed writing about fashion design graduates. And then Yael Gaizler and her Helloa! collection came along.
    Yael, a 2013 graduate of the Shenkar College, took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting to find all this beauty in one massive explosion of color, textures and materials. But I did! In her collection, Yael decided to explore the paradox that exists between local native Hawaiian, Polynesian culture and Western culture. If there is one thing I can’t handle (in a good way) is the way Yael incorporated nature in the most thoughtful way possible. I’m fascinated by all the delicate hand work that is shown throughout each and every garment and I’m pretty sure that it’s only the beginning for this blooming girl. And yes, you should memorize her name. It’s Yael Gaizler. I’m doing it as we speak. Memorizing!
