Noa Raviv is a fashion designer, working in the intersection of fashion, art and technology. Noa is originally from Tel Aviv, but currently based in NYC.
For her first collection entitled Hard Copy, Noa created garments inspired by computer glitches and digital errors. This collection immediately got press recognition and was presented in exhibitions around the world including the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Manus x Machina at Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Hard Copy Collection
Noa has been invited to present in museums, universities and art institutions around the world and her work has been featured internationally on websites and magazines such as Vogue Japan, Vogue Italy, Vogue UK, Marie Claire.
In 2016 she was chosen to be included in the prestigious list of Forbes 30under30 and was also selected by Vogue as one of the 16 best young designers of the year.
Noa Raviv is fascinated by the tension between harmony and chaos, tradition and innovation, sensitively seeking for the perfect balance. Her collections are influenced by the dichotomy of the handmade and machine-made and often combine traditional handcraft such as sewing, pleating and beading with innovative technologies like 3D printing, laser cutting and digital fabric printing.
In her work Noa wishes to turn the imperfect, faulty and the random into poetical pieces.
For her Fall 17 collection, ‘NON_PLACE’ Noa Raviv chooses to focus on the concept of non-places and their digital evolutions. Places that have no real identity or history, places where we do not live in; places in which we remain anonymous and lonely. Marc Augé coined the phrase “non-place” (mid 90’) to refer to anthropological spaces of transience that do not hold enough significance to be regarded as “places”.
‘NON_PLACE’ will be first shown at Paris Fashion Week from 28th of February to the 8th of March 2017.
Watch this space – we’ll show you images of the collection on here soon.
