Sara Michal Workeneh


Born 24th January 1994 Israeli

A series of photos by photographer Jackie Nickerson, entitled ‘Terrain’, inspired Sara’s collection. The series documents a typical working day of farmers from Africa, living traditionally and far away from modernism. The photos respect and value the hard physical work, the connection to nature and to its natural resources. From this connection a new aesthetics is created. Sara took elements from these aesthetics and tried to develop them in a new, modern way that would be relevant for today. She chose a refreshing colour palette while combining simple materials used by the farmers such as shade cloth, thick ropes and wooden poles. Most of these materials are uncommon in fashion and were recycled.
