Ophir El-Boher

Ophir El-Boher (b. 1987, Negev Desert, Israel, she/her) uses the platform of fashion design to address phenomena of contemporary issues such as natural resource degradation, hyper-consumerism, and gender equity. She produces unique, future-forward fashion items by deconstructing icons of Western attire. Trousers and shirts are unstitched from their original placement, relocated on the body, and finally transformed into new design patterns. Boher's solo show Patterning opened online April 18, 2020.
