The Tel Avivian Womanby Anna Kopito | 07.10.14
In the lead up to Telavivian’s first ever Pop Up Shop we asked six of our favourite Telavivian women to adorn themselves with some of the beautiful pieces from our featured womenswear designers – Aviva Zilberman, CommonRaven, HANNAH and TRES.
Vlada is a model from the Ukraine and has been living in Tel Aviv for seven years. Working as a model for six years she has been styled by the likes of Carolina Israel, Castro, Opticana, Maya Geller and Yaniv Persy. When she isn’t making Israeli design even more beautiful, she paints. Vlada works with various painterly techniques and is planning on exhibiting in the near future, she has high ambitions as an artist.

Dikla is an actress best known for her role as Yael in the Israeli TV series Shovrei Galim. Dikla also dabbles in directing and producing and is in the process of making her own short film which she has even written herself. Being in front of the camera has inspired Dikla to produce her own film – she loves movies and wants to immerse herself and learn about all aspects of the process of filmmaking. In October she will begin her film studies at Tel Aviv University.

Or says that she is working round the clock to perfect the album in a South Tel Aviv studio but we were lucky enough to steal a little of her time to shoot her in this beauty of a dress.
