Our story

Nine years ago, when Kim was a fourth-year textile design student at Shenkar, she and her classmate started their first pop-up store in the Tel Aviv port called "FASH". The store's agenda was to give a platform to young Israeli designers and artists. In its 10 months of operation, FASH had exhibited over 80 designers and became a huge success.

Kim recalls the hardships of having established FASH without support or advice. While operating the pop-up, she discovered a new world of unfamiliar concepts and language.

When FASH closed, Kim realized the necessity of a place that could be the home to students and young adults who have dreams and aspirations in design, but do not have the financial skills and knowledge needed to be successful. A place where one can share and consult exactly as they did in the academic incubator, where one can receive both design and business solutions.
