Naama Doktofsky grew up in Jerusalem, Israel, where she developed a keen eye for texture, color and the juxtaposition of old and new. The combining of these attributes are ever present throughout the Middle East and are used as inspiration for her designs and illustrations. She is an adjunct professor at Moore and the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), where she teaches fashion art, collection development and portfolio. Additionally, she is a design consultant for several contemporary RTW womenswear brands. Doktofsky holds a BFA from FIT, and after graduation, she spent more than a decade working as a designer in New York City. Her most recent role was that of design director for Shoshanna, where her designs were featured on the pages of Vogue, WWD, Elle, Bazaar and Glamour, and worn by notable celebrities. She has been featured in two fashion design books, Emerging Fashion Designers 3, by Sally Congdon-Martin, and The Fashion Designer’s Sketchbook, by Sharon Rothman.
