Jaffa Port Gallery presents “Transforms” – a series of weekend events exploring the relationship between fashion, design and art. Every weekend, for four consecutive weeks, 10 different designers will display their creations that will be available for sale at the gallery. The design concept of each event has its own unique DNA. The fifth weekend event will summarize the “Transforms” series with a general exhibition that will uncover the ONE OF works created by the designers participating in the project.

The exhibition at the gallery will be launched with a festive event dedicated to the fundraising on behalf of the Megemeria School, operated by YEDID – the Association for Community Empowerment.  The Megemeria School of Jewellery was opened by Yvel founders Isaac and Orna Levy in 2010.
