Dana Harel, Rising Bridal Designer
by: GABRIELLE ABRAHAM
Although Dana Harel is a relatively new wedding-dress designer, she is quickly building a reputation as one of the world’s up-and-coming bridal designers, and one of Israel’s top designers today. Dana has had the privilege of dressing various international celebrity clientele including: supermodel Bar Rafeli, world-renowned director Quentin Tarantino’s fiancée Daniella Pick and ‘Sakara Life’ owner Whitney Tingle. More recently, she has been featured in Vogue Paris and nominated as ‘fashion designer of the year’ by Israel’s leading lifestyle magazine ‘You’.
On How She Got Started
Dana Harel has always been captivated by the fashion world and decided to give fashion a shot by enrolling at Israel’s leading art and design school ‘Shenkar’, where she completely fell in love with designing clothes, evening gowns and wedding dresses. After completing her studies, she landed a dream job as the assistant to fashion designer Lilach Elgrably, one of Israel’s most acclaimed fashion designers. She worked there for about a year and a half before opening her own bridal-wear label – known today as Dana Harel Design.
