After tha, he was the “outstanding winner” at the International Youth Designer Competition in China in 2016.
This is part of the “Monumental Memories” collection.

What professionals love in him is his experts eye for detail. Designing tailor-made menswear, he creates the perfect fit that makes men look elegant and stylish at the same time.
On the 15th of July, he did not disappoint. The catwalk was like going on a trip to a peaceful place with the light green and the trees. The music was also perfect to put everyone in the same mood. The very first model was carrying a gigantic bouquet of flowers, a great way to start the show. The rest of the collection was really beautiful. He used dull colours and comfortable fabrics. Boaz is definitively on the path to compete with high-end brands.
