Naama Doktofsky is a New York based Fashion Designer and Illustrator. She is the current Design Director for SHOSHANNA, an upscale ready-to-wear womenswear line.
Born and raised in Israel, Naama grew up in Jerusalem 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. In her role with SHOSHANNA, Naama has seen her designs grace the pages of VOGUE, WWD, ELLE, BAZAAR, GLAMOUR, and worn by bloggers and celebrities, including Reese Witherspoon, Kelly Ripa, Mindy Kaling, Christina Hendricks, Sacha Obama and others.
Naama was featured in Sally Congdon-Martin's book Emerging Fashion Designers 3, and The Fashion Designer's Sketchbook by Sharon Rothman. In 2014 and 2015, she served as Design Critic & Mentor for graduating students of FIT's (Fashion Institute of Technology) Fashion Design program. In 2018, broadening her reach as an illustrator, Naama illustrated Lo Shomrim be'beten, a Hebrew book for new parents.
Naama graduated summa cum laude from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) with a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and two children.
