Carmel Goldental is a Bags & Accessories designer,

based in Paris, France.

Currently studying in the master program of Accessories Design at

IFM- Institut Français de la Mode.

Graduated from the Jewelry and Fashion Department at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, where she majored in jewelry design; she was also an exchange student at ​the Hiko Mizuno College of Jewelry, in Tokyo, Japan.

My artistic research explores the tension which exists in objects,

between the public and the private; between functionality and appearance. ​
 

Form, structure, material, and the way bags and accessories is positioned on the body; every element carries meaning and implies a facet of some kind upon the individual wearing it; a role or function in society, social class, or gender.

Finding these elements, signs and signifiers, is what intrigues me in my design processes; symbols of power, hierarchy and patriarchy trickle down into our culture and fashion.

Motivated by the idea that design has the power to challenge the rigid roles in our society and culture, in my designs I combine the language of luxury aesthetics with the language of utility and functionality.
