About the Designer
Schooled in Miriam College in Tel Aviv, Yifat draws her inspiration from her years of travels, her love of nature, geometric shapes and from the beauty and strength of the women around her. As a mother of two, a designer, and a career woman, Yifat recognizes the demands of the modern woman’s lifestyle. She believes women don’t have to suffer to look fabulous, and designs clothes that are easy to wear, easy to pair and easy to care for. It is this marriage between comfort and style that makes Yifat Jovani designs’ unique, and adds to their growing popularity and increased media attention. All Yifat’s creations are locally produced and manufactured in Vancouver.

Live Painting Featuring Jace Kim
Winner of February Park’s Edge Paint OFF we welcome Jace Junggyu Kim to paint live at the GALA event. The artwork created will also be in the Live Auction!

Jace Kim is a Canadian painter currently based in Vancouver, BC. He was born and raised in Korea where he was highly influenced by comic book art until the age of 15. He graduated Emily Carr University of Art and Design with a bachelor’s degree in Media art (animation) with the passion of animator. He worked in various game and motion graphic companies as a digital artist but he made a drastic transition to become a traditional painter.
