FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising earlier this year seeking a Graphic Design student to develop a design that would be reproduced on a silk scarf and sent as a gift to their donors. Lisa Hoffman, the Graphic Design Department Coordinator of FIDM’s San Francisco campus, immediately thought of  Tovah who had completed her B.F.A. at FIT prior to attending FIDM. “Tovah was happy to take on the challenge and created this beautiful design that The Fistulla Foundation is absolutely thrilled with,” says Hoffman.

Tovah developed the Dignity Scarf design, which was sent to donors in celebration of Mother’s Day while juggling her classes at FIDM and an internship,.

“The final result is a stunning piece of work,” says Melissa Johnson, Director of Development for The Fistula Foundation. “To thank our donors, these scarves are being shipped out right now to donors living all over the world. Their donations will be helping many women in developing countries suffering from the childbirth injury obstetric fistula.”
