Once by Tamara Salem

ONCE by Tamara Salem opened the morning. One-of-a-kind pieces configured around antique lace creations waltzed down the runway to the tune of ‘Let’s do It‘.

Elements from Victorian, Edwardian, and the mid-twentieth century eras show the finest techniques from that time. A few pieces incorporated traditional arab head pieces (Kafiya).

The result of these antique techniques incorporated into a contemporary style is a unique garment that transcends trends. It’s fit for one-of-a-kind collector’s status.

Sasson Kedem mesmerized us in the afternoon with his rich knits, geometric cuts, and voluminous draping get ups set to a moody re-mix of Paul Simon’s ‘Sound of Silence’.

Models sauntered slowly down the runway each in handmade hats by Gala Golanski that transformed them into forrest nymphs (or a Teletubbie!  We must say that the purpose of hats is to cover our ears). The collection was pulled together cohesively with mustard tights with shoes by Ahat Ahat.

We are gonna give it to you straight- this collection is divided between the wearable and the outrageous!

Disney and Make a Wish Foundation’s show was a playful departure, all about fun, fit for the many kids in attendance. Celebrities rocked the runway in a playful style instead of runway models.

Each of the 25 Minnie Mouse inspired dresses was imagined by a different Israeli fashion designer.

Dodo Bar Or blew us away with getups that made us want to run to the desert, take peyote and never come (at least until we are transformed into a Pocahontas goddess) back. We were so enamored, it even made us consider wearing the ‘shower shoe’ trend.

The collection is named 'Arabesque',  but the embellishments inspired by on 9th Century Islamic art were closer to a Pocahontas theme, which is this instance was not a bad thing at all (if Pocahontas wore shower shoes, that is).

Israel is catching up on Global Trends

All in all, Israeli fashion designers are embracing international trends. We saw: capes, overly long sleeves, see-through skirts with long knit sweaters layered over them, leotard “dresses” (look ma, no pants!), shower shoes, bucket bags, and more. We are excited about what’s on tap in our ever increasing fashionable town next autumn!
