Repost from my fiancé post.
Dylan Paris said about the Gindi Tlv fashion week:
This week I had the chance to spend my time, at one of the most important fashion event of the Israeli industry, the Gindi Fashion Week. Yes, there is a Fashion Week here in Tel Aviv and a lot of talented designers. The Fashion Industry here in Israel is growing day by day and I am so happy to see this small country making so huge things each year.
Saying the true, I wait a little bit before I started to write my post about the Tel-Aviv fashion week, I wanted to see what the Israeli press has to say about the event. And I get so disappointed about some posts that I’ve read during the last days.
Firstly It’s important to say as a Blogger I am more than open to critics and I think that real critics can build and let you evolve and this is one of the first things I learned while studying in Shenkar.
Okey, I must agree Tel Aviv is not Paris or Milan, and everything was not perfect, ?? So What .?
I am so disappointed that the Israeli press is just talking about the Gindi placement and the interest of Gindi and not about the fact there is a real Fashion Industry here… an amazing one.
During the week we had the chance to discover how much-talented designers the country has to introduce to the world. During this week we discovered that our industry has a real fashion producer, I believe one of the best in the world Motty Reif that direct all that stuff during all week and made it so so professionally, This guy is ready to everything to make discovered our local talents to the world. But we also have really professional press agencies sometimes even more professional that Internationals one, they succeed to bring more than 100 International medias from all over the world to the event and it’s amazing. Our Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists that working for International big names such as Mac and Loreal that take part in the event. But also our amazing Models Agencies that discovering amazing talents each day, that working today all over the world for the biggest fashion weeks, yes all the Israelis models that I have the chance to meet each time all over the world, it’s such a pride for me!
Our Fashion Industry in Tel Aviv is strong, our Fashion Industry succeed to get by without any help from the state or the help of committee such as “La Federation Francaise de la couture”.
As a future fashion designer that studying in one of the most impressive Fashion School of the World here in Tel Aviv. I am so happy to have the chance to be a part of an industry that never big up for her talents and I am thinking that is the most important things that I am taking with me from this Fashion Week.
I basically opened this blog six years ago and I didn’t know exactly why I just wanted to be a part of the Fashion world and to learn. Today this platform is a bit more than just a fashion blog is my showcase , a part of my life that I am sharing with you every day and I believe that it’s important for me not to just talking about how the shows was amazing but also about what I am really thinking of all what going on around that.
Finally, And the most important in my eyes, I had the chance to participate in a big parts of the shows during the week.
I was so happy to discovered about the story of Gottex and Lea Goltlieb , as a new immigrant here in Israel I was pretty amazed to discovered that our Fashion Industry start a long before and really enjoyed the show.
I also really expected the Ariel Toledano & Dror Kontento show and was amazed by the finesse and lightness worthy of the big international house.
Of course, Shenkar Fashion Show, was so cool, my favorite. I am so so proud to be a part of this school, to learn and develop my creativity in that way, the show was amazing, I knew each outfit each project and how much each student work for it, and Shahaf the PR is one of the best.
I also had the chance to be a part of the Nouveau Riche Dog by Maoz Dahan show, as a men blogger, its made me so happy to see that the Fashion Industry here is also so developed for Menswear, as well about Shai Shalom … both shows was really nice.
I also really liked the Idan Larous show, Trend Alert: Pyjamas style is back to town this summer just so you know.
About Galia Lahav is basically one of my favorite bridal designer , I was so proud to discover a first couture show off her during the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris few month ago, and expected to see the same one here in Tel Aviv but she surprised all the audience with an other new collection full of sequins and disco vibes without even one wedding dress, I was amazed. An Israeli designer able to produce few collections and bridal in the same season as other big house like Chanel makes me so proud.
Finally, Tovale Final show was so so nice, as french being able to discover the fashion history of my new country made me so happy and to see the evolution during the year is even better. Thank you for this retrospective show that learns me a lot about Fashion here.
I am not going to write a long Final to this post but I just want to say …
THERE IS A FASHION INDUSTRY HERE IN TEL AVIV.
