Favourite TLV Fashion Week Momentsby Roza Sinaysky | 29.03.17
You might have heard about the biggest buzz of this season—yes, Tel Aviv Fashion Week just happened! Although Telavivian’s fashion editor, Roza Sinaysky was not there due to her trip to Lisbon Fashion Week, Sinaysky still made it to the final day, and boy it was amazing! In case you missed it she is here to give us recap of some of her favourite moments of the week.
In support of the local designers, we are pleasantly surprised by the amount of new ideas & talents found during this week.
Starting with Karen Wolf, the Jewelry designer respected and loved by many, Karen is known for her vintage inspired bridal jewelry and headpieces. This time, however, she broke her ‘sweet and lady like’ stigma and presented a collection that was edgy, poetic, elegant and full of emotion. The models were place in milk baths wearing nothing but white gowns and jewelry—the outstanding styling and artistic direction came from super talented stylist, Shalev Lavan.
Part of this group of young designers was Tres TLV, who presented a cool and sophisticated collection in which every single piece is an ideal piece to wear in the Tel Avivian summer (we predict that the T-shirt will be sold out as soon as it hits the stores).
Sabina Musayev presented a beautiful collection, mixing rock chic elements like cut off jeans and black denim jackets with some floaty ethnic embroidered dresses—both of which we are going to try on asap!
A first timer at TLV fashion week was one of Tel Aviv’s favorite local brands, Portay Studio. The collection was everything we wanted to see in a summer collection and more—feminine cuts, sexy attitude, modern fabrics and perfectly styled accessories. We can’t wait to wear select pieces from this collection!
As always, the students from Shenkar School of Design did not disappoint, with extraordinary designs, cutting edge concepts and mind blowing garments, this was by far one of the most innovative moments this week.
Local fashion darling Idan Laros AKA Lucky Laros presented a grungy collection filled with (for your comfort) plaid PJs with a touch of sporty elements and a lot of slick silk logo infused suits. We’ll take them all, please!
Last but definitely not least, a show that caught our attention was Maskit, the historical and probably most successful brand ever to export from Israel. Yes, it was in the 60s and 70s, but that record of international success, and Maskit’s history will forever be engrained in every Israeli fashion lover’s heart. This collection was an interpretation to the brand’s iconic cuts—the knitted zigzag dress, the golden embroidery and the pure silk caftan pants suit were such a highlight at the show.
