Made By Lilamist

Remember when I was in love with that white textured mini dress from the Lilamist collection? I named it one of my 2010 Israeli Fashion Obsessions.  Well, in fact, I’ve become enamored with the entire Lilamist line.  Lilach Elgrabi and her team has created a slew of silky, satin, and ruffled numbers that target the feminine beauty who wants to be dressed up and comfortable at the same time in trendy textures and patterns.

What Does Israeli Fashion Mean To You?

As you’ve all noticed, I’ve been extremely, extremely busy these past two months. Between writing fashion and lifestyle articles for Time Out Israel (English Edition), working on new online projects with Fashion TV, the mega international fashion broadcasting channel which has a branch in Israel, and doing a slew of other mini freelance projects, things have been quite crazy around here!!

Did I mention that I also have a full time job and I’m moving this week? Yea, that.

An Israeli Shoe Dilemma (And The Problem With Buying Shoes in Israel)

I’m in the North this weekend and upon a trip to the local mall (The Kiriyon, it’s called, since all the suburbs in the area are Kiriyot…Kiriyat Motzkin, Kiriyat Bialik, etc.), I came across these beauties and had to add them to my collection.

What Fashion Trends Could Americans Take From Israelis?

In my last post on what fashion trends could Israelis take from Americans, I wrote that I usually see trends happen in Israel first.  Well, this is usually true when it comes to Euro fashion.  However, as you noticed in my last post I wrote about what Israelis could learn from Americans. Well, there are quite a number of fashion trends and tips that Americans could and should take from Israelis, who look to Euro fashion capitals like Paris and Milan for inspiration more so than their US ally.

Mmmmm…Freshmeat!

I know what you’re thinking. This post is going to be all about a brand new website featuring the hottest and most popular Israeli models around. Right? WRONG!

Freshmeat is actually the very clever name of a brand new fashion website created by Shenkar College of Engineering and Design students in order to feature those Israeli indie fashion designers that need and deserve the recognition of the Israeli community for their perseverance and rising talent. Thought you knew all the indie designers in Israel? You don’t! After perusing the cool site, and talking to one of its creators, a Shenkar student named Gal, I learned Freshmeat allows each of its designers to include a profile as well as his or her own e-boutique to sell his wares.

“Why Jerusalem’s American Apparel Does It For Me”

Author: Beverley Paris

On my continuing search for style in the holy city I decided it was time descend on American Apparel to check out what’s new. I know, it’s not exactly an Israeli brand but I thought a reasonable compromise as it’s my favorite place to shop in Jerusalem and I believe it’s owned by a Jew.   I was wearing my oldest, most faded pair of skinny jeans and an American Apparel tunic dress (if you’re going shopping somewhere I find it helpful if you wear an appropriate piece from the brand in question.  You don’t want to overdo it but you want to show respect), my favorite Anthropolgie ethnic scarf and of course my tsumori chisato for She Umera eye bling.

Lee Cooper Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Show

Like Castro, Lee Cooper is a well-known retail brand in Israel, but with a slighty younger, much more urban punk appeal.  Their clothes include tons of denim and items like graffiti-emblazoned tees, punchy neon tech vests, jackets in bold and rainbow colors, and tie-dye splattered shoes.

Their Spring/Summer 2010 Collection, however, appeared to be much more low key.  Yet, the presentation was superb, says Haaretz fashion writer Hilla Ohayon, who caught their Lee Cooper Spring/Summer 2010 fashion show this month.  Unlike the typical one model at a time down the runway walk, each one sashayed quickly one after the other, then posed in a tight knit group.
