Tel Aviv has much more fashion to offer then I ever realized!
For an American fashion aficionado, this is a big deal.
I’m hearing about more fashion news and events going on then ever before. Sometimes three or four in one weekend.
For an American who’s just starting her life here, this is a big deal. I’m about to break the bank, if you know what I mean. I’m running out of money!
I’m starting a new column here highlighting my favorite stories and sales of the week.
I’m hoping to put this up every Thursday or Friday, before our short weekend really begins!
Here’s what I’ve lusted after so far…
*The winter collection has launched at Cafe Bizarre! While I missed the 10% discount sale on Friday from 10 to 3pm, I’m still heading back to see the newest pieces from Vivienne Westwood, Inbal Gvili, The Hellers, and more! 150 Ben Yehuda
*At Ronen Chen, a gift of your choice with every skirt, shirt, or pants purchase. At every Ronen Chen chain throughout the country! Thursday-Saturday.
*Seasonal Fashion Sale. 30-70% discount on local and international brands including: The Brunch, Wrangler, Jiffa, Gazith, Lee Cooper, Gap and more. Entrance: 15nis. Thursday, 16:00-24:00; Friday, 10:00-19:00; Saturday: 10:00-24:00. Ganei Hatarucha, Rokach, Tel Aviv.

*Oldie, but a goodie. Back in October, Ynet celebrated 100 years of fashion with article remember how Israelis dressed 50 years ago and featured designers like Gideon Oberson and commentary from fashion experts. http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-3793013,00.
*“You have to be a little bit crazy to do haute couture,” says Morin Woolf, who believes many Israelis don’t have the patience to commit to the craft. Her evening gowns range from 900nis to 8,000nis, with bridal gowns from 8,500nis to 20,000nis. 187 Ben-Yehuda, Tel Aviv. http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1258027275295&pagename=JPost/JPArticle/ShowFull
This is just a start and with a late entrance…but hopefully, I’ll keep finding more and more events, sales, and intriguing fashion news every week and it can only get better from here.
