This week marked Israel's first fashion week in Tel Aviv in 30 years. Prominent Israeli designers, as well as newcomers to Israel's fashion scene, showed their designs alongside Italian fashion veteran Roberto Cavalli's Spring 2012 collection.
Tel Aviv Fashion Week featured about 20 shows and drew the attention of dozens of international fashion journalists. Israeli designers embraced by the international media include Dorit Bar Or and Tamar Primak.
The event was supported in part by the Ministry of Tourism, the Foreign Ministry and local businesses, to show the world a slice of Israel's vibrant cultural life.
