Exclusive Unique Historical Photos of Gideon Oberson in "Israel Fashion Art 1948-2008"

Hi, The other day quite by chance I came across a very unique post about
"שיכרון עיצובים אמנות האופנה בישראל 1948-2008"
"Israel Fashion Art - 1948-2008"
It appears in a fashion blog called "The Reclamationist" and it includes no less than 22 visuals (!!!) from my album-book, among them several which I had stylized and produced for "Yedioth Ahronoth" during the years I was the newspaper's fashion editor.

One of the stars of that post is haute-couture and master-swimwear designer Gideon Oberson who is Israel leading high-fashion creator. Oberson, referred as "the king"in that blog, is represented in it by four "Israel Fashion Art 1948-2008" unique and exclusive photos.

The first is a unique beach-wear creation which juxtaposes a very daring approach with a biblical style modesty in the form of a zippered, hooded top. This design-masterpiece was created on the occasion of Israel 40th anniversary, 22 years ago. It was taken by Menahem Oz and stylized by me for "Yedioth Ahronoth". It is featured in the book in the chapter "Israel - Miss World of the beachwear fashion."

The second photo (from the chapter devoted to creative pants) is a Peter Hertzog visual taken in 1969. It too is a sort of an East meets West creation in which harem pants are slashed and are
matched with a daring back decoltage.

The third picture is an abstract-art inspired gown from the chapter "The Love Story of Art & Fashion." It was taken by Israel Bonds in 1973 for its coast-to-coast fashion shows in the U.S.

Last but not least is the 1963 Oberson gown incorporating Yemenite filigren jewelry, also manifesting an East meets West approach. The image was taken by Gavra Mandil, and it is featured in the book in the chapter about bejeweled designs.
