Hi, Today I would like to share with you the first TV interview about the "ISRAEL FASHION ART 1948-2008"album-book.
"שיכרון עיצובים - אמנות האופנה בישראל"
It was screened on TV Channel 2's morning show hosted by TV star Moshe Datz on March 1, 2010,
shortly after the book came out. Datz was very enthusiastic introducing the book as an amazing encyclopedia. Although the interview began with a discussion about Maskit, the first uniquely Israeli fashion house, the first pictures displayed in the program were of my early modeling days, in an orange grove in preparation for a popular orange-picking postcard, modeling Elanit Knits outfit, and a calendar for a color manufacturing company.
Subsequently, some of the book's photos were displayed including a Fini Leitersdorf for Maskit gown inspired by a Yohanan Simon painting, a Vitzo-Haifa creation, a Leah Gottlieb for Gottex beachwear set, a Rozi Ben-Yosef kefeya inspired design, and a Yaron Minkowski Eurovision dress made out of Bucharian embroidered tablecloth, which Orna Datz performed in. Yoav Meir was sitting beside me in the studio during the interview. He was a Project Runway participant who now has his own TV program "Urban Fashion."
