"שיכרון עיצובים - אמנות האופנה בישראל"
received a few days ago from the Chief Curator of Ramat-Gan's Museum of Israeli Art, Meir Ahronson (See previous post). But this doesn't lessen my enjoyment from other appreciative responses the book gets.
Yesterday, I discovered one such article published by Simona "an American in Israel" in her blog "Fashion Israel" (see link above). In her post devoted to the country's 62nd Independence Day, Simona writes: "For a really great take on Israeli Fashion from the beginning of the creation of the state, check out Nurit Bat-Yaar's album book Israel Fashion Art 1948-2008....Even if you can't read Hebrew, its definitely an impressive look at the shaping of a new and beautiful country through fashion...it does have an English introduction... In any case a picture is worth a thousand words in fashion!
Rightfully so, Yuli Ziv of the site My It Things, proudly calls it Israel fashion bible!......you must read Yuli's interview with the "First Lady of Israeli fashion" published this past March. It gives you all true insight into the world of Israeli fashion then and now."
In the Ben Lam photo above (featured in Yuli Ziv's article) is a Lea Gottlieb design from 1976 for "Gottex" from the book's chapter on bathing suits: "Israel Miss World of Beachwear Fashion."
Thanks so much, Simona.
