"Israel Fashion Art 1948-2008" in Keren Ben-Horin's FIT's post.

Hi, today I would like to thank Keren Ben-Horin, a Shenkar graduate, now at  New York's F.I.T about an interview she conducted with me which she posted today at  the Fashion Institute of Technology's (FIT) of New York's Forum Blog called "On Pins and Needles". The blog is written by
Inspired by the album-book "Israel Fashion Art 1948-2008"
"שיכרון עיצובים - אמנות האופנה בישראל 1948-2008" Keren Ben-Horin decided to conduct this interview which she posted there today about Israeli fashion then and now. The post includes several photos from the book: the book's cover image (taken by Miri Davidowits) of a Yaacov Hapaz gown, a Maskit creation by Fini Leitersdorf (taken by Peter Hertsog) , a Rozi Ben-Yossef kafia-fabric design (taken by Ben Lam) , a Yaron minkowski's golden hat-mask (taken by Gadi Dagon), the following Lea Gottlieb for Gottex design (taken by Ben Lam), and Bezalel's Mor Hemed's sculptural-futuristic creation (taken by Dafna Grossman).
 In her post Keren Ben-Horin states:
Ms. Bat-Yaar’s book was not translated to English yet, but you can find all about it in her  blog:
 It is a huge contribution to the very limited sources of the history of Israeli fashion and fashion design.

 It's title is:

From Rags to Riches- Israeli fashion rediscovered

And a few words about Keren Ben-Horin herself:
 Keren Ben-Horin has a B.Des in Fashion Design from Shenkar College of Engineering & Design in Israel. Four years ago she moved to New York to work in the fashion industry and since then she has tried to absorb everything the city has to offer when it comes to fashion and style. She was always passionate about the academic aspects of fashion and so found a natural place in the Fashion and Textiles: History, theory and Museum Practice program at FIT. She is especially interested in 20th century fashion and the life and work of the great designers of our time. She is currently studying the work of Israeli designer Lea Gottlieb and the swimwear house she founded, Gottex.
