"שיכרון עיצובים - אמנות האופנה בישראל 1948-2008 ‎"Israel Fashion Art 1948-2008" FACEBOOK's Book FAN CLUB has now over 900 FANS!!! On this happy occasion here is a great image from the book's chapter devoted to the Israeli use of coins in fashion. The creation is a 1998 design by Silvia Vered Of Shenkar. Photographer: Iddo Lavie. Model: Maya Yeshaayahu.

This modern design along with some other unique creations included in the chapter devoted to the subject of the use of coins in Israeli fashion enables one to realize how far and how contemporary Israeli designers went since the times when coins decorated garments, such as the Yemenite hood  (shown on Ofra Haza) and the Bedouin face chains of coins served as a means of survival for women who had to carry all their property on their own body.

Among the additional coin photos included in the chapter are a Castro-Men tuniqe, a Shai Shalom's one shoulder red-carpet gown, and a Silvia Vered (now called Silvia Versano) coins bra worn under a maxi off-white wool coat.
