"שיכרון עיצובים - אמנות האופנה בישראל 1948-2008"
would be published overseas. This would bring the creative and original aspects of Israeli fashion design to the attention of design, art, esthetics, and culture lovers everywhere. Also, it would enrich the variety of albums about Israel beyond books about Jerusalem and would give people overseas another view of Israel and its culture not ordinarily seen on TV and in the News.
Therefore I am very happy and gratefull whenever the book is mentioned in articles outside of Israel. Up to now overseas articles about the book appeared in Yuli Ziv's New York's "My It Things" web magazine @http://myitthings.com/Yuli/Post/fashion/It-Thing/It-Book:--Israel-s-Fashion-Art---1948-2008--by-Nurit-Bat-Yaar./593252010130272281.htm
Also in New York's Fashion Institue of Technology's blog "On Pins and Needles" in an article by Keren Ben-Horin's @http://pinsndls.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/from-rags-to-riches-israeli-fashion-rediscovered/
About these two book coverages I reported here previously.
Last week another article was published overseas. This time by Sima Borkowsky in the Swiss magazine "Tachles". Sima interviewed me about Israeli fashion using the above photos from the book. As the author of "Israel Fashion Art 1948-2008" and the former fashion editor ( for several decades) of "Yedioth Ahronoth" I was in a position to tell her about the very unique beginning of Israel's fashion originating in Rut Dayan's "Maskit" as well as about the great success of Israeli fashion designers all over the world, and the leading fashion icons, Jacquline Kennedy, Princess Diana, Katherine Hepborn and many others who wore Israeli designed creations.
Thank-you Sima. I appreciate it very much.
