|"Israel Fashion Art - 1948-2008" among ten fashion books recommended by Signon on June 1, 2011|
Hi, Yesterday a very pleasant surprise awaited me at "Signon" the lifestyle weekly magazine of "Maariv"'s daily newspaper. On the occasion of the coming-up Book Fair - Michal Israeli made up a list of the ten recommended fashion books and album-books. In the article's sub-title she wrote: "We chose ten fashion books that would provide you with the perfect style experience".
"Israel Fashion Art - 1948-2008" (Resling) was mentioned next to nine imported books such as Avedon Fashion 1944-2000 by Carol Squiers (Abrams), Vogue Model: The Face of Fashion by Robin Derrick & Robin Muir (Little), Fashion by Charlotte Seeling (Hf Ullmann), The Sartorialist by Scott Schuman (Penguin) etc.
In her item about "Israel Fashion Art - 1948-2008" "שיכרון עיצובים - אמנות האופנה בישראל" Michal wrote: "In this lavish book Nurit Bat-Yaar offers an historical viewpoint about Israeli Fashion which focuses not only on the aesthetic aspects but on social and cultural aspects as well. In addition to the marvelous and nostalgic photos which Bat-Yaar collected and saved from extinction and in addition to text which discusses the cultural role Israeli Fashion's played - the book is also spiced with true behind the scenes stories of the fashion industry."
The review was accompanied by a picture of the album-book's cover featuring a photo by Miri Davidovits of a Jacob Harpaz gown modeled by Adaya Meirtcek.
Thank you very much dear Michal Israeli.
