last night i had the pleasure of attending fashion gala tlv by

dor chadashan event that brought the talent of ten young

israeli fashion designers to the “fashion capital of the world”-

new york.

the night began with kosher cocktails and hors d’oeuvres [which

were delicious and plentiful] in a vip bar area.  several pairs

of shoes by designer kobi levi were displayed in glass light

boxes for guests to view up close.  

after one drink and several sushi rolls later, i headed past

dark curtains to view the main event–a runway show of five

fashion designers paired with an accessory designer of their

choice.  the gif i made [that took me way longer than it should

have] shows some of my favorite looks from the designers.  

i was particularly drawn to the common raven collection.  cohen’s 

use of cutouts appealed to my taste [i did wear my donna mizani

cutout dress to the event].  they were perfectly tasteful and

added the right amount of edge to her tailored pieces.  

tamar primak’s ballsy move to throw a sheer shirt on the runway

sans bra impressed me immensely and made me respect her not only

as a designer, but as an artist.  

the night ended with baked by melissa cupcakes [hundreds of them] 

and a night spent with newly made friends.  thank you tamar simon

and jonathan frenkel for letting me attend this event.  to learn
