Tel Aviv: Gindi Tel Aviv Fashion Week, taking place between January 29 – February 1, 2017, will be opening this year’s season of Fashion Weeks worldwide and present again a wide range of both, established and upcoming Israeli fashion designers to an international audience.
Founded in 2011 by Motty Reif, a visionary and chief producer in Israel’s fashion industry, Fashion Week in Tel Aviv has very soon gained international claim through the participation of guest designers and fashion houses such as Roberto Cavalli and Missoni. Its fifth edition coincides with the 60th anniversary of one of Israel most famous fashion houses – the swimwear brand Gottex, which in the past has boasted super models such as Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer as its presentors. A special Gottex homage fashion show is going to open Gindi TLV Fashion Week’s gala event on January 29th.
Further highlights will include a fashion show by students of Shenkar College, whose Fashion Design department has for the second time in the row been ranked within the top 10 in the world by Business of Fashion. (Please find the full list of designers below).
