Gindi Tel Aviv Fashion Week, taking place between March 12 - 15, 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. 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 model presenters such as Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer. A special Gottex homage fashion show will open Gindi TLV Fashion Week’s gala event on March 12th.
Founded in 2011 by Motty Reif, a visionary and chief producer in Israel’s fashion industry, Fashion Week in Tel Aviv has gained international claim through the participation of guest designers and fashion houses such as Roberto Cavalli and Missoni.
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).
“Producing Fashion Week in Tel Aviv for the 5th time is seeing our vision come true to give back the Israeli fashion industry its pride and status”, said Motty Reif. “We are very thankful to Gindi Group for being our chief partner throughout the years and together with us for believing in the huge potential, which lies within todays Israeli fashion designers.”
Fashion Week will be held at the exclusive Gindi TLV Fashion Mall, scheduled to open in the heart of Tel Aviv in February 2017. This first-of-a-kind commercial center in Israel, which hosted Fashion Week for the past four years, will hold over 300 prestigious international and local fashion and retail brands, for many of which this will be their tribute in Israel, as well as selected Israeli designers.
