Fashion Statements: Decoding Israeli Dress

On display at The Israel Museum
-

Based on pioneering research, Fashion Statements explores central themes in the history of dress in Israel – from the late 19th-century indigenous pre-Zionist “fashion,” through the opposing forces of Europeanism and Orientalism that converged in the early decades of the state, to the place that Israeli creativity holds on the global fashion scene today. Through a sumptuous display of clothing, fashion sketches, films, and fashion photography, this large-scale exhibition illustrates the broad scope of fashion in Israel, from its deepest historical roots to contemporary collections, fostering a dialogue about tradition and modernity, myth and reality, and conflicting ideologies. Presenting a rich, quintessentially local narrative, the exhibition is part of the Israel Museum’s ongoing exploration of this region’s cultural landscape.
