Holon fashion week is going at full force and after visiting intriguing jewelry and shoe design exhibits, up next on our busy schedules was New Love: an exhibit featuring the concept “new love”, as seen and expressed by fashion people, artists, photographers, and designers.
Tamar Karavan, the stylist and fashion photographer curator of the exhibit, said that she chose artists and designers to feature in the exhibit who all share the same sentiment; that “new love” is something that gives you a “high” of happiness, euphoria and curiosity and at the same time makes you apprehensive and unsure.
One of Karavan’s pieces were featured in the exhibit as well: A one-piece bathing suit where the stitching is a medical drawing of the heart with its arteries and blood canals, and by it a photo of Tamar Karavan, modeling the bathing suit.
Another beautiful and inspired piece was a dress made out of paper by young designer Odelia Arnold, as inspired by poetry written by famed stylist Mayan Goldman.
Our favorite piece in this exhibit was Fontaine de Sang (French for Fountain of Blood), a stunning hand-sewn silk couture piece with a bleeding heart. This piece was designed by Mor Kfir, who recently graduated with a degree in fashion design.
Another recent fashion graduate, Mayan Levi Alentek, exhibited hand-knit watermelon heels, very humorously named “kitchen wear”.
We’re sure we’ll see a lot more from these two creative minds in the future.
Vera wore a layered midi skirt, striped top, silver chain necklaces, red ballerina flats, black tote and knit cardigan.
Rony wore a bustier blouse, pinstriped skort, cage heels, layered rhinestone necklaces, and a vintage Chanel bag.
The exhibit was held at an amazing gallery, a beautiful space with a gorgeous garden.
This gallery is very aptly named The Farm, it is a bit of rural land in the middle of the city. While the place was a bit hard to find, it was definitely worth our efforts!
