Last night was the stylish kickoff for the Tel Aviv Couture sample sale and trunk show taking place in Chicago this weekend. The downtown showroom of Tel Aviv Couture has been running since 2007 and is dedicated to showcasing the cutting edge trends of Israeli designers. Founded by Israel native Tali Kogan, Tel Aviv Couture currently features 25 clothing and accessories designers who will be trotting out their wares Friday and Saturday at Galleria Unico for the sample sale. The apparel designers included in the runway show and sample sale include: D and A, Lia, Uga, Bliss, Sugar Daddy, Gal Stern Julliett, Allouche, Alef Alef, Yaron Brahan Bezalel, Inbal Gvili, and Galit Zituny. The jewelry and accessories designers were Tamara, Hagar Saat, and Inbal Gvili.
The kickoff event was held at Rivernorth club Enclave which was decked out in chic, Israeli-themed decor. The party featured a full length fashion show produced by Zazz Productions along with a mini preview sale of some accessory designs. All the pieces in the show were designed and produced in Israel and ran the gamut from embellished minidresses to reconstructed suits to modern bridal. The diverse collections of the designers proved the value of programs like Tel Aviv Couture—providing the interesting and unique concept of showcasing global perspectives on fashion.
