Currently on display at The Israel Museum in Jerusalem is an exhibit exploring the history and counter culturalism of Israeli fashion. Titled, “Fashion Statements: Decoding Israeli Dress,” the garments on display represent historical pre-Zionist fashion and other clothes through the years to where European and Asian influence infiltrated the small Middle Eastern country’s sense of style and palette.

With ongoing efforts for the Museum to explore the region’s cultural landscape, diving into fashion became essential. The exhibit also includes sketches, films, and photographs that represent Israel’s fashion world and are included to foster “a dialogue about tradition and modernity, myth and reality, and conflicting ideologies.”
