PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Israeli food, dancing and fashion are being highlighted at a unique fashion show in Old City.
Fashion might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Israel, but Galit Carmely, owner of My Little Redemption Boutique, says it should.
“Israeli designers are very fashion forward, really creative,” Carmely said. “They’re taking every trend one step further and making it look timeless.”
Carmely says she’s thrilled to be bringing designer Sasson Kedem to Old City to showcase his latest work. She says his clothes are the most popular in her store. Meanwhile, Kedem says his designs are very much influenced by where he lives.
“I think we are in a different world here in Israel,” he said. “We have a lot of smiles and a lot of pressure and a lot of cry and a lot of everything and I think through all the story of that, we make different and special fashion.”
So how would she describe his looks?
“It is a flowy style that compliments women’s bodies,” Carmely said.
The show takes place Wednesday, September 21.
