Last week, Israeli designers rallied together for Tel Aviv Fashion Week for the first time in decades. Roberto Cavalli helped kick off the week by presenting his own spring collection. Oddly enough though, they only invited press – no buyers. According to the shows’ kickstarting organizer Orif Lev, they are not ready to go abroad.

Perhaps this fashion week incite a worldwide demand for Israeli clothing? Take a look at some designers who sent their models walking.
