The keffiyeh — the Arab headdress meant to provide protection from sun and sand which became a symbol of Palestinian nationalism — was draped over Israeli models during one show of Tel Aviv Fashion Week.
Designer Yaron Minkowski said he imported the keffiyehs from Hebron, and turned the black-and-white and red-and-white keffiyehs into a symbol of coexistence.
The scarves were made into six day- and evening-wear dresses for his collection.
Meanwhile, Minkowski’s 14-year-old daughter, Ori Minkowski, had her own capsule collection within her father’s, featuring lots of pink hearts and leggings for the tween-teen crowd.
But she also included an Israeli flag bathing suit, perhaps in a nod to the times.
Typical father-daughter clash? Didn’t look like it.
