TLVSTYLE IN ST. LOUIS

My journey to St Louis started on November 2018 when the following message hit my mailing box: “Hi Galit, I wanted to reach out to let you know that we at the Jewish Federation of St. Louis (in Women's Philanthropy) would be very interested in talking with you about coming to St. Louis to be our featured speaker for the Lion of Judah/Pomegranate donor appreciation event in April of 2018. Is this something that you would consider?”

That moment I knew that my mission of TLVstyle continues in the right direction. I was filled with joy and fulfillment and couldn’t wait for our Skype call to confirm my arrival. The day of the event was set for May 14th. High season for the incoming tourism in Israel, yet I was happy to take advantage and choose in the other side of the world and that was so rewarded.

II was honored to give a talk about Israeli fashion front influential women while in the audience sits the honoring guest Marilyn Fox. That was very special for me to share my point of view on the Israeli fashion industry through my 12 years of experience, inside and outside Israel, with the focus on the six years of activity in the fashion tourism service and that since than be able to engage, educate and inspire my people with the story of the local fashion industry.

I love to quote of Albert Einstein who once said: "Creativity is contagious, pass it on" and to have the privilege to pass my passion and knowledge to beautiful communities of Jewish women in the USA. Talking about the fashion history to nowadays values aside the challenges that are shaping the industry and allow it to become a unique hub of creativity filled with innovation of mindsets, materials and technologies.

Israel fashion had and will have many faces for creation and success. Israel is an exhilarating blend of ancient cultures and cutting-edge innovation. It’s a lot about the human spirit and the fashion entrepreneurs. It’s about originality, approachable, grounded and brave designs. I see in the fashion story that can be parallel to the establishment of Israel. It is the story of the growth of creativity when everything comes together to a beautiful colorful HUMAN FABRIC.
