What a former Haredi now does working in fashion design, and what another Israeli designer unfortunately thinks is great

A former Haredi citizen of Bnei Brak who suffered the tragedy of sexual assault now works in fashion designing:
Israeli designer Aharon Genish's fashion show on Monday was one of the most unforgettable events in Israel's fashion scene in recent years, and undoubtedly the most spectacular show of this week's runway at Kornit Fashion Week in Tel Aviv.

[...] Last year, he made his debut in the "Upcoming" fashion show with his collection titled "You Will Not Shut Up," captivating the audience with pieces that drew from his own personal experiences, including glimpses into two traumatic sexual assault events he endured during his childhood."

Genish grew up in the ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak where he sought ways to explore the world outside the confines of the yeshiva and cheder.

He was left with a question about his place in the world, and eventually found it through freedom, art, and creativity.

He transforms conservative clothing items from different historical periods into edgy and distinctive fashion pieces, imbuing them with a poetic and romantic quality while still paying homage to their historical and traditional significance.
From what I've seen of his designs, they seem to be anything but "modest", and he shouldn't have to restrict himself to the kind of mindset the Haredis go by. That's how to maintain true creativity.

But since we're on the subject, there's also a most disgusting report over here about Israeli designers who're making "gender fluid" fashions:
Gender inclusivity in Israeli clothing is not new. However, while kibbutz and army uniforms were once a great equalizer, today’s designers of gender-fluid fashions are on a mission to allow people to express their individuality.

Three big names in this field are Hed Mayner – dubbed Paris Fashion Week 2023’s “hidden gem” on Instagram – along with David Weksler and Liel Bomberg from Ultra.

[...] “There is still a long way to go yet for people to be liberated from old norms and be more free and open with how they dress,” says Weksler, who will open Tel Aviv Fashion Week on March 19 with his collection.

Ever since his school days he felt an “inner urge” to deal with “the pressing issues of gender and masculinity and all the changes and challenges it has been facing in these past years.”

After studying at Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art in Ramat Gan, Weksler attended Central St. Martin’s design school in London, where he was exposed to a specific way of perceiving Israelis – men in particular.

“I felt that some light should be shed on that topic. I wanted to showcase the beauty and the uniqueness of the Israeli men I knew, in a way that was truer to who and what they are.”

A former menswear designer, Weksler has been drawn to make what he calls “gender free” clothing for the past three years.

It is homoerotic and emotionally charged, but it is not feminized, not necessarily gentle in the way that we usually perceive something that is not typically masculine. Things are changing, and I want my work to be representative of that.”
Somehow, I can't help feel his idea of "unfeminized" clothing was deliberate, out of contempt for the fairer sex. In any event, this is certainly illuminating of an Israeli leftist who sadly believes he simply has to follow the ultra-leftist "trends" of wokeness, and insult people's intellects with clothing that's insulting to gender.

Let's put it this way. If he wants to conceive outfits similar to Scottish kilts, that's fine. Same if he wants to design outfits that could evoke what men in the Biblical era wore, which wasn't trousers. Those particular forms of clothing weren't made for the sake of political agendas. But to make clothing deliberately for the sake of an agenda that believes distinction between sexes should be blurred, and that identity should be denied, is a disgrace. Sometimes, I think this country's been far too influenced by the identity politics of the USA's leftists, and this is certainly one such example, whose products should not be bought.
