Tel Aviv museum displays 14 Jewish bridal gowns
Jan '14
An exhibition displaying more than 14 Jewish bridal wear designs is going on at Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People, an international centre for the Jewish community in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The exhibit is the result of a unique collaboration between the museum’s Israel Friends organization members, such as Gedeon Hamburger, Irit Admoni Perlman and Motty Reif, and designer Ronen Levin-trained 14 third-year wedding-gown design students from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.
The event titled  ‘Here Comes the Bride: Wedding Gowns Embroidering the Story of the Jewish People’ showcases 13 bridal dresses, one henna ceremonial gown and a bridegroom’s outfit, based on the styles sported by Jewish people residing in Yemen, Iraq, Turkey, Spain, Poland, Germany, Morocco and Algeria.
Decorated with handmade embroidery on yards of traditional materials, the exceptional dresses were inspired from the museum’s permanent and temporary exhibits as well as preserved documents and artefacts.
Also visual imagery of synagogue models, Judaica, Ketubas (marriage contracts), musical instruments, folklore music, Jewish mysticism, embroidered items, dowry chests and family photos have also played as sources of inspiration for the designers. 
Among the major attractions of the exhibit is designer Mor Kfir’s gown, featuring an embroidered and braided lace, silk and chiffon fabric made dress, inspired from the character of the tragic bride captured by devil Dybukk in the classic 1928 Yiddish play staged at Habima National Theatre of Israel.
Slated to run through April 18, 2014, the exhibits were first debuted at the December 2012’s edition of Gindi Fashion Week. After the Tel Aviv museum display, the exhibition would later travel to Austria.
