Here is a video of the Sivan Levi bridal collection for 2013 where you can see designs for wedding dresses in Israel. The bridal shop is based in Nesher, near Haifa and you can see views of the city in the video.
The designer, Sivan Levi, is only 25 and originally from Tiberias. The wedding dresses are hand-made in couture trim, mostly specially tailor made for each bride, as are many Israeli wedding dresses.
I love the reds and oranges hot this summer. Here is a great outfit from Studio Shihar www.studioshihar.co.il by designer Shira Tilles Marcus. Shira’s past as a sculptress before becoming a fashion designer, is evident in her designs.
Studio Shihar Israeli Fashion
You can get these clothes at the wonderful Shihar Shop in Pardes Hannah or through the Shihar Etsy Shop www.shihar.etsy.com.
I just found this video about Israeli fashion and accessorily designers working and selling out of the Gan HaHashmal area of South Tel-Aviv, like FrauBlau that I have mentioned before.
This is a great area to visit if you are interested in new, up-and-coming designers, as this area has many interesting designer studio/shops. The shop is usually in front and the actual studio is in the back. I love these shops because since the studio is on site, the designer is usually there for you to meet.
Dorin Frankfurt is an Israeli clothing designer known for good design, and her clothes are known for good quality. What I love about Dorin Frankfurt’s clothes designs is that they are so beautifully structured with wonderful workmanship. I have a very pretty plum colored evening dress by Dorin Frankfurt that I wore to my sisters wedding. Sadly I was not able to find a picture of that dress to show you. (I may have to post a picture of myself wearing it.) Here are some Dorin Frankfurt clothes for you too see.
I love this pink dress. I may have to find it and buy it for myself.

Naama Betzalel is a clothing designer whose designs are extremely feminine in style with a retro touch. Naama Betzallel’s main store on Deizengof street in Tel Aviv also has a bridal department on the top floor. Naama Betzallel’s brides dresses are unique and pretty in a feminine but special way, unlike most other bridal gowns you are probably used to seeing.
Ronen Chen is probably my favorite Israeli fashion designer. His clothes have clean lines but with a twist. Structured but not restricting. His designs are sophisticated and interesting but not trying to hard. My two favorite items by Ronen Chen that I love are a charcoal grey folded very open neck, foe wrap sweater. I wear it structured to work and off the shoulder when going out and a black sleeveless black dress. It comes down to the knee and gathers in the middle in a diamond shape. (Why can’t I find a picture of these clothes to show you?) The best thing about wearing Ronen Chen clothing is that all of clothes fit the Israeli climate so well. This is especially significant in the summer. I would not want to wear anything but a cool Ronen Chen dress in a hot and sticky Tel Aviv summers day. http://www.ronenchen.com/
