Last Sunday night, the inaugural Tel Aviv Fashion week began in Ramat Gan with special guest designer Roberto Cavalli

The brainchild of Moti Reif and Ofir Lev, the event was attended by “Israeli fashion designers, Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai, [“In Treatment” producer and] actress Noa Tishby, fashion designer Gideon Oberson and many others” reports ynet news.

Wonder what Cavalli, who clothes people, would say about Tishby’s favorite Tel Aviv activity: skinny dipping.

Tishby told Hollywood Jew:

“In America, we’re used to big, cold, icy, shark-infested water, but when you grew up by the Mediterranean — in the summer the water is about 75 degrees — the sea is something a lot more welcoming and beautiful. Growing up in Israel, those were my summers: You hang out at the beach by day and build bonfires at night with your high school boyfriend. I was able to re-create that with a group of 40 of my friends from abroad [who came to Israel] for my wedding, and we were partying on the beach, and someone said, ‘Let’s go skinny dipping!’ We all started running toward the water thinking, ‘Who’s gonna get naked first?’

Now that’s what you call a designer dud.
