The fashion week is initiated and led by the businessman and producer Motti Reif, and this year a unique venture will be launched - FAC, (Fashion-Agenda-community), which will combine diverse social content from all fields, alongside a celebration of femininity and beauty.

The discourse will deal with issues such as social and gender equality, women's health, sustainability, innovation and more.

In order to give a meaningful platform to the content, celebrities and influential women from all fields will take part in the various panels, who will share their personal stories.

Among the notable content events is a panel dealing with PMS (premenstrual syndrome), led by a senior gynecologist.

Galit Gutman will lead a panel on the changes in menopause, Hila Korah will lead a panel on psoriasis and the ways to treat it, a conversation by Moti Reif with the ultra-Orthodox real estate entrepreneur Hani Horowitz about female entrepreneurship, sexual abuse of children and many other diverse topics. The special opening show is called "Blueness" - This is an ensemble of women aged 65-80 who dance together, directed by Galit Lis. 

Referring to the social situation in which the country is and the demonstrations against the legal reform, Reif clarifies that the fashion week does not deal with politics, and there is a special care this year not to invite political figures to the shows.

However, "there are designers who asked to protest in their shows, and we will allow that," he says.

A host of designers will participate in the shows, some of them are young artists just starting out, and some of them are established designers whose creations are worn by the biggest celebrities in the world.

One of them is Hagar Alembic - "Alembika", who will receive a lifetime achievement award for her work over 35 years in the world of Israeli fashion, and for being the leading and largest fashion exporter from Israel, according to the organizers.
