Israeli Fashionistas’ Faux Resistance

An Israeli fashion house plans to shoot its summer catalog at Israel’s West Bank security barrier this week, the company said Monday, less than a week after troops shot dead two Palestinians protesting the network of walls, wire and ditches.

A statement from the fashion house, Comme-il-faut, said the one-day shoot Wednesday would take place at a section of the barrier on the edge of Jerusalem “for the purpose of creating a dialogue around boundaries.”

The statement said the event would contrast beauty, femininity and fashion with a “concrete wall of insult, ugliness and humiliation.”

Let’s take advantage of an international controversy to attract attention to our clothing and package it as a political statement! -cough!- Destruction of the poor is poverty. Destruction of the soul is vanity. (c/o TVFH)
