The debut Overall Festival recently took place at the Tower of David Museum, Jerusalem, from 16-20 July.

The event was a first –of –its- kind -platform for designers, artists, musicians and scholars to share and explore new concepts, narratives, and frontiers within the realm of fashion.

Overall aims to provoke fresh insights regarding the many ways today’s global fashion ecosystem operates, both in theory and in practice. “One of the things that both unites and characterises Jerusalem is the blend of old and new, ancient and modern,” said Sarit Goldstein, Director General of the Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage.

The Tower of David Museum hosted dozens of designers and artists, all participating in a unique conversation surrounding fashion. Live demonstrations of craft-making punctuated every nook and cranny of the Tower of David Museum – from traditional crafts through to the use of modern technology. From machine-knitting to shoemaking, jewellery-making to fashion sketching, every medium of practice was given a voice, This includes those of interactive installations, as well as a workshop to learn traditional Palestinian embroidery. In addition there were live performances by Ester Rada, AWA, and Shai Tsabari, and a market of “made in Israel” designer clothes, shoes, and accessories.
