Bold was the word of the evening on Sunday at the premier event of this year’s Tel Aviv Fashion Week. The festivities, which took place at the Tachana refurbished antique train station, inspired outfits that were anything but antique. The fashion-forward attendees brought daring patterns, untamed hairdos, and some even wore an accent of red to match the red carpet.
Although there were some misses, a bold statement is always something to be commended. From extravagant hats to bedazzled shoes, it seemed everyone wanted to get noticed at this media-frenzy event. The evening concluded with the guest of honor, Moschino, presenting its2013 collection. The 70s inspired collection was slightly outdated, but certain pieces incorporated the nostalgic look with a somewhat more contemporary feel, which was refreshing, but not earth shattering. Overall, it was nothing to write home about.
It’s a shame that the spotlight was only on the models, because the real stars of the evening were the guests. Here is a glimpse of some of Fashion Week’s most daring pedestrian style statements.

Try it: Use a bright accessory to liven up a plain, neutral, or dark outfit. All you need is one attention-grabbing piece. Less is more.
Warning: It might freak people out if you wear faces all over your body. One face can potentially work, be it a classic Hollywood star or influential figure, but never more than one. You could end up looking like a milk carton misprint gone terribly wrong.
