Have nothing to wear? Just throw on a t-shirt. You probably already own quite a few.Mostly everyone has a drawer stuffed of t-shirts, many that could tell their life story. The drawer is probably likely full of ones made in preschool, to grade school pride day tees, family vacation memorabilia or t-shirts that bring back memories of crazy college days.
The t-shirts that are collected in your drawer are perhaps the simplest form of personal expression. Easy and inexpensive to create, just about anyone can put artwork or words on the front of a cotton shirt to get their point across. The design community in Israel has decided to bring all of this creative expression to one place in its T-Market, an annual accessories and t-shirt market that was held this past weekend in Tel Aviv.
The T-Market was started as a small gathering to showcase the innovative ways artists were designing the most popular selling item of clothing. But in only the first two days of the original market, the space was flooded with over 7,000 people scouring to find the t-shirt that best fit their personality. The T-Market has continued to grow, showcasing over 70 designers and traveling to over four cities in Israel.Although you may have missed your chance to discover your favorite new t-shirt to add to your collection in Tel Aviv, you can check out the T-Market’s Web site to see when and where you can get the next opportunity to dance from table to table, a T-Market tradition.
