Even after a really busy day, I could not pass up a chance to attend 

Inside Tower of David

the opening of a new exhibit at the Tower of David Museum.

Ten Israeli fashion designers have created

 original costumes around the theme of  ‘Women of Jerusalem’.

and this one for Roxelana are as unusual as the names of the women.

No matter what you think of these designer fashions and the show,

as the sun sets and the lights go on,

the Tower of David is even more magnificent!

These one-of-a-kind fashions and their photographs 

will be on display in the museum until October.
