In recent decades, the fashion industry in Israel has undergone dramatic changes: from an independent and prosperous industry to an industry in collapse, in which hundreds and even thousands of businesses close every year. These changes are associated with several factors: the rise of the neoliberal economy, a change in government policy in the textile industry, the expansion of online commerce, and the Israeli consumers’ tendency towards mass consumption of cheap clothes. The main factor underlying this reality is the infiltration of the Fast Fashion model into Israel. This paper sets out to review this process and its consequences on the Israeli fashion and textile industry: changes in government policy towards the textile industry and finally the emergence of a sustainable fashion movement in Israel.
