Tommy Hilfiger expands international empire, debuts store in Tel Aviv

The world-famous fashion mogul spends 24 hours in Israel to promote his latest retail store opening.

American fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger visited Tel Aviv last Wednesday to celebrate the opening of his new retail store in Israel. The new store, which opened in the trendy Sarona neighborhood, is the first Hilfiger has opened in Israel and expands his international fashion empire. He currently has over 1,000 retail stores across the globe.

While he only spent 24 hours in the Israeli city, Hilfiger made it a point to spend some time with his friend, Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli. Check out the photo she posted to her Instagram account.

The two have worked together numerous times before, including on the Hilfiger-produced documentary Ironic Iconic America.
