The Fashion Week held in Israel recently may have skipped the Western Wall, but members of the liberal women's group known for wearing a prayer shawl at the holy site, in spite of ultra-Orthodox opposition, have inspired a new clothing line launched by the Comme-Il-Faut fashion house.

After the company's "Women Crossing Borders" catalog shot next to the separation fence, it's now the Women of the Wall's turn. "We actually imagined the Women of the Wall wearing Comme-Il-Faut clothes and praying covered with prayer shawls," says one of the brand's two designers, Karin Leikovich.
