Liraz is one of the most dynamic speakers I have ever heard, and this coming from a former trial and news reporter who has worked with (and competed against) some of the best communicators around. Her talk at Hillel International on the history of Israeli fashion was fast paced, funny and full of useful information. With the use of props, video, audio and still photography, she took the large audience on a journey through the decades of Israeli couture. But this was no mere fashion show. She taught us to look at fashion as a reflection of politics, history, economics, psychology, in turn, teaching as much about the way people and nations think as about how they dress. Even the non-sartorially minded in the crowd were mesmerized. I would highly recommend this speaker for any audience.
Liraz is one of a kind! Her lecture is extremely interesting and full of knowledge. The fact that Liraz knew how to get to those that fashion is not one of their biggest interests was just indescribable. The way she engage with the audience, the presentation itself, the clothes she is bringing with her just to let the audience feel the history...are simply more than you can expect. Liraz, we at Duke University can't wait to host you again for your next lectures tour! THANK YOU!

The program was terrific!
I had so much positive feedback from the community on your presentation – they loved you and your program. You are a wonderful speaker, and your super positive energy really came through the medium (Zoom).
It’s not easy to do, and the participants there appreciated how well the program was put together. They loved it. Thanks again!

Thank you so very much for such an amazing and interesting talk. I learned so much and was moved by how you illustrated fashion through the backdrop of distinct eras in Israel’s history. As a Zionist at heart the music, footage and photos moved me as if we all stood and sang hatikvah.

It was a pleasure to have Liraz Cohen as our guest speaker at our Jewish National Fund-USA Women for Israel Luncheon. She is warm, friendly and has a positive energy. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Israeli fashion and has a dynamic way of sharing that with her audience. She is easy to work with, very accommodating and flexible. I would love to invite her back to our community again.

Liraz spoke to NFTY board during an intense program about Israel at camp Kutz . she was great- both genders could relate to her, and wanted to hear more about Israeli fashion. THANK YOU LIRAZ!
- Nadav Savaia, Senior Shaliach, Union for Reform Judaism
Liraz had insight on the current American trends and how they compare to Israeli ones, which helped us relate even more to her presentation. If that wasn't enough connection to the Israeli clothes, she even provided some samples for us to try on and model for each other! The photo-shoot afterward ensured we will not forget how to dress as the Israelis do.
