The premiere episode of Project Runway Israel showed host Shiraz Tal introducing the thirteen designers. The designers were given their first challenge: design a dress inspired by one of Rita Kleinstein's songs. The designers made their way to their new home and studio where they began to work. At the studio, drama occurred when Meshie found it hard to design her dress and asked for help. When contestants helped her, she caused trouble and they got mad at her for her poor attitude. At the end of the 48 hour time limit, the models walked the runway in front of the judges. Tao disappointed the judges and was eliminated.

During the 2nd episode, the designers went to a stall shop in Jaffa, Israel. They had a quick challenge to pick out the ugliest clothing they could find. Yoav won the challenge. The designers were then given their challenge: to design a sexy undergarment from the ugly clothing they had taken from the stalls for Hadas & Inbal, former contestants (a.k.a. The Blondes) from the reality TV show HaMerotz LaMillion to wear in a fashion magazine. Guy failed to design, and reconstructed his underwear several times. Moran got frustrated when she couldn't find the correct materials to finish her dress. Moran won the challenge. The weakest three were Guy, Maria, and Netanel, who didn't manage to create a beautiful underwear garment. Guy and Maria landed in the bottom two, but Guy was given another chance and Maria was sent home.
