Women Empowering Women
I am all about celebrating woman, and doing this event really felt empowering! Seeing my daughter in the front row with her friends, inspired by all the women in the room was so beautiful. Thank you to the Israeli American Council for helping me put on such an amazing fashion event. Another major shoutout to the wonderful Keynote Speaker – Ms. Andrea Zoop, the president and CEO of World Business Chicago, who talked about Women in Power Position.

Very special thank you to everyone who attended this event! Also thank you to Lital Raz, and my incredible staff who helped me create my vision, including Tasha Liberman, Genovil Lovin, Alexia Bauer, Lauren Gregory, Marleen Miller, and Kristie Marshiano, who all contributed in amazing ways. My photographers, Jonathan Cohan and Elisabeth Maria Smith, who also captured my very first Runway Show 8 years ago. Cyndy Martinez, our other talented photographer who also captured special behind-the-scenes moments from the show. Our incredible models including my beautiful friend Ceta who walked for all 5 designers. And last but certainly not least our Israeli designers and everyone else who made this event possible I am truly so grateful. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
