There is nothing quite like the excitement of discovering new talent - especially when it comes from my homeland Israel.
This time the discovery was easy as Barak Lahav brought his entire collection all the way from Israel to my showroom in Chicago.

I was amazed by his ambition, creativity, hard work, and of course couldn't resist the opportunity to interview Barak for my blog. 

When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer?

Since I remember myself at all. When I was a little kid I was drawing my mom’s dresses during breakfast.

You mentioned that so far you launched 4 collections; what's your favorite piece?

The jumper from my last collection! This was a true challenge for me as it was the first pant I ever designed. I put a tremendous amount of work into it and it ended up being my best selling item.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

As much as it's challenging to be an emerging designer in Israel, I hope to be recognized worldwide and to continue living my dream.

What's your inspiration as a designer? Who is your idol?

I am inspired a lot by street fashion and what I see on social media. I am a huge fan of Instagram. Alber Elbaz is my idol, I adore his style and every single detail in his designs.

What is the “must-have item" every woman should own?

Put that hat on! It’s just amazing what wonders this accessory can do to your outfit. I was looking for a piece to complete looks for my last photo shoot and a hat I found in an Israeli flea market was the perfect complement!

I am thrilled to welcome Barak Lahav on
For those of you who live in or are visiting Chicago, you can make an appointment to see his collection at my showroom. (email to make an appointment)
For those that live in or are visiting Israel, Barak will be making an appearance at the amazing Limka boutique this weekend! (2 Shlomo Hamelech St)

In my next blog post I will be featuring one of my favorite pieces from Barak's Lahav collection. 
I love the loose yet chic style of his Ruffle dress as I can comfortably wear it while expecting my baby boy :)  Here is a sneak peek.



Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you enjoyed and come back soon.
