What does your brand represent for you? 
My brand for me is my art. It’s the way I express myself and my inner world.

What design elements do you find to be timeless for a wedding gown? 
For me pearls and light beads are timeless for a wedding. Also mesh silks are timeless for me–fabrics that have been always used for bridal, and they’re still used today.

What is the unique and different design process for each one of your pieces? 
I like that all of my gowns have something that connects each one to the others, but each one will have their own way of expression: the placement of the details, the combination of the fabrics, it’s like each gown has its own story. 

Three words to describe your world? 
My world when I design is Limitless anything is possible and full of Magic and Mystery.

Do you think that living in Tel Aviv gives you a different perspective to your design? 
Living in Tel Aviv with so many different cultures in such a small country brings so many ways of inspiration. I love learning more about different cultures and take inspiration from their customs and styles.
