“I wanted to create something that would be mine but also bigger than life: a fashion house representing Israeli heritage,” says Sharon, mother of two little girls, and returning resident from the USA. “I have experience from McQueen that not a lot of people in Israel have. I am able to teach the embroidery methods Maskit used to use in addition to other antique methods I learned to our seamstresses here in Israel.”
