Glam had the honor of chatting with this rising designer!!
Glam: Hi Tal, thanks for chatting with us. Tell us about where you’re from and how long have you been in the fashion industry?
Tal: “Hi glam, thank you u for interviewing me. I have been in this business for ten years; I started out as a Makeup Artist. Four years ago, I was hired to do make- up for a fashion show, but I ended up producing the entire show! I did swimsuit, cover up …I made everything. After the show, I received great reviews, so I ended up turning my living room into a showroom; I bought two sewing machines and found myself a seamstress. All of a sudden, orders began to flow in and the sky has been the limit since!”
Glam: So you started in this industry as a Cosmetologist in Israel to being a major Cosmetologist in Europe, how was that like?
Tal: “Well it’s been great, I did make-up for photo shoots, red carpets, and I travelled a lot and met a lot of influential people.”
Glam: When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer?
Tal: “Well I knew all my life I wanted to do something meaningful, after doing that first fashion show I stop doing makeup, and jobs were coming in from all directions.”
Glam: Since launching your clothing line, you have made a name for yourself in the fashion industry, what are some other accomplishments as a designer you’ve encountered?
Tal: “I have worked with so many celebrities and socialites. I have dressed people like Nicole Miller, Melanie Westmore, Stephanie Barative, LaToya Jackson, Housewives of Orange County, Ashton Kutcher and the list goes on.”
Glam: What do you believe makes a quality article of clothing?
Tal: “The fabric is what makes the clothes, a person can wear any clothes, but the fabric, designs, and even the stitch is what tells the story!”
Glam: Tell us about your new line with Alexis Bellino?
Tal: “Well this line is classy yet casual. My inspiration is European; it brings feminine, classy and sexy in one! Alexis is great and I have great success working with her.”
Glam: Where do you get your inspiration?
Tal: “Fabric, (she laughs) When I go out and pick fabric; I look for the feel, colors, and patterns. My collection comes from that.”
Glam: How would you define the style your line exemplifies?
Tal: “European, feminine, and classy. My line is for anyone, it can be dressy or casual, and it doesn’t ages you instead it brings out your sexy side in a classy way!”
Glam: Your clothing line is also being featured on Beverly Hills 90210-congratulations with that, tell us what other projects are you working on?
Tal: “Can’t say too much, but I am working on my own Reality TV show with Bravo, and a lot of doors are opening right now.”
Glam: When working with celebs, do you find them to be demanding and/or difficult?
Tal:(laughing) “No, I have no problem, I work with a lot of them, sometimes you have to talk to them through their publicist, but I haven’t encountered any problems so far.”
Glam: What advice do you have for aspiring fashion designers?
Tal: “First of all, you have to be passionate about it; you have to know you are about business. To make your brand, it takes hard work; make sure you do your homework. I thought it was going to be easy, but it’s not, so never forget hard work goes into it.”
Glam: What are some of your fashion goals?
Tal: “To open my own boutiques- worldwide and to be a household name!”
