You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m Yael Trusch, your host. Welcome to the show and happy new year. It’s 5779! I hope you all had a meaningful Rosh Hashanah, and surely now you are getting ready for Yom Kippur. I don’t know about you, but I’m super optimistic and excited about this new year. And sharing my optimism, today I have on the show a woman who exudes self-confidence and joy. She’s not a spiritual guru or a teacher. She is a Fashion Icon. Yes, she’s Adi Heyman! You know Adi, right?
Profiled in the New York Times, named one of New York City’s most fashionable women, and a regular at New York City’s Fashion week, Adi was one of the first to promote modest fashion through her blog Fabologie. Presenting her vision of what modesty could be and look like, which was of course influenced by her experience as a writer in the fashion industry and her love for Judaism and Jewish life, Adi became a pioneer of what we know now as the modest fashion trend. Is it here to stay? What does Adi think of modest fashion and of Jewish observance in general? How does one deal with being in an industry whose values don’t align all that much with Jewish values? Listen to what Adi has to say, because it applies to whatever industry you’re in.
Never seen as a challenge or hindrance by Adi, she attributes her Judaism to her success as a fashion blogger and influencer. With her wig, long sleeves and longer hemline, shoulder to shoulder with designers and models, Adi was a pioneer in the industry, so what new fashion trend is she onto now.
She says modesty is her badge of honor as a Jewish wife and mother and she celebrates daily her life’s choices. Whether you are an adopter of modesty, a fashionista or none, this interview ladies, will speak to you, I guarantee it. Here we go ladies, here’s the lovely Adi Heyman…
