Do you love fashion? I do! Did you know that the Israeli fashion industry is producing amazing talent and my guest today is on to this, identifying talented Israeli designers and bringing them to the U.S. fashion scene. You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m Yael Trusch your host. We’re talking fashion today with none other than Kim Heyman. Kim has over a decade experience in the fashion industry, working for Alberta Ferretti’s US headquarters, representing fashion icons such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Narciso Rodriguez, Ungaro, and more. She has worked with celebrities, and with some of the top fashion editors and stylists in the world.
However, Kim has made a pivot and channeled her love for fashion and industry experience towards her other love, Israel. She is now on a mission to bring Israeli fashion designers to the forefront of the NY fashion scene. But, wait there’s more. As this has happened, Kim has developed an affinity towards the Jewish attribute of modesty as expressed in women’s fashion and so now, she’s really honing in on that.
Wait till you hear what Kim Hayman, has to say today about modesty. What recent change has she made in her wardrobe? How has her connection with Judaism evolved over time? And what does she tell Israeli designers who want her to represent them? Kim’s new passion project working with a girl’s boarding school in Israel – not much to do with fashion per se, but definitely with her role as an influencer and a female role model. Here’s the lovely Kim Heyman.
