About the Collection

‘The SHAKHINAH glory’ is based on the symbolic and spiritual value of mystical light.
Ever since one could speak of ‘cultures’ light has always played a symbolic role in rituals and religions. In some cases, light was attributed supernatural, divine and spiritual powers. Hence the term ‘enlightened’ women that refer to those who enlighten the spiritual routes of others through their veils. These women have the power to lead humanity to a higher state of consciousness and represent the highest state of holiness.
Traditional craftsmanship shows an organic consistency in my collection of pants, veils and slim bodies. Sculptural circular shapes emphasize the waist and create an elegant feminine silhouette.
