This collection is inspired by my heritage as a Jewish woman. I’m exploring Jewish symbolism and focusing on the moon and pomegranates. Rosh Chodesh is a celebration of the new moon which, in ancient times, was the only time women had an opportunity to take off from their daily chores and be free. Pomegranates supposedly have 613 seeds, the amount of commandments, and are one of the native spices of Israel, the Holy Land. My Judaism is a large and very important part of my identity. I am striving to help women feel empowered and comfortable in their own identity.
