Interview: Gala Rachmilevitch Of Curvy Couture, Pink Hair & When Will Be Normal Plus Size

Gala Rachmilevitch, the pioneer in terms of plus-size fashion in Israel, is a colorful personality and has recorded it with an entire industry.Today, we have to do this they interviewed and exciting answers and insights.

Ago what problems are plus size women in your country? The fashion industry in Israel loves Photoshop and shows for many years only thin and slender young women in their advertising, fashion shows and on television. I am convinced that this is the reason why most Israeli women hate their bodies. We live in a world and in a country that all the time gives you the message, that ‘beautiful’ is only thin and young. But the fact that we all live in different parts of the world, for example in Russia, Morocco and Europe, we all are different. After 18 years as a personal stylist, I can say that 98% of Israeli women I’ve met don’t like her body and feel not comfortable in it. This is also the reason why they are too shy to wear swimsuits and we live in a very hot country with stunning beaches. And without knowing that they deserve to wear beautiful fashion and not to conceal. We change now after around 50 years ago, where the women have learned to cover up. It took us some time, but they learned it.

Of the designer Ronen Chen offered no plus-size fashion in Israel for the UK plus size fashion label Evans , however, already. Why are shying away from many brands for plus size collections? Unfortunately Ronen Chen and many other Israeli designers shy away from plus size collections to design because they think that the fashion world is not like it if offered a plus size line in Israel. Ronen Chen is a good example, because this label in Israel has many shops where only fashion will be sold up to size 44. But, during my visit to London, I could buy the fashion by Ronen Chen for me. I don’t know why this is so and why this is so also with others, but I know that in the last year and a half since my first plus-size fashion weekend more and more designers ask me on the topic of plus size. I hope we could convince them and show them that we are thick and proud and we want to fashion. I hope that many of them join us and stop anxiety before having what will tell the fashion world over them.

If you freely had three wishes, what would you wish? Wow. Enough power to have to continue to fight. Achieving every woman, to teach her to love herself and that she should dress for yourself. The last wish would be helping designers, so they must not close their stores and all the time to teach them how they for plus size women should design.

What do you mean by perfect happiness? When I’m retired, because all women love themselves as they are.

What do you like about your appearance? Everything. The only not as crazy love my small breasts are I.

How can settings to plus size be changed? Step by step. Now, we have a magazine and more and more fashion items, campaigns, and advertising.The setting will change if it will be quite normal to see models in many different sizes and if editors stop to use Photoshop. As soon as we stop to make a difference between petite and plus size. It will take some time, but it will happen.

What successes have you achieved already? I set up a new world of fashion – this is the greatest and I’m very proud of. I bring to work many designers at right and to be successful. Personally, I’m very proud of me, that I further made even though the fashion world has shut me out. And Furthermore, I have created a new fashion world everyone wants to participate in the.

What talent would you like? Sewing can. I have two left hands.

What’s your favorite color? Which memory link you with this color? Black and pink. When I was very young, I was very shy. When I lived in London, I dyed my hair pink and I noticed that the men no longer could yell at me. This is my gun in the business.

What colours did you dye your hair already? In each color.

What is your favorite piece of clothing? I have some, but I think it’s the one the I to the plus size fashion weekend in London contributed. It is a tulle skirt with a stunning top, which made the Israeli designer TALIA for me.

If you would – designing a fashion collection what would you do? I have received many offers over the last few years. I decided for the first time, that I’ll show other people what to do and what I want. I think in the future I will design a collection but. It will be either very nuts or very classic. I haven’t decided yet.

Which piece of clothing you have already the longest? A coat of my grandmother.He has been tailored in the 50s. He is in a great Brown and also classic.

What inspires you? People.

Who are your heroes in life? My mother. My grandmother, who taught me that I deserve to wear fashion every day and it doesn’t matter whether I’m fat or not.Madonna – I remember when I young was that I regarded their style and said “Wow, I would like to one day also be”. It doesn’t matter you what other think about it.

Please complete the sentence: Fashion is … the way to express yourself!

Thank you, dear Gala Rachmilevitch! You’re an inspiration!

Interview: Gala Rachmilevitch On Curvy Couture, Pink Hair And When Plus Size Will Normally Be

Gala Rachmilevitch, the trailblazer in non-system it like on with a plus size fashion in Israel, is on enigmatic personality and has taken whole industry. Today we interviewed her on her successes and have received exciting answers and point of views.

What are the issues of plus size women in your country? The fashion industry in Israel loves Photoshop and presented for many years only thin, skinny, and young woman in commercials, in fashion shows and on TV. I believe that’s the reason why most of the Israeli women hate their bodies. We live in a world and in a country that sends you the message that skinny and young is pretty all the time and since we are from all over the world (Russia, Morocco, Europe, etc.) we are all very different from each other. After 18 years as a personal stylist I can say that 98% of all the Israeli women that I met, don’t like their bodies and don’t feel comfortable with it. Therefore they are too shy to wear swim suits (and we are a very hot country with amazing beaches) or to know that they deserve to wear fashion and not to cover themselves up. We are changing it, but after 50 years in which women were taught to hide and cover themselves, it took us time, but they learnt.

Ronen Chen does not offer plus size in Israel, whereby a Ronen Chen plus size collection is designed for the English plus size fashion label Evans. Why do many labels shy away from plus size collections? Unfortunately Ronen Chen and many Israeli designers shy away from or think that the fashion industry won’t like them if they sell a plus size line or big sizes in Israel. Ronen Chen is a good example cause in Israel he has many stores and he sells only up to size 16. Whilst when I’m travelling to London I can buy his collection. I don’t know or understand why he and other designers do this, but I know that for the last year and a half, since my first plus size fashion weekend, more and more designers are asking me about plus size. I hope that we have convinced them and shown them that we are big and proud and we are looking for fashion too. I hope many of them will join us and that they will stop being scared about what ‚the fashion industry‘ will say about them.

If you had three wishes free what would you wish for? Wow. To have enough power to keep on going with this fight. To reach every woman, to teach her to love herself and that she should dress for herself. The last one is to keep saving designers from closing their shops and to keep teaching them how to work with and create for plus size woman.

What is your idea of perfect happiness? When I’m retired because all the women love themselves and the way they are.

What do you like about your appearance?

Everything. The only part I don’t love so crazy are my small boobs.

How can the attitudes towards plus size be changed? Step by step. Now we have a magazine and more and more fashion editorials, campaigns and advertising. The attitude will change when it is normal to see models in many sizes, when editors stop using Photoshop and when we stop making a difference between petite and plus size. It will take time but it will happen!

What successes have you achieved? I built a new fashion industry – that is the best thing and I’m proud of that. I teach many designers how to work right and how to succeed. Personally – I’m proud of myself that I didn’t give up when the fashion industry didn’t let me in, and I built a new one that they want to be part of.

Which talent would you most like to have?

To sew. I have two left hands.

What is your favorite color? What memory do you connect with this color?Black and pink! when I was young I was very shy, so when I lived in London I colored my hair pink. I noticed that men can’t shout on me. Since then it’s my Weapon in business

In what colors have you dyed your hair? In every color.

What is your favorite piece of clothing? I have few, but I think it’s the one that I wore for the plus size fashion weekend in London. It’s a tulle skirt with amazing top that the Israeli designer TALIA made for me.

If you could create a fashion collection – what would you consider? I have gotten many offers to do that in the last few years. I decided for now that I’ll show other people what to do and what I want, but I think that in future I’ll do a collection. It will be very crazy or very classic. I haven’t decided yet.
Which piece of clothing do you have the longest? My grandmother’s coat. It’s tailor-made from the 50’s and it’s in an amazing brown and classy too.

What inspires you? People.

Who are your heroes in real life? My mom. My grandmother – who taught me that I deserve to wear fashion every day and it doesn’t matter if I’m fat or not. Madonna too. I remember when I was young, I looked at her style and I said to myself „wow, I want to be like her“. She doesn’t care what anyone else thinks.
