This Orthodox Jewish Designer and Mom Launched A New Fashion Line
BY JOANNA C. VALENTE for Kveller
Joyce Azria knows a lot about fashion–and how the way we dress shapes our identities and personalities. Fashion doesn’t have to be shallow or superficial, but can be an artistic, outward expression of how we feel–and Azria encourages that.
She grew up in the fashion world, the daughter of Los Angeles-based designer Max Azria. Now, the Orthodox Jewish designer is introducing a new fashion line targeting millennial women. It’s called Avec les Filles (that’s French for “with the girls”), which can be found online and in 155 Macy’s stores.
The Shabbat Project
Welcome to the home of The Shabbat Project. This is where we’re getting the world together to experience and celebrate the Shabbat of 26/27 October 2018.
It all started in South Africa in 2013, when Chief Rabbi Dr. Warren Goldstein called on the community to keep the Shabbat of 14 October together – to astonishing effect. In the days and weeks that followed, communities across the Jewish world lit up with the excitement of the prospect of bringing The Shabbat Project to their city.
The idea is simple: Jews from all walks of life, from across the spectrum of religious affiliation, young and old, from all corners of the world – come together to experience the magic of one full Shabbat kept together – in full accordance with Jewish law.
Joining in is as simple as 1-2-3.
We’ll also do everything we can to help you partner with us to bring The Shabbat Project to your friends, community or city.
