Hello Ladies, I hope you are enjoying your shopping on LevColection.com. If you want to know a little more about the concept behind Lev Collection, you are in the right place!
My name is Carolina Chana Yaghoubzadeh, the designer and founder of Lev Collection. I was born and raised in Italy in a Jewish & Persian home and I somehow always knew I wanted to become a Fashion Designer. My heritage and background have certainly had a profound influence on my sense of beauty and style, while living in Milan made things easier as well. Being there allowed me to attend one of the best Fashion Schools in the Country, that happened to be only a few subway stops away from my home!
It was just October of 2008 when my family chose to leave everything behind and move to the Big Apple, where everything is possible, and that’s the positive attitude we arrived with! Surely that attitude helped a great deal. Only a few months after we moved here (enough time for me to actually learn some English) I started working as an assistant designer for a big apparel company here in New York City.
As time went by and had to basically start a new life here in the States, I somehow got closer and started learning more about my Jewish heritage, costumes and dress code, and as a girl who loves dressing nicely and fashionable you understand what kind of struggle was that for me! I started looking and searching and I realized that basically nobody makes nice modest fashionable clothing… how can this be?!
I really could not understand or accept that the only option for a girl who for whatever reason wants to cover her cleavage or her arms is a Kiki Riki shirt! I mean, seriously?! I refused to take that path! In my community there are very few people that are into dressing covered and I really wanted to take the next step but I didn’t want anybody around me to look down upon religion or modesty in general. I wanted to show people that you can dress modestly and look beautiful… and there is nothing wrong with it!
Of course being a very determined girl I decided to take this challenge upon my self and started this line. Being the picky and detail oriented person I am it wasn't so easy to find the perfect team to realize this dream in the best way possible, and I’m happy to see how far I've come starting from almost nothing and I hope that all my efforts will help you find that perfect dress that you almost lost hope in!
Enjoy your shopping on LevCollection.com and always stay beautiful!
