Elie Tahari

For more than 40 years, Elie Tahari has been crafting mens- and womenswear, and it shows. Recently, Elie Tahari's collections have expanded to include women's shoes, sunglasses and accessories, but he got his start in the New York City garment industry in the 1970s after emigrating from Israel. The years he spent scuffing his soles on New York City sidewalks are evident in his work — deep, elaborate and saturated with story.
