Orna Lalo is a graduate of Shenkar College for Fashion and Textile. She began her professional career in 1990 designing distinctive fashion accessories. Her unique look and imaginative eye brought her much attention by leading fashion designers for custom work on the runway. Color, shape and texture play a significant role in her original designs.
As Orna shares, “People ask me what inspires my creations. So, it’s this: all the dresses I always wanted to wear. Everything I always wanted to be. My dream that one day I’ll stand on a big stage and I’ll be a singer. When I design, I try to capture that feeling of longing. I always think about the person who will be using my products, I want my colorful creations to smile at you and make you feel good.”
