Fashion designer Karnit Aharoni grew up in Israel and New Zealand, which gave her a kick start as a world traveller. After working for several international brands such as Donna Karan in NYC and Ermenegildo Zegna in Italy amongst others, and living in London, Milan and New York, she then moved to France and decided to found her own eponym brand.
As a child Karnit took many desert trips with her parents, sand dunes, date trees and beduins are part of the brand’s DNA, she fell in love with the fairy tales dream atmosphere of quietness dryness and ancient feel. The dune lines, grace, sand and the elegance of beduins with their traditional clothes, have always been a great source of inspiration.
The Galabia, traditionally worn by the nomads of the desert, was revisited and designed for the modern nomad with its feel good style, and the date tree with it’s beauty, savage strength, and fruitfulness, is a recurring motif of the collection.
The ancient mythical dragon is our symbol, embroidered on each of the Karnit Aharoni products, representing the preciousness of the brand. It’s origins and inspiration comes from an ancient Russian jewel. A family heirloom worn by Karnit’s grandmother: a strong and inspiring woman in a long line of equally powerful and active women, who pave their own paths.
