“I find my inspiration in some unusual places,” said Israeli fashion designer Hed Mayner. With a global reputation and designs sold to more than 50 boutiques in the world’s fashion capitals of Paris, Milan, Tokyo, New York, and Los Angeles, Mayner still enjoys working in his rundown studio in Israel. He adores the realistic lifestyle of everyday Israeli people making a way with a small budget. “Here, there’s the freedom to do what you want because there’s nothing here. There’s no history of fashion, really, so you can do what you want. It’s freeing,” he said in an interview with Times of Israel, a Jerusalem-based newspaper used to document developments in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world.
