For as far back as we can remember, we’ve had a passion for clothes. In the summer of 2010 we took the first step towards a lifelong dream.

We’d moved to Brooklyn in 1986, learning a language and culture that was very different than our birthplace of Jerusalem. Our father, a pro soccer player in Israel, started a children’s wear company out of an Oldsmobile station wagon. The living room of our humble three bedroom apartment on Ocean Parkway was the warehouse, and he worked tirelessly to provide a living for our family. Sports were a big part of our upbringing. Knicks vs. Bulls, Connors vs. Sampras. It was a time for us to hang around the TV with our family and friends. Looking back, it was the American Dream.

When we graduated high school, it was a given that we’d go into the family business instead of college. We learned from the ground up: unloading trailers in extreme NY weather, making deliveries with the company van and managing sales. When we weren't working, we spent most of our time in Manhattan, collecting clothes, going to rock shows and doing graffiti.

After working for our father for 10 years, honesty and integrity were embedded in us. But it was our mother who taught us taste. Amethyst crystals, graphic printed bedding, Chinese tea sets, ancient books about mysticism -- all elements that inspire Ovadia today. From her, we learned that details matter.

We didn’t go to fashion school. We didn't intern at a fashion house. We'd never designed clothes. The odds were against us but because of our love for product, the will and passion to succeed was strong. The clothes couldn’t just be anything. They needed to be thoughtful and carry a spirit. They needed to give you that warm feeling inside like when holding a hot cup of tea, while capturing all of the energy of New York, our home.

As the baton is passed to our generation, we carry through the values and beliefs of the past and build on that with our own perspective. It’s our mission at OVADIA to elevate the spirit.
