andrea_1.jpgJewish ladies are the dominant force in the style industry, according to an article in the LA Times. Not that the Times said it like that, but well, we can read the names and make some conclusions…

Rachel Zoe created the now ubiquitous 1970s glamazon style for Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie last summer…. Andrea Lieberman’s multicultural sensibility has guided Gwen Stefani’s stage costumes, as well as her popular L.A.M.B. clothing line.

It seems that Jewish Machers—Calvin, Ralph, and Alberto—have some real competition from these fashion balabustas.

These Jewish ladies are defining the style for whole armies of Americans, as other Jewish fashionistas have been doing since we set up garmet shops on the Lower East Side. Though Lieberman has a very interesting journey…

Lieberman may have earned her styling stripes working with Gwen Stefani, but she actually has a formal design education (a rarity in the image-making industry), having graduated from Parsons School of Design in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in fashion. Instead of jumping on the Seventh Avenue track, she bought a plane ticket to Africa and stayed for two years.
