I first heard about Isaac Manevitz and Ben-Amum from Joni Cohen, who, in my humble opinion, is one of the best fashion editors in the media business.
I have known of Joni for years and had the pleasure to work with her during her reign as fashion guru at several magazines. Joni is very modest about her exceptional talents, but I have seen the results of her labors and she is the very best.

When it comes to fashion Joni has the best eye I have ever seen. She told me all about Isaac and his amazing company some years ago. When Joni recommends a designer it is a guarantee of quality and exceptional creations.
The very first chance I had to meet him I did. It was at one of the New York Markets where he was shyly holding court with his many buyers and long time fans.
Besides impeccable manners, Isaac is a charming man with brilliant design ideas. After introducing myself and asking a few questions about his current collection, he was incredibly helpful.
He answered all of my question in great detail. Isaac did not offer a hair accessory line but offered eye popping, mouth dropping bracelets, earrings and necklaces.
Isaac explained to me why he did not have hair accessories, which was disappointing to me because that is my true passion in the world of fashion. However, after just five minutes of chatting with Isaac and I was completely in love with his gorgeous designs.

Maybe because Hairboutique.com is known for hair accessories or everything hair we haven't enjoyed as much success with earrings.
Or maybe it's the fact some people want to hold the actual earrings up to their faces before making the investment. Which can be more challenging when buying over the web.
Regardless of the reason, I sadly decided not to carry Ben's amazing collection of earrings, necklaces or bracelets. Even still, I fondly remember meeting this incredible designer and being stunned by his amazing talent, charm and grace.
