Eve learned the meaning of “chic” from her Milanese Aunt. Her American grandma was a couture sewist . In her twenties, she married and moved to South Africa to build a family together with her husband.
Since moving to New York in 2001, she started to fuse her passion for art and modest fashion , and so More Than Just Figleaves was born.
A self trained sewist, Eve transfers her artistic skills from the paintbrush to the sewing machine. Her creations are born in her Brooklyn residence and manufactured locally.
She has six children and three grandchildren and enjoys spending time with her family during her spare time.
Yonit began her fashion career as an intern at San Diego Model Management and went on to receive certification in fashion styling from the Fashion Institute of Technology.
She currently serves as the head curator for the Fashion Film Network, grand juror at the International Fashion Film Awards, and is founder of modest fashion blog, Miss Mellalina.
Yonit lives with her husband and family in Philadelphia where she continues to create visual and brand content for Modest fashion including More Than Just Figleaves.
