The Story of Alembika
Alembika was founded in 2005 by fashion designer Hagar Alembik, a graduate
of the Shenkar School of Design, and Judith Fadlon PhD, an anthropologist.
Alembika offers a collection suited to women of all ages, specializing in the
middle and large size range, to which Alembika’s layered look is especially flattering.
Alembika designs and manufactures exclusive, high fashion clothing
as well as an avant-garde line of leather bags and accessories,
also designed by Hagar Alembik.
The company has 13 flagship stores across Israel and the line is available
at hundreds of exclusive boutiques around the globe – in the USA, Canada,
France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Ireland, Holland, Belgium & Australia.
What we at Alembika believe about women’s fashion…
At Alembika we would like you to feel comfortable with your body
Not the body you’re working on, fantasizing about, or wish to have
The one you have right now
The way you are and not the way you “ought” to be
We feel that “ought to” belongs to the past
Today in a postmodern world there is no such thing as “acceptable” or “unacceptable”
There is only a multiplicity of choices.
Your real power in this new world
Lies in the opportunity to choose what is right for you
Fashion that is therapeutic
We, like you, believe that the essence of femininity lies in flexibility, change and flow
We offer you clothes that understand that
We offer you fashion that treats your body with respect
Fashion that covers it with love
Fashion that is therapeutic for body and soul
We accept you just the way you are.

Shape inspired by you for you
“We stay true to a changing world, fusing shapes and silhouettes with an urban flair. i use form, color and texture to create movement and vitality so you can feel comfortable in combinations that reflect personal character and mood. My goal is to keep creating new, yet timeless, designs that enable you to walk with confidence, presence and poise.
I am inspired by urban colors and shapes, city structures, dramatic compositions and by the outstanding nature around us. I am inspired by women who are not afraid to make new statements. Women who are daring. A wrap draped on a new angle, unexpected combination of fabrics, patterns or clasps that offer the wearer comfort, humor and fashion confidence.
I am inspired by you!
