Tali Kogan, Presenter

Tali Kogan is the founder of Tel Aviv Couture. As a personal stylist, event producer, and business consultant, she combines her expertise in fashion and lifestyle with her unwavering love for Israel in every Tel Aviv Couture project. 

The power of fashion  - "Changing The World Through Fasion". Click here to read about Tel Aviv Couture's project with Israeli fashion designer Michal Hadas.

Founded in 2007, Tel Aviv Couture is a growing platform that gives a stage to up and coming international artists, showcasing Tali’s collaborations with brands from around the world as an ambassador, merchandising looks, and helping designers break into the American market. 

Tali’s keen eye for fashion was cultivated by the heavy couture influence of her Russian and Ukrainian roots. When she later moved to Tel Aviv, she gained professional styling experience working in the local fashion industry on the heels of her 3 year leadership as a ranking officer in the elite Israeli Defence Force. 

She went on to channel her strong management skills building successful careers in travel, real estate and accounting. Tali’s sharp business mind coupled with her passion for design makes her a powerhouse of both brains and beauty.

Today, the proof is in her achievements as a multi-faceted businesswoman. Living in Chicago, Tali began to help an Israeli designer friend launch her business in the States and has since opened up the American market for numerous international designers, including collaborations with top Israeli innovators such as Maskit, Hidas, SisterM, Shelly Dahan, Ciporkin, and more. Her involvement in premiere events for Chicago Fashion Week, Israel Bonds and JUF has garnered her respect as an influential member of the Chicago community. 

A fashion expert in merchandising both online and in brick and mortar showrooms, Tali is committed to sharing the latest trends and brands to her readers while inspiring them to use style as a means of self-expression. In her personal styling sessions, Tali goes “shopping” in her clients’ closets, teaching them to use what they have and let their true selves shine through. 

Specializing in one-on-one styling services and special event production, Tali is based in Chicago, and is available for bookings throughout the country and internationally.
