Netflix’s new reality series My Unorthodox Life gives an insight into her life now, and also how she previously spent 42 years living in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.
As she got older, she grew uncomfortable with the community’s strict, conservative values – and in particular, watching her free-spirited daughter Miriam be forced to adhere to the same rules that she was.
In 2012, she decided to leave the community and launch a luxury shoe brand that kickstarted her career in fashion.
