The first thing you’ll notice about David Josef is his yards of charm. Once the sketchpad comes out, so does his sharp design eye. His fashions have appeared in publications like Harper’s Bazaar—donned by none other than supermodel Iman—and he recently outfitted Bill Belichick’s daughter-in-law for her Nantucket nuptials. He can create something from scratch or retool vintage, an asset that comes in handy for his passion: creating modern, modest gowns for Orthodox Jewish brides.
