Elie Tahari is an Israeli fashion designer. He is the designer of luxury ready-to-wear clothing and fashion accessories. Elie's company is a global luxury lifestyle brand headquartered in New York City with stores located throughout the world.

Inspired by the era’s dazzling disco culture, Elie Tahari created flirty dance dresses and sensual blouses, debuting his first fashion show in 1977 at the New York City nightclub Studio 54.

In the 1980s, Tahari turned his attention to the tailored suit. He redefined the decade with more office-centric designs as women joined the workforce and the ranks of the business elite. He was admitted to the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 1994. In 1997, he teamed with Andrew Rosen to launch the ready-to-wear label Theory.

The 2000s saw an expansion of his brand into men's ready-to-wear, accessories, jewelry, footwear and home goods. In 2012, Elie Tahari was a guest judge on the America television series Project Runway All Stars which aired on Lifetime. He collaborated with Kohl’s DesigNation in 2014 and launched ET Sport in 2015.

Today, Elie Tahari oversees a global luxury brand, designing collections inspired by his belief that “clothing should let a woman’s true beauty shine through.” Impeccable tailoring, sensual fabrics and unique details continue to characterize the modern, sophisticated collections for which Tahari is renowned.

Tahari has been involved in Spirituality For Kids, an educational non-profit organization founded in 2001, and Children of Chernobyl Foundation. In 2011, he created a limited edition T-shirt to benefit “Key To The Cure” with Saks Fifth Avenue and Friends of Dana-Farber to fight women's breast cancer. Starting in 2012, he worked with the Worldwide Orphans Foundation. He is involved with Save the Garment District, focused on preserving the fashion centrality of New York City.
