Exclusive Interviews with Top Jewish Models - Sharon Ganish
Day 6 of Shalom Life's Exclusive Interviews with Top Jewish Models Feature.
Our readers really loved the format we introduced during the Artists feature- asking the same questions to everyone involved. It allowed for us to not only learn about these icons, but also have fun comparing answers. We have carried over this same format to the Model and Sports profiles. Enjoy!
Sharon Ganish, 28, is an Israeli-American model. She was born in Los Angeles to Jewish parents, and her family moved to Israel when she was 3 years old. She began modeling at the age of 16 but later moved to New York City where she was signed by the Clear agency, which until then represented male models only.
In 2005, Ganish was chosen to be the face of Israeli make-up company "Ilmakiage" and has appeared in advertisements for Versace, for whom she has also walked the catwalk. Her other runway credits include Allesandro Dell'Acqua, Balenciaga, Coccapani, DSquared2, Emilio Pucci, Emmanuel Ungaro, Iceberg, La Perla, and Stella McCartney.
