Childhood & Early Life

Yotam Solomon was born on March 28, 1987, a second generation Israeli. His grandparents had emigrated to Israel from Austria and Hungary after World War II.

He grew up in Israel, studying art and music. A viola prodigy, Yotam moved to Los Angeles to study his instrument, attending ‘Beverly Hills High School’ and graduating from ‘Santa Susana High School’.

He excelled at his musical studies, earning the ‘National Orchestra Award’ in 2005. After high school, he attended ‘FIDM for Fashion Design’, graduating with honors.

Career

Yotam's first real job was a pattern-making position for a men’s label. This position inspired him to begin to design his own label. He first presented at LA Fashion Week in October 2007 with his ‘Spring-Summer 2008 Ready to Wear and Footwear Collection’. He has since presented successfully at several Fashion Weeks both in LA and New York.

Yotam started the label he named for himself in July 2007. The motto for this brand is 'Slip into the extraordinary'. The line focuses on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and personal comfort while increasing awareness of social and ecological issues. The line accomplishes this goal by using environmentally friendly, natural materials.

In May 2010, Solomon became a spokesperson for ‘LG Electronics’, teaming up with spokeswoman Victoria Beckham to create a capsule line inspired by the ‘LG Lotus Elite’. At the end of this campaign, this line of classic clothing was presented at the ‘LG Fashion Touch event’, hosted by Beckham and Eva Longoria in West Hollywood.

In Fall, 2010, 'Women's Wear Daily' announced that he had launched a diffusion footwear line titled ‘YOTAM SOLOMON II’. Solomon's Fall 2010 collection, entitled 'Native American Collection' was presented at a private event in the Hollywood Hills.

In September 2010, he released a new line nicknamed the ‘BP Oil Spill’ line. This collection of clothes and shoes, as the name tells, features items that are loosely inspired by oil slicked animals affected by the spill. Proceeds from the sale of this line go toward fundraising for the NRDC and ‘Defenders of Wildlife organizations’.

On Earth Day, 2011, Solomon presented a line designed for the Dasani (Coca-Cola) company. The line included dresses made of live plants and florals, representing Dasani's commitment to create a plant based bottle for their water. ‘E! Entertainment’ called Yotam a 'super-star designer' for his living clothing collection.

In March 2012, as a part of ‘BREATHE LA’s ‘Attire to Inspire’ fashion fundraiser at the L.A. Live Conga Room, he showcased a collection of sky-blue fabric that was intended to change color when exposed to heat, reflecting the environmental impact of climate change. This corresponds with ‘BREATHE LA's’ mission for clean air and healthy lungs in Los Angeles County.

Major Works

In 2007, Solomon was the youngest designer to present at ‘LA Fashion Week’. He was just 20 years old. He has since gone on to present different lines both in LA and New York.

He himself has stated that his greatest accomplishment so far has been having ‘British Vogue’ write that he ..."remind audiences that showmanship and high-fashion are in fact still intact in California".
