April 11, 1971], she is one strong lady who has not only become one of the top entrepreneurs in the business world but also has ruled the modeling industry, working with famous models like Kendel Jenner, Naomi CampbellLindsey Wixson, and Sasha Pivovarova. Haart has always managed to be in the headlines for different reasons, and now rumored her split with billionaire entrepreneur, Silvio Scaglia Haart has been trending news.

Julia Haart's Life Before Leaving The Ultra Strict Orthodox Community and Her First Marriage

Born as Julia Leibov in Moscow, Russia, Julia Haart is the eldest of eight children of her parents. She, along with her parents, moved to Austin, Texas, when she was just three, and when she was in the eighth grade, they again relocated to Monsey, New York, the home of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.

She then attended the religious girl school, Bais Yaakov Academy, in Brooklyn and taught herself how to sew and smuggled fashion magazines into her house at the age of sixteen. And when she turned 18, she changed her name to Talia, a Jewish name, in order to blend more in the Haredi community.

The fashion designer tied the knot with her first husband Yosef Hendler at the age of 19 and became Leibov Hendler. While struggling to adapt to the ultra-strict Jewish community, she eventually gave birth to their four children: sons Shlomo & Aron, and daughters Batsheva & Miriam Haart.

Even after all those years, Haart still juggled to live the Orthodox life and even contemplated suicide (starving herself to death or losing weight to 73 pounds). In the Yeshivish Jewish group where women were to dress with extreme modesty and conform to restrictive gender roles, the fashion mogul was often reprimanded for dressing in bright colors and was once pulled into the rabbi’s office for dancing too provocatively.

When her bisexual daughter, Miriam, was being forced into this obedient, quiet, meek woman, Julia finally gathered up the courage to leave the community behind with Miriam. The 5 feet ¼ inch woman eventually started her own shoe company and then became the creative designer in the luxury lingerie company where she met her future husband, Silvio Scaglia Haart.

Julia Haart's $500 Million Net Worth is As Interesting As Her Show, 'My Unorthodox Life'

As per estimating sources, Julia Haart holds a net worth of around $600 million, not bad for a woman who left Monsey, New York, when she was 43 years old to start her life all over again. Less than a decade after fleeing her strict Jewish life, she is now a successful fashion designer and entrepreneur who head a global talent empire called Elite World Group.

Well, the 50-year-old started her career through a wearable luxury shoe brand named after herself despite having no formal design training. She collaborated with a ski boot engineer and a German company that creates an insulation gel used by NASA to design high-quality ultra-comfortable shoes. Her hard work really paid off, and her innovative shoes were sold in 17 different countries which eventually attracted the Italian luxury lingerie company, La Perla.

Then, she sold her company and started working as the creative director of the company. In the fall/winter 2017 show, she designed a La Perla Manor runway extravaganza, where Naomi Campbell, Lindsey Wixson, Sasha Pivovarova, and Kendall Jenner walked in.

Haart then became the co-owner and the chief executive of Elite World Group, the modeling and talent conglomerate which is brought by her now-husband, Silvio Scaglia Haart in March 2019. As per Trend Net Worth, she nearly earns $2 million a year, or $400,000 a month as the CEO and CCO of the talent media company.
