Founder and Art Director
My name is Michal Portman. I am 30 years old living in Holon, right outside of Tel Aviv. I love, live & breath fashion from childhood. I was born in Kiev, Ukraine to a fashionable mamma which started it all! Growing up I adored “Sex in the city” (am nicknamed Michal Bradshaw because I remind my friends of Carrie in my fashion taste and personality) just for the sake of fashion – that was the real story… my inspiration! Then I realized there’s no other way but starting my own blog – Matryoshka – where I started writing about fashion and lifestyle for women who love life and themselves. Matryoshka? That’s the famous Russian doll – each doll represents a different aspect of my personality and fashion sense. My blog is about new fashion trends, combining pieces from the flea market and brand names, self-nurturing and the good life… Due to my blog and its contents, I receive many invitations to launch parties and try not to miss any! On top of that, I have a degree in behavioral science, majoring in human resource management which definitely helped me in personal communication with others. All of the above are just the basis of my willingness to fit in to the fashion scene but most importantly is my love of fashion, the way I express it and the collaboration with people who put it all together in a magical way.
