The Israeli Behind Mrs. Obama’s Wardrobe

On the morning after the swearing in, fashion blogs are drooling over Michelle Obama’s inauguration-day wardrobe: a glittery yellow suit by Isabel Toledo for the oath-taking, and an ethereal, single-strapped ivory gown by Jason Wu for the galas.

The woman behind the First Lady’s sartorial choices is said to be the Israeli-born Ikram Goldman, 41. She is the owner of the Chicago boutique Ikram, which sells designs by Toledo and Wu, among others (including Narciso Rodriguez, who designed the red-and-black dress that Mrs. Obama wore on election night).
