In a Forbes interview, Lahav shared how technology and data-driven approach has helped the brand penetrate the global arena. "Galia Lahav continues to look to the paradoxes of the connected consumer to guide its data-driven, creative-centric approach, forging innovative inroads deeper into the ever-expanding social worlds of the most demanding (and fashionable) of all connected consumers."
