Yulia Leibov was born in Moscow in 1971. At age 3, Leibov and her immediate family immigrated to Rome, then to Vienna, before settling in Austin, Texas at age five. Leibov's parents were strict followers of the Heimishe yeshivishe sect of Ultra-Orthodox Judaism. At age 11 Leibov and her family moved to the insular Chasidic community in Monsey, New York. Leibov attended Bais Yakkov Girls school. After graduating Leibov became a teacher of ultra orthodox Jewish philosophy. After leaving the community in 2013, Haart founded her shoe company, Julia Haart. In 2016, she joined La Perla as Creative Director. In 2019, she became CEO and CCO of Elite World. She currently lives in New York with her husband Silvio Scaglia.
Julia Haart the brand
In 2013, Haart launched her shoe collection, creating a high heeled shoe that evenly distributes pressure across the entire foot. To do this, she partnered with an Italian ski boot engineer and a German company that creates a gel used to insulate the NASA space station.
Haart had two global patents pending relating to the comfort and wearability of her shoe design.
Following her appointment as Creative Director of La Perla, Haart launched a new approach to ready-to-wear for the company. At La Perla, Haart created the first stretch Leavers Lace, and launched a collection of ready-to-wear with built-in support. Pieces were sold both in dress size and bra size.
