What is Julia Haart's net worth?
Haart's journey truly began at 43, when she decided to leave behind a life she knew but was not comfortable living. She began a career that she had a passion for. Without any contacts and professional training, Haart made millions. A source close to Haart said, her estimated net worth is at $600 million.
A self-made woman, Haart left the church, kickstarted her shoe brand before collaborating with Italian luxury lifestyle company La Perla. After being appointed creative director at the said fashion house, she designed Kendall Jenner's 2017 Met Gala dress, the one with 85,000 crystals, Nicki Swift reported. Soon after, she met her now-husband Silvio Scaglia and they began working together at the Elite World Group, of which she is the CEO.
Haart has pretty much been a one-woman show but that doesn't stop her from acknowledging the help she has received over the years. "I had investors who helped me, but it was a string of miracles and meeting people," she told People and added: "Like the person who produced my shoes, I met on an airplane. I found the factories in Italy myself, and I did the public relations, the sales — everything."
Haart was highly inspired and motivated by the single life documented in 'Sex and the City'. "It was [about] women living on their own. And they were making their own money, they had their own apartments, and I was like, 'Whoa, is that a thing? People do that in that world? That is unbelievable," she told ET Online. Now, the fashion mogul resides in New York City's plus Tribeca neighborhood with Scaglia, and her four kids Batsheva, Shlomo, Aron, and Miriam. She drives a Rolls Royce and indulges in high-end fashion.
'My Unorthodox Life' will premiere on Netflix on July 14, Wednesday.
