– Tell us something about yourself and your company?
– My path to the world of fashion was not easy. To begin with, I’m a self-taught designer.
I still remember my first piece, which I created when I was 17 years old.
Those time I sewed everything, literally, by hand – without a sewing machine. My sister was my muse and a model.
My parents did not wanted to see my future in the fashion industry and strongly advised me to change activities and get a more practical education in order to have a good and stable job in the future.
I agreed with them, but never gave up my passion for the fashion design. My love only grew and became stronger and stronger every day. I was willing to give up everything in order to create my own brand and breathe life into my creations.
