Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been dabbling in fashion design. Growing up in a communist country if one wanted to look different it was almost a necessity, since most of the apparel in stores were the same – cut into various shades of gloomy. As a 15 year old I fell in love with ballroom dancing.

My interest in textiles turned into a ballroom dress design passion, culminating in an unexpected award at the 1992 World Open Cup in Paris, where my dresses won as the best formation costume design.
Many years later I am back to clothing design. From the combination of textile and visual art I enjoy creating one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art, fit for the goddess and god inside each of us. After all, we are each unique creations who deserve adornments that shine to reveal the beauty within.
