I am originally from Poland where I graduated from the College of Art and studied Fashion Design. I also studied pattern cutting, haute couture, fashion and theatre costumes.
While living in London I took part in the annual International Fashion Week. Sold many of my hand painted scarves and also worked in Harrods.
My adventure with silk painting started in college when I designed fabrics for the collection I presented as my final exam. I discovered that painting in silk gives me the freedom to express my ideas, creating one of a kind art wear. I am fascinated by the way the paint flows on the silk.
In my exciting journey as a fashion designer, I have had the luck to interact with different cultures. I chose Mexico as my home and the country to have my family.
In Baja I have found not only a peaceful living but a great source of inspiration for my designs. For the past 7 years I have been presenting 1 or 2 annual season collections. It has been a fun and nourishing experience to create and put together each one of my fashion shows.
I can only hope that who ever wears my clothing feels the love and happiness that I have poured into them. It is my pleasure to give other people the opportunity to express themselves through this art technique.
