About me / About business or organisation:
I was born in Poland and moved to live in UK in 2001.

I always had a huge passion for clothes although growing up in a communist and post-communist country gives you little else but empty shelves...however there always was paper, scissors and her paper dolls. I lived in their world, designing their lives and more important their clothes.
My favorite doll 'Beata’ always had to have the prettiest dress as she was so special - black hair, nice fringe and that spotted red dress.

In 2008 I graduated from University as an accountant. As much as I like my numbers I always wanted to be more creative...yet if you start becoming a ‘creative accountant’ it usually leads to a fraud case.

In 2010 I took a part in Leeds Fashion Show. I had never sketched and hardly ever sewn anything but an Ikea cushion.
I drew the clothes I really loved and then submitted them to the Leeds Fashion Show panel. They liked them and suddenly I was in.

Many, many hours of joy have passed since then. The pictures I have made in my head have been transferred into real clothing and I could not be happier.
Suddenly sleeping seemed like a waste of time, eating an inconvenience and thinking about everyday life was just so ‘boring’
