Despite their young age, the designers have already been in the spotlight.

Bartolotta & Martorana is a fresh and modern brand. Their dresses are like self-portraits. In perfect balance between dreams and concreteness, between ideal and real.

The Blake Mill Philosophy They don’t follow fashion. What they do is something different. Their design shirts stand out from the crowd. To find inspiration they started from the question that was perplexing: Why are there so many striped shirts and checked shirts and polka dot shirt/ Can a polka dot really be the apex of design? A dot? So they looked around and found inspiration in the most obvious place. The the world around them. They found patterns in the malaria virus, the human chromosome, in Japanese gardens and in spiral galaxies. They looked where others haven’t. And in doing so they set themselves one very simple test: is this design truly original? Blake Mill doesn’t just create patterns. The tell stories.

The Essentials range for everyday style and the Bold shirts for when you really want to make an impression. The Bold shirts showcase the patterns to their fullest […]

THEO: presented at Kiev Fashion Days

Ukrainian up and coming label THEO presented their FW18/19 collection during Kiev Fashion Days. The new collection is ready to be seen in out showroom. This is what the Designer, Teo Dekan had to say about his new collection: In my work, I’m in constant search of a “perfect female wardrobe”, research the nature of HER, THEO Woman. HER personality, HER feelings and emotions, HER character become clearer and more nuanced with each collection. The new THEO collection Fall-Winter 2018/19 is the result of my immersion into the style of THEO Woman. The main idea is “One collection to suit all, and unique for each and every one.” THEO Woman is absolutely natural, SHE doesn’t strike a pose or crave attention. SHE is rarely interested in what others think of her, SHE is busy with HER own emotion and HER fresh experience from HERSELF and HER new outfits. HER choice doesn’t take much time, as SHE dresses for HERSELF. The magic of HER originality is in elimination of standards. SHE never dresses for an occasion, at the same time SHE is always appropriately dressed. SHE doesn’t showcase. SHE observes. Observes HER feelings, HER experience and HERSELF. SHE is honest with HERSELF. […]
