Eva Borherte

Dana Jasinkeviča

“The “1/2 sweet” coat collection has its roots in the story of Alice in Wonderland. The collection is like a story about two completely different realities. One side of a designer coat has minimalistic tones. The other side is bright and attractive.”

Ērika Rudika un Elīna Gorjačkina

“The duo of these two designers presents their “Gismonda” collection. The idea was inspired by modernism – this art style is associated with fairy tales and mysticism. It displays fineness, lightness, sinuous shapes and natural forms. Every piece of clothing bears individual style.”
