I always had a passion for fashion and arts. I started to wear my own designed dresses in the kindergarten as my godmother, who was a machinist, had no other choices than to follow a picky little girl orders who was not willing to go to kindergarten without her frilly dresses and skirts.
As I grown older, I learnt to use the sewing machine and different fabric dying techniques and I started to alter all of my new clothes and had my 'personal fashion show' every day in the school.
In the school years I was learning different art techniques such as enamels, ceramics, graphic arts, photography and painting. I chose to graduate as an artist painter but I never stopped creating my own bespoke outfits. After graduation I decided, I am going to learn fashion design. I have left my art school to be a fashion designer, this was a mayor decision and although I was happy to learn designing, I always felt something was missing. I was missing painting. Therefore I started to experiment with different art techniques and to discover how I can incorporate them in my designs. This is how I first started to paint and dye my own fabrics.
Then I also discovered that I can print my own materials too. It is so amazing! This is when I started to print my best original artworks on my own fabrics, creating something unrepeatable and unique form of fashion and art. I am currently experimenting with different kind of art techniques to use them for my fashion lines. I would like to prove to the world that in fashion you can do anything you want. You can use anything to create stunning and wearable pieces. The only limit is our creativity.

"Fashion is the Highest way of Art"
- Simonetta Sabo
Fashion is in love with art like never before. From clothing design to catwalk show art direction, major labels to boutique houses, the word of fashion is falling over itself to involve important names from a diverse range of the visual arts. It’s hardy surprising — after all what is fashion if not wearable art.
Fashion and Art have always been walking side by side, strengthening and inspiring each other.
I always try to find new art techniques to incorporate them in my designing process. I am trying to prove that If you have imagination there is no limit in fashion. You can create fashionable, artistic pieces from everything, from papers, packaging to bottle caps or CD's. Although if you are not up for unconventional materials, there are still possibilities to use your artist talent like graphic designing, drawing or ceramics.
I learnt painting in high school and I was playing with the idea of being an artist but I never could imagine my life without being a fashion designer too. Therefore I created my artistic style, where I can feel free to create and share my passion with the word. Take a look on my journey and see how I create fashion and art.
This is my passion, my work, my life. Enjoy!
