Welcoming Paulina Tsvetanova, Founder & CEO of Paulina's Friends. 📢
A selfmade entrepreneur from Berlin, fashion designer, author, transformation artist, generalist, serendipity expert.
PAULINA’S FRIENDS is a serendipity workshop, a business that most often resembles a traveling circus. Born out of necessity, uncertainty and the urge for creativity, autonomy and freedom, first as a concept store in Bikini Berlin, later as a showroom in Berlin-Mitte. The missing financial resources were curse and blessing at the beginning of her self employment. So she was virtually forced to go unorthodox, unconventional ways beyond the mainstream. Its concept unfolds in the chaos of permanent change. It needs no concept, no boundaries, no focus, no goal. Above all, PAULINA’S FRIENDS owes its success to the failure and the game with happy coincidences. Pure Life!
We are very honored to have her extraordinary designs during our online fashion stream!
Make sure you visit her website for more information : https://www.paulinasfriends.com/en/

Caring for sustainable products is not only in fashion, thanks to MarosEtti, it's now fashionable.

Lets Welcome Designer ANNIGJE for Diversity Fashion week Live-stream-2020
@erikknegt and @annie_sturing , 'designers from the North' and creative entrepreneurs in the arts. The first ANNIGJE bag was made 10 years ago. A planned vacation was canceled at the last minute and suddenly a new idea was born the next morning: the bag !
Within a few weeks there was material, machines, a workshop and the first bag. Then came the voyage of discovery to Art Markets and Galleries. Participation in Art Markets takes place in the Netherlands and Germany. The home base is Micksart Collectief and the bags are also available in The Hague and Barneveld, at Exhibitions in various galleries in the country and in the museum shop at Landgoed Nienoord. Many colorful ANNIGJE's have left the Atelier in recent years to a new owner. Even famous Dutch people wear a colorful creation of ANNIGJE.
All bags are still made in our own workshop and there is a men's line: ANNO. It is also possible to have a bag made on request or participate in a Workshop: Customize your own bag. An enthusiastic collaboration with Micksart Collectief has developed in Emmen. Together with Erik Knegt, their creative buddy, they developed the MI & ANN label. They transform brand jeans jackets into Art jeans. In the Gallery they have set up a extra Atelier. Both the jackets and the bags are always unique! In addition, in Emmen there is a Gallery, Ateliers and an Art Square, together 1000 m2 of Art Experience. Every 8 weeks there is a surprising new Exhibition with accompanying Vernissage.
