BEHIND THE SCENE
Like book with a thousand tempting pages...a novel of passion and integrity, memorable and sincere...a storybook of colourful dreams...my dolls tell stories of lyric memories of childhood. I set them off into the world to spread the magic of starlit skies and dreamy clouds, nostalgia of raindrops and innocence of the summer breeze. I'm in love with old fashioned stories, myths and legends, miracles of nature and unconditional goodness and I still have a lot of wonders up my sleeve.
How did it all begin?
Graduating clothing and textile design, I tried to reveal the symbolism of clothes in myths, fairytales and legends in my final thesis. While running the art workshop, in one fateful moment, I created a wooden angel which put a spell on my career path and simply enchanted my first clients...and that is how it all begun.
The story is still unfolding...as there are no boundaries to what my imagination can inspire and my hands can create.
What inspires me?
Sometimes, it is a starlit sky, a scent of wood, whisper of a tree or a glittering sparkle...and the magic appears.
Sometimes, I run into fabric long forgotten in my closet or fall in love with the way the material feels under my fingers...and the magic appears.
Sometimes, it is a gesture, surprise from the nature, a loving glance...and the magic appears.
Just like the life is in a constant motion around me, every day I bring a new dream to life.
Who likes my dolls the most?
Each doll has a soul, its diverse character, a life of its own formed by colourful thoughts...that is where the beauty lies. And that is what makes them ageless and timeless. They surprise the aesthetes, enchant the romantics, melt mothers' hearts and awaken the imagination of kids. They soften fathers and bring closer couples in love. They are appreciated by the interior decorators and capture the thoughts of theatre lovers. They rejuvenate grandparents and fulfil dreamers....
They seem to be hard to resist.
Where do I create?
In the very heart of Zagreb, you can hear a sewing machine buzz day and night in my fantasy studio. I am creating unwearyingly.
To show my creations in true light and give them a world of their own, I opened a fairytale store close by. Enter the magical world and you will find a lyrical melancholy and utter happiness inside it. You will feel the natural life energy interlaced in a whirlpool of colours and patterns, vintage styles and contemporary fashion trends, romantic costumes and alluring images which irresistibly draw attention.
Come in and meet fairies with angel wings and a seductive glance, cheeky sirens and charming creatures from the wood, lovable dreamers and marine sea lovers...playing together games of growing up. Fragile and luxury, proud in their uniqueness and distinction, unspoiled and sincere, helping us remember how things used to be and how wonderful the nature is.
