Her creations are simple leather collars or hair bands
yet they can be described as pure flights of fancy.
Entirely handmade these lavish ornaments are created
from small feather-shaped leather bits carefully assembled
to replicate wings.

”I take inspiration from different textures, animals and nature
in general. My pieces come directly from my head 'cause 
I usually don't draw and plan things in advance, which is 
quite unfamiliar in the fashion industry...
Once the idea popped up I make a prototype, then wear it for
a day to test it out and by living in my own pieces I'm able to
experience a complete feel of the garment and therefore
evaluate how much its outcome would be favorable”...

Fanciful accessories you can easily 'dress up' a plain
t-shirt with and look awesome without feeling overdressed
at all, they can be purchased on Not just a label website.
Your whimsical accessory is just a click away, though.
