Tell us about yourself 
I was born in a village near Warsaw where tradition decrees that each baby must choose from a selection of objects to determine its future. I reached out and touched the scissors and was soon making clothes for myself and school friends, adding my own creative spin to designs I loved from magazines. 

After moving to England, I was spotted by embroidery designer Cathryn Avison whose film credits include Maleficent, Harry Potter and Disney’s Cinderella. I made and embroidered dresses and cashmere for the Avison fashion label before I launched my own. 

Where do you find your inspiration? 
I’m known primarily for my embroidered gossamer dresses for which I’m inspired by the ethereal and vibrant colours of the countryside around my West Sussex home. It’s the epitome of a perfect English summer day. 
I put my heart into every single gown. Each one takes many hours of detailed work. I want women to feel exceptional on their wedding day, confident that no one will ever be wearing the same dress. 

Tell us more about your new collection 
It really is the epitome of intricacy and craftsmanship with whispers of fairy stories and countryside nuptials. It harks back to the days of romantic weddings in historical novels and includes a range of gowns from the beautifully simple to the highly ornate. 
I colourwash and embroider natural fabrics to create this fairtytale style, the chiffons and silk move with each individual bride. This new collection is more fitted than past designs, yet still floaty and flexible. The material moves like waves in the wind. Each dress makes a personal statement with ideas from the bride.
