is a designer of that rare and wonderful combination of traits: an intellectual mind, a creative soul and an entrepreneurial spirit.
A pianist, a linguist and a global traveller, Nevena grew up in an artistic and academic family in Sofia, Bulgaria, and learned to sew in childhood, helping her mother, a teacher and a talented dressmaker. Nevena became a designer only after many years as a translator working in German and the Scandinavian languages.
“At the age of 27, I realised that I was missing the most creative process of translating: understanding what makes someone an individual, what moves them and touches their soul, and being able to “translate” all that into a gown,” she says. “That, for me, means far more than simply covering a body with a precious piece of clothing.”
A perfectionist, a sensitive soul and an impulsive, energetic designer, Nevena’s clothes are created with the client at their heart, drawing together some of the world’s most exquisite fabrics and her own distinctive, carefully proportioned designs to offer a bespoke, refined couture wardrobe to make you look and feel nothing less than beautiful.
