These styles are meant to speak to the strength and femininity of women across the globe and will be pieces worn over and over again, year after year.
We are so excited to announce that Andrea has been featured in her local House Home magazine!
Andrea was born in Budapest, Hungary during the Cold War. In World War II, Russia was occupying Hungary. The communist reign and Cold War changed generations of lifestyles, including that of Andrea's parents and her own. Andrea learned how to live “outside of the box” expertly. She was absolutely focused at the very early age 3 on dimensional designs, from matchboxes she built (made in Russia Barbie/black hair) doll houses and sewed dresses. Later, she started her own collection.
She started to sew, knit, crochet at a very early age of 5 or 6. She cut out patterns without directions to make outfits for her dolls and for herself. She could see all her directions and steps as three dimensions in her mind. She only had to transfer her visions into real life to make all her designs come true. The unique creativity she's uses overflows with passion. In Hungary in her teens she started to study with art professors and fashion designers. She didn’t have to push herself places and she showed off her works. Coming to the US was another lifestyle change for Andrea. Her career changed into one of survival mode. As she began to acquaint herself to her new adopted world, she had two boys. Her boys are old enough now that she can start her career again with that same “outside of the box” determination she previously had.
