My dear clients,

I ship the parcels with national post services and express courier services. At this moment there is no delay on delivery in both methods.


All garments are designed and handcrafted by me in my home studio in Prague.

I use natural materials from European factories with sustainable production.

In my work I design timeless models, they will be in your wardrobe for years. I use for them the best sewing techniques with attention to every little part and stitch. Some of them are vintage techniques.

My making time at this moment is about 3-4 weeks.

IF YOUR DELIVERY ADDRESS IS IN UK AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO ORDER SOME ITEM AND ITS VALUE IS ABOVE 135 GBP, PLEASE WRITE ME BEFORE PURCHASE.

Thank You very much for Your support and giving me time to sew your dresses precisely and with care.

My best wishes, stay safe and healthy 🌿🌷🌿

Vintage inspired clothes, handmade by me with love to the nature and care to every client.

Hello and welcome!

I am Galia,I am a christian.
Making clothes is my biggest passion,my talent and my way of trying to bring finesse and joy in every day. I believe there are still women,who like to be feminine and in some way girlish. To feel delicate in beautiful little dress and in the same time to feel free ,to dance,to laugh, to run,to live.

I was born and raised in sunny Bulgaria. I studied fashion design at Art academy Jules Pascen in Sofia. Since 2005 I and my family are feeling blessed to live in one of the most beautiful old cities -Prague. This wonderful place is my inspiration to make my timeless dresses. And joy to make a woman, feel pretty.
My happiness is my inspiration!

This summer I will work in my studio in the Bulgarian countryside. Here the wonderful nature and sunny weather are very inspiring for me.

And I make with pleasure every step of creating my dresses. It begins with drawing,then choosing materials,making the patterns,sewing,photo shooting. Also posting in my blog,communicating with my clients,sending orders by post.
I work alone and I like to have responsibility for every detail ,every stitch,every conversation.
Every dress,top and skirt is homemade with love and care.

Textiles I use are sourced from the local markets,supporting producers and communities in Czech republic and Slovakia, and other European factories , which produce natural materials.

All sewing patterns are made by me. I love to work my models by personal measures,because every woman has unique beautiful body. And the best way to make wonderful and special ,best fitted dress for my client is to work with her measurements.
I also have some models in standart sizes. I made half sizes,as well, for best fit, closest to Made-to-measure clothing.

You can read about the results of my work in references bellow my items.

Please,write to me if You have any questions ,regarding my collection or a custom order with small changes on my models in this retro inspired style. I will be delighted to answer to you ,to help you and to make the perfect dress for you!

Best wishes,
Galia

Frequently asked questions

If the item is Made-to-measure:
After ordering an item and purchasing, I will send to You my instructions and pictures how You can take Your measurements. Measuring takes about 10 min.

Custom and personalized orders

I will be happy to make for you some of my items with some small changes,as well.
For example:
Skirt length; the shape of the neckline; to add or remove sleeves; to add some contrast trimming; to add a brooch or sash...

Care instructions

These are care instructions about every dress, skirt and top in my shop:
- Hand wash or choose some delicate program on the washing machine, 0° to 30° C. Do not spin cycling.
-Do not tumble dry.
-Do not bleach.
-Iron set on "wool": I recommend ironing always through piece of cotton cloth. To prevent the cloth from burning and damaging.
If you are ironing without any cotton cloth between the iron surface and garment, I recommend to set the iron on lower temperature and where it's possible ( for ex. skirt) to ironing on the back side of the fabric.

Imperfections on the linen fabrics

One characteristic of the rustic linen is that, in the weave, there are often “imperfections.”

Linen fabric is created with slight knots and knobbles, slubs, which can be seen as thicker, raised threads on the fabric surface.  These ‘imperfections’ are either a characteristic of the yarn (particularly natural fibres) and come from the spinning or weaving process or created purposely with the intention of giving the fabric an organic, tactile look and feel.
