"Independent of time and space, the runner becomes his message." -S. Penn

I've always been fascinated by clothes and curious about the way people dress. I perceive the communication between wearer's personality, a garment and its environment as an open dialogue without words - a wordless statement - a manifestation of free speech.
Designing clothes is my addiction and i'm always ready to satisfy my creative need. I usually find inspiration in the general wonderfulness of life - in the moon in the sky, in a heavy music fueled by strong emotions, in happy accidents... I'm glad that i'm able to express my self through my work and let the garments speak for me and for the people who decide to wear them.

I have shown my works in a number of national and international fashion shows, competitions, exhibitions and events like Designblok, Prague; Aspen AIDS benefit fashion show, Colorado; the international AoF competition and symposium in San Francisco, California:

My art works and garments reside in private collections and wardrobes across the world.
