A little Q&A with the designer:
Q. What is your design inspiration?
MAGDALENA: My inspiration is always changing, most of the time it’s not something I could put into words. It is never a person or one thing, but multiple ideas translated in the moment.
KAROLINA: The materials and elements I work with.
Q. Tell me two little known facts about you
1. I make up songs about what I’m doing or thinking.
2. I like silent mornings.
1. I collect nesting dolls.
2. I like to vintage shop.
Q. Describe your personal style
MAGDALENA: I’d rather get my day started, than spend time getting ready for it. So, very easy, no clothes that need ironing (jeans, tshirts), fast hairstyles (buns, ponytails, braids), no make-up.
KAROLINA: Casual and comfortable with bold & unique shoe choices!
Q. What is your favorite article of clothing
MAGDALENA: Anything I’ve worn in, the more holes the more I’m attached. I like wearing clothes that have a story. But the only piece I would be heartbroken to part with is our grandmother’s cocktail ring that she got from grandpa for their 30th anniversary.
KAROLINA: I’m much more into accessorizing... I have a leather tribe inspired necklace that our parents made back in their leather manufacturing days.
Q. Favorite vacation spot
MAGDALENA: I try to see new places and don’t often vacation at the same spot. Although my sister and I have spent a lot of time camping, I’ve always liked getting away from the city and spending time surrounded by nature.
KAROLINA: Marfa, Texas
Q. When did you know that you were going to design bridal?
MAGDALENA: I’ve been interested in fashion design since sewing alongside our parents and watching Fashion Television as a young child. I decided on bridal because of the detail and time that goes into a wedding gown.
KAROLINA: When Magdalena and I decided to create a brand together.
Q. Who is your style icon?
MAGDALENA: Diana Vreeland. Editor in Chief for Vogue Magazine in the 60’s.
KAROLINA: Helena Bonham Carter. She has her personal style that isn’t influenced by trends.
Q. If you could dress any celebrity, who would it be?
MAGDALENA & KAROLINA: Cate Blanchett
Q. What is the last great book that you read?
MAGDALENA: Freddie Mercury, The Definitive Biography
KAROLINA: Shocking Life, The Autobiography of Elsa Schiaparelli
Q. Any advice for brides?
MAGDALENA: Don’t take too much advice :)
KAROLINA: It’s your day, don’t try to please everyone. You can lose your own style & vision quickly that way.
