Karolina Lankocz, born on 24th of May in Katowice, Poland.
The adventure of my career started in 2009 when I started high school of Fashion in Katowice. I was very into fashion as well as Mathematics. Both subjects played big role in my life. In 2013 I started studing Mathematics in Aberystwyth University in Wales but after few months I realised fashion has won me over even though I enjoyed Maths.
In 2014 I made my "American dream" come true and traveled to California for one year to start my work and study program, I had great opportunity to attend evening finances course.
After returning to Poland I finally started setling down and got my dream job in most luxury bridal store in my city. Working there over a year was incredible experience. I wasn't just selling dresses but was learning how they are made by altering them too. This shop was my second home and I truly loved it! Then I moved to London to continue my career in bridal, I was very curious about expanding my knowledge about bridal market and different nationality brides which next stores gave me. I learnt so much about differences starting from cultural traditions through how many guests it's standard for different countries to be invited, in the end seeing brides spending thousands of pounds for a dress to wear just for few hours as they needed to get change few times!
In my free time after work I was developing my sewing and designing skills. I was looking for interesting people such as photographers, models, hairdressers, make-up artists to collaborate with and make my future more valuable by meeting amazing, passionate people.
One day I received breathtaking message and got invited to showcase my collection during Miss Continential UK 2017. I though I was dreaming but not, it became real! It was one of the most exciting events happening in my entire life!
Couple months later I decided to try getting in touch with some influencers and that's how I started collaborating with Tanya La Gatta (italian showgirl, model, actress, influencer). My first success was making a dress for her for Sanremo Music Festival 2018. Then we both decided to collaborate for Cannes Film Festival 2018 and Venice Film Festival 2018 as future event.
This all motivated me into creating my own brand with unique fashion pieces.
