Fashion is a state of being; who you are, what you represent and your deepest thoughts and feelings. It is a place where style meets tradition and where creativity has no limits and never ends.
Every stylish person has their own definition of fashion, since having style is an individual choice and is a reflection of the persona itself.
By wearing something different and with style, you create fashion. It is very important to know how to wear your clothes and wear it with attitude. There is little sense in wearing a clothing piece in which you feel trapped. It is like putting a circle coat on a triangle, trying to cover something, the end result is absurd.
The most important thing is to wear clothes in which you feel comfortable, a piece that expresses your personality in the best way possible. Let your clothes be your second skin. You can create fashion. Everything you need is to be unique and different. Everything that is different is rare. Let me help you be different.
“It all began with the need to express my thoughts and feelings through creation and having fun, but also from seeking the magical, imaginary, beautiful… Creating fashion designs as a form of applied art has a double bond: it gives a life impulse and offers pleasure to the designer and spectator – the one to give it life and wear it.” – Antonija Ristovska
Antonija Ristovska was born 04 July 1963 in Strumica, Macedonia. She showed her affinities towards fashion design as early as the age of 14. Until 1994 fashion design is her hobby, research and a learning process. It is the same year she establishes her fashion atelier, where she designs her collections and custom made orders for clients.
Macedonian folk art is a cultural phenomenon that will not leave you indifferent. The wealth of forms and expressions resulting from emotional and artistic response to the great cultural and historical processes, which evokes in the designer Antonjia Ristovska inspiration for creating contemporary designs that bear the stamp of the Macedonian folklore treasure. Inspired by the colors and ornaments of the Macedonian folk costumes, stylized and applied in a moment of the old and new, using the techniques of the past and present, she creates designs with a particular hallmark of ethno-style glamour. Through her mental journey in time and space that spans the past and future, she creates contemporary creations with a special mark. Elements from tradition, hand woven fabrics, hand-made lace and pleats, filigree, beads and semiprecious stones embroidery, handmade applications and printed fabrics are all part of the brand.
Creating designs for the contemporary woman, dresses with elegant style, yet glamorous and made from the finest fabrics.
