Ania Zofia’s creations accentuate the women’s sensuous flow of movement while maintaining a soft feminine look. The styles are meant to flatter a woman’s body. The main goal is to deepen the meaning of the special day.
Pure silk – sensuous to the touch while giving pleasure to the skin and leaving a feeling of comfort and well being.
The beauty is in you. Let us reveal it.
She opened her first atelier in New York in 1985 then later in Montreal, she produced designs inspired by the ideas of European artisans but influenced by American style and taste, under the label Ania Zofia.
She entered the market with a very original collection of leather and suede evening wear at the Gallery of Wearable Art in New York’s SoHo district. Later, her hand painted silk creations have placed her in some of the best specialty boutiques throughout the United States and Canada.
“I only design clothes I would feel comfortable wearing myself. I am not interested in making a ‚fashion statement’ if the woman is not feeling elegant and comfortable. The creations accentuate the sensuous flow of movement while maintaining a soft feminine look. She should be able to forget about what she is wearing and enjoy the event. Having said that, I feel there always has to be that extra element, a flare for want of a better word that demands attention. It is a thing that’s hard to define, it could be in the cut, an unusual colour combination, an accessory accent such as a belt or scarf – it’s like the spice on a gourmet meal”
Hand painted silk
Ania Zofia is known for her hand painted silk. Any pattern or disign is possible, from the realistic flowers such as Tulips, Daisies, Poppies, Roses ect., to colourful abstract themes. A simple, subtle ombre is also possible.
Miles Socha of the prestigious Woman’s Wear Daily, after seeing a fashion show noted:
I just have my fitting and I must tell you how beautiful the dress looks!
I believe I sold another mother of the groom onwearing on of yours creations. She was walkieng out of teh store when I got her attention. Venka and Robert complimented me on my technique – but that is easy to do when you believe in something that makes you look and feel fabulous.
My husband, Jeff said it perfectly to other women: „ You will have the dress that is unique creation that only you wiil have.”
I think it clinched the deal. Tahnk you again. Sincerely.
