Leopold & Livia Designer Suzana Stojanovska
“Before setting up Leopold & Livia with my husband in April 2012, I spent four years in London studying BA in Fashion Design in womenswear and working for several designers. I also had my own small business after graduating, designing womenswear and some accessories which were sold in different shops, Koh Samui in Covent Garden (London) was one of them,” explains Suzana
“After having our two girls I found it quite entertaining focusing on the styling of them and decided to start designing childrenswear instead, wanting to make the kind of clothes that I wanted to dress them in. Chic, feminine and sophisticated clothes with the best quality. Also, I wanted our garments to be as beautiful on the inside as on the outside. I did get quite nostalgic when having our two girls, which made me look back at my early days very often. ‘Nostalgia’ is a strong word for me and will always be the greatest source of inspiration for me when designing.”
Leopold & Livia Girls Collection – “Memories of the Child I Was”
“…memories of the child I was…” is Leopold & Livia’s first collection and is inspired by childhood memories and a few dresses dating from Suzana’a childhood. As a contrast to the femininity, Suzana also wanted to capture a formal feeling and to highlight the interplay between soft and hard materials, the strict and the fragile. Delicate sheer fabrics and tighter knit. A soft palette of contrasting black. Leopold & Livia has chosen the highest quality of the silks, cashmere blends, the softest of cotton, leather, and wools wanting to give our customer a sense of a luxurious feeling.
