MEET AGA, THE DESIGNER
"I was born in Poland, and from a very young age I knew that fashion design was my calling. After creating clothes for Barbie and other dolls with ambition and imagination, I started making life-sized garments soon afterwards.
After immigrating to the US in my early teen years, I decided to pursue a degree in Fashion Design at Columbia College Chicago. There, I found myself immersed not just in learning about current trends, but also all aspects of crafting beautiful pieces of art through clothing construction and production. After college, I worked for numerous fashion designers and bridal salons, which provided me with enriching opportunities to hone my skills and gain meaningful industry experience.

Although I was very passionate about this work, I felt that I was too restricted by the rules of someone else’s company. So, in 2015, I decided to launch my own design atelier. Now, instead of pushing boundaries within someone else's limits, I am able to express myself freely as an independent designer. Plus, if time allows, I get to design a dress for myself once in awhile!"
