BEHIND THE RUNWAY
Ula Zukowska created her own label, Ula:She (www.ULASHE.com), which combines seemingly contradictory elements outside the traditional canons of the fashion industry. Her garments are sensual, effortlessly elegant, practical and wearable.
Ula:She uses rough fabrics, irregular shapes and unique scents to create a totally new vision of the attire as a whole. Designer Ula Zukowska combines rural and urban perceptions, and embraces the unintentional and unexpected, which provides inspiration for current and future collections. Each collection appears as a form of art installation.
Ula Zukowska has wonderful customers. “...Our clienteles are passionate about our products and we are passionate about our clienteles...”
For the past two years she is sharing her 25 years experience as a passionate teacher at Fashion Exchange. She is also part of George Brown College's faculty (Bridal & Evening Wear) and a mentor at the Joe Fresh Centre for Fashion Innovation at Ryerson University (Design Zone).
