About me and my "cups of tea"
Hello, my name is Ieva - it starts with an “i” and is a Lithuanian version of Eve. I started ieva.studio as an outlet to share my creativity, ideas and pretty much everything that is on my mind.
My university degree states that I am an architect, but I am not one. It stayed as a source of inspiration, rather than career path after realising that this is just not my kind of scale. Or - not my cup of tea. On the other hand, all the graphic work, composition and model making were things that I enjoyed and I was the kind of person who thought that good quality paper is the best thing in the world. Right now it is a piece of good fabric that makes my day.
Fashion came in after I moved to Portugal in 2010 and felt free to follow my old passion. I started studying fashion design in Lisbon and that led me into working with local luxury wear brand where I’d got to be a part of every stage from design, production to retail. I kept myself busy reading, sketching, constructing garments and that gave me a whole new understanding of what quality fashion is. Today, I have my own studio/atelier filled with amazing fabrics, great music for background and thousand ideas to realise. Let’s see how it goes.
In addition to the above, I enjoy photography and capturing daily moments is part of my life, so I always keep my camera close. And to complete the image, I have to mention my “other side” that has nothing to do with art, but is very much into motorcycles, cars, cycling and sometimes surf. Does that make any sense? Totally.
Thanks for stopping by.
