by FORMER GUESS? LEAD DESIGNER

MARINA IVANOVA


Originally from Bulgaria, I’m thankful to have grown up surrounded by makers. Both of my babas – grandmothers – were fond of the old traditions, those of the hands; keen on teaching me crochet, knitting and needlepoint.

Soon after this, my immediate family and I fled for Italy during the fall of the communist bloc in 1989.

Years later, having moved to Los Angeles, I brought my own modern, architectural reinvention of my babas’ Turkic aesthetic to GUESS? – where I designed over a thousand pieces sold domestically and worldwide.

Throughout my time working in global fashion, however, I kept thinking of them – of my babas, who taught me to work with string and yarn, hooks and pliers. . . .

Pliers & String Jewelry Atelier is dedicated to their memory.
