BIO/DESIGNS

Aga - established fashion stylist and personal shopper with awards in make-up artistry and clothing design, having a passion for vintage, antiques, and up-cycling furniture which she sells in her vintage unit located in the Ridings Shopping Centre in Wakefield.

She started her interest in fashion in 2001 collaborating with local photographers in Warsaw. By 2003 her interest had diversified into an internship in the Polish ‘Elle’ magazine. After moving to the UK late in 2003 she has undertaken work for magazines, fashion shows, product launches, advertising campaigns, roadshows, photo shoots, and celebrity personal styling and shopping. Aga has also started writing Fashion and Make Up related articles for various local publications, and was a regular contributor to an on-line site for Polish women living in the UK and Ireland.

In August 2007 she was awarded third prize in an International make-up competition organised by Glazel Cosmetics. The same year she opened a vintage fashion boutique (located in ‘Retro Boutique’ in north Leeds), a well-known vintage and antique destination in the North, and relocated in 2014 into Wakefield’s Vintage and Collectables Centre in the Ridings Centre.

In 2011 she has undertaken mentoring activities for a young up-coming designer, and as a result of this Aga has contributed to the success of her clients collection. The collection was shown at the ‘Leeds Fashion Show’ and Aga’s client won the title ‘Designer of the Year 2011′.

At the beginning of 2012 Aga and Ewa joined in a collaboration to create two collections (2012 to 2013) under the label “domanska+bracken”. In October 2012 they were successful in winning the ‘Catalyst Award 2012′ at the Leeds Fashion Show.

During the same 2 year period Aga was working as a Personal Shopper/Sales Associate in luxury retailer Harvey Nichols in Edinburgh.
