About Donja


Story Seamstress - someone who weaves together the threads of narrative and fashion, creating pieces that are not just worn but experienced. 


I have a degree in advertising, where I earned skills such as creative direction, problem-solving, concept design and branding. I enriched this foundation by studying at the fashion vocational school, where I immersed myself in the art of design and sewing. 


For the past four years, I've channeled my inner "female Don Draper" by gaining experience as a creative and writer at several ad agencies. There, I learned to craft compelling narratives that actually resonate with audiences. Now, I'm on a mission to reinvent myself by blending my previous experiences with my skills in writing, fashion design, and sewing. I aim to combine the worlds of fashion, conceptual design, and writing into a tapestry of creativity and innovation.
