Meet Our Designers: Aviva Zilbermanby Anna Kopito | 19.11.14
Aviva Zilberman’s latest collection hits all the right spots – or should I say stripes? Fusing perfectly elegant classics like the French breton with contemporary, more masculine structures, Aviva creates clothing for the modern and style-conscious. Perfectly entwining wearable designs and fabrics with a delicate sophistication and femininity, Aviva’s collection presents a realistic and beautiful look that will allow the women who wear it to feel as sensuous as they look.
