Evgenia Popova is a young womenswear designer, born and raised in Bulgaria. She received her first lessons in fashion at her grandmother's design studio where she learnt tailoring and pattern construction. Initially not focusing on fashion as a career choice, Evgenia studied for a degree in Economics and following graduation worked in a managerial position. She eventually made the decision to follow what she saw as her true calling in fashion and enrolled on a Foundation course at Barcelona's Escuela Superior de Disegno Y Moda. After graduating she was offered a place on the degree course in Fashion Design at London College of Fashion and so impressed her tutors that they advised her to concentrate on building her own label instead.
