Specialising in womenswear, Ieva Skikaite is a Lithuanian-Born, London based designer, drawing inspiration from men's workwear attire, contrasting feminine elements of elegance and simplicity with the essence of garment functionality.
Graduated from Middlesex University, Ieva’s collection is inspired by fishermen, which is rooted in her family background as well as overlooking her teenage years spent by the seaside, clearly communicated in her fabric choices and accessories.

Ieva’s garment’s lay importance in meticulous cut, technical construction and use of quality, luxury fabrics. Her designs create a character of a fierce, powerful and independent woman of today.
