HERstory/ Phoenix Niewidok


Individualistic alternatives for the good of the planet is definitely the future of wearable art and self expression. Designing with a visual approach  while promoting zero waste in my garments is a win. Being a lover of everything art , music & fashion is a common thread in my esthetic and designs. 

girl noticed asks:

What is the most daring thing you’ve ever done?

I entered a fashion show with no major sewing skills . I was a visual creator with great models.  When I was backstage and saw how experienced the designers were I knew I was out of my league. I cried and freaked out and was terrified of being laughed at. This was the biggest learning experience that taught me who cares what others do. Always be authentic,  visualize YOUR  journey and take risks. 

What book have you read, that had such an impact, you would recommend everyone read it?

One easy read book that has stuck with me has been The Four Agreements by DON Miguel Ruiz.

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally

 3. Don’t  Make Assumptions 

4. Always Do Your Best. 

They are pretty much a part of my daily life.

 If you could have a gigantic mural painted in your neighborhood what would it be or say?

It would be six girls of all ethnicities floating from a broken vase into the world as warriors of success. It would say : I am  not a victim, but a student of life. I Create my own happy. I live in the light of possibilities, and will make them all come true ❤

What are you most grateful for?

I am grateful for overcoming obstacles and the beautiful people in my life that nurture my spirit and heart. Eliminate toxic people. Your gut will always signal who those people are. Trust your journey and you will attract the ingredients to make your dreams come true.
