When was the brand created?

Aniela Parys Desings was born in 2010 in my home town, Eugene Oregon USA. I started by designing for local fashion shows and designing custom pieces for clients. I launched my ready to wear lingerie collection one year ago when I moved to Barcelona.

– Why did you decide to come to Barcelona?

I decided to have my base in Barcelona because I’ve always wanted to move country. When I came here I was traveling and didn’t really know what I was looking for. Once I arrived I found friends who owned a boutique in the Raval neighborhood and I started working with them. They helped me set up my studio, things just fell into place really quickly and now I feel like it is my home. I take a lot of inspiration from my experiences living here and from the city itself.
– Why did you decide to create the brand?
I decided to create my brand because I have always loved designing and I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could make a living on my own by selling my art.

– Where can we find your clothing?

Now Im selling online from my Etsy shop – Etsy.com/Shop/AnielaParysDesigns as well as two boutiques in the center of Barcelona, Grey Street Barcelona (Calle Peu de la Creu 25), and Plhi (Calle Comtessa de Sobradiel, 10).

I hope to find more boutiques to stock in the near future!

– What do you find most difficult about having a brand?
Right now I’m managing all aspects of my brand, everything from designing, production, marketing, and communications. At this time I find it hard to keep up with the marketing, social networking, and business side of things, I’m naturally an artist so these things don’t come as naturally to me and I have to learn new skills all the time to keep up with the growth of my brand.

– What kind of audience wears your brand?
I sell to a wide range of women all over the world! The majority of my customers are women between the ages of 16-50, in all sizes and body types.
– Tell us about your latest collection?
For my most recent lingerie collection, I really tried to focus on creating for women living in society today. The collection is inspired by my recent experiences living in Barcelona, I wanted to create something as an alternative to the modern view of women and sexuality around the world. I want the women wearing my brand to feel their feminine beauty, feel empowered and completely free of all social expectations.

– Is there any story behind Aniela Parys Designs?
I hope that my brand and my story will inspire people to follow their dreams! Moving country as an independent artist was always my dream. It is a huge project that comes with a lot of obstacles that I still face every day. Even so I keep working towards my goals and learn new things every day. Hopefully I can inspire more young people to be brave, follow their passions and work hard for the things they want to achieve in life.
