Fashion design inspired by the classics: An interview with Anna Popovich

Anna Popovich describes an unusual start to her career running an independent fashion label, now producing beautiful limited edition items throughout the year.

Written by Amelia Gregory

Anna Popovich by Karolina Burdon.

Anna Popovich grew up in Leicester and has taken a far from direct route into fashion, first studying Literature at King's College London, before refining her style working as a model and an intern for the likes of Roksanda Ilinicic, then topping up her skills at London College of Fashion and Central St Martins. Her innovative Hackney based brand has recently decided to concentrate on selling direct to the public, offering affordably priced limited runs throughout the year straight through their website.
