where to buy

Concepted as an open design studio/workshop with a Showroom, where customers can have the feeling that they participate in the making of their garment.
Here is where unique templates are borne and made. Prototypes of textile products intended for further production are also created and distributed.
The primary focus of Kookabee studio is to make uniquely designed outfits, made to measure, intended mainly for women and suitable for all special occasions, like weddings, where a woman should look and feel her best. In Kookabee Design we are aware that the final product and its presentation is our best recommendation.

When creating a uniquely individualised dress for our valued clients, the first step starts
with listening to the clients vision. We consult, but don’t deviate from the rules of aesthetic and quality of the final product. If I decide that my clients vision cannot be realised, for some reason, the process does not go on.
In designing our garments, I am guided by my intuition, mood, sometimes music, stories, a movie or a book, sometimes smell or a color, a movement and a change. The natural cycles around us and within ourselves…
