Njomza Pacarada and her mom Rejhane Pacarada design a collection called NyokiHandmade in London. It is produced in Kosovo, with the help of Njomza’s sister, Arta Pacarada. It’s a family affair, but not only. It is also an ethical affair as Nyoki works closely with job creation programs in Kosovo, giving female survivors of the war the confidence and the financial means to support themselves and their families. The company is new (not even a year old) so the products are only available in London and online at this stage (www.nyoki.co.ukandwww.notonthehighstreet.com). That crochet hat and collar have something sweet, nostalgic yet modern. And versatile. Imagine the two pieces on an older child, colorful outfit, sporty look. It works totally; just a question of angle.
I am the founder of Pirouette Blog. I spent many years in the fashion industry, so I often write about childrenswear. What interests me the most is the people behind brands and products. Besides fashion, I have a passion for photography and cinema, as well as for nutrition, health, education and science, so I sometimes write about that as well.
