Bulgarian Designers: Marinella Zakaryan and Paradise Garage Boutique

Hey dears! Do you remember that last Wednesday I told you about two Bulgarian designers that are really talented? Well today I have something even better! You're going to meet the lovely Marinella Zakaryan! She's one of the most interesting people I've met and owns a little colorful boutique where every piece is unique and made by a young Bulgarian talent! This magical place is called Paradise Garage Boutique and it's hidden in a small romantic street in the city center! The moment I waked in for the first time I knew I wanted to share it with you, so I want to thank Marinella for letting me do it! 

Marinella has her own views on fashion. She believes in individuality, in finding the perfect piece for everyone that would express exactly who this person is. This is the main focus of the boutique. The idea about it was born 7 years ago in Soho, NY. Marinella wanted to recreate the charming little stores back in Bulgaria! Actually she wanted to own a boutique ever since she was a little girl. 20 years ago her aunt used to own a boutique where she was selling gorgeous luxurious dresses. When it was closed those dresses went to the ceiling and Marinella was imagining how she'd upgrade them and sell them in at a very special place. In Soho the idea developed and Paradise Garage Boutique was born. 

Marinella really believes in the talent of the young Bulgarian designers. Some of the clothes are even made by the design students from my university! Like my favorite piece in the store for example! I fell in love with this gorgeous top and I just had to try it on! It's so beautiful and unique! Look at these statement sleeves and the unexpected lace back! I will probably have to add this to my personal wardrobe! :)

It's hard to own a boutique in my country. But what drives Marinella to continue fighting for her dream is the people's reaction, the people coming back more than ones, the love they share!

I asked Marinella what's the must have for the fall and she said: Well it's a trench with butterflies on the lining, of course! Doesn't this sound magical to you! It would definitely make the rainy season a whole lot brighter! She believes that the best fashion advice is to be yourself and if you wake up feeling gloomy to make a little effort and transform your mood, wearing your favorite clothes!

Marinella is a real believer in the power of fashion blogging! She really love the fact that we're gaining more influence because we're closer to the people and we're the real trendsetters! 

"I prefer to be inspired by my life, this way everything comes from my heart." ~Marinella

The clothing is romantic and feminine. I would love to shop here. The shirt with the puffy sleeves is very cute. I really like the dramatic detailing.
