Meet Ada Komorniczak
How Ada got inspired
Raised in a loving Polish-American culture, Ada was encouraged to travel, learn languages, and to experience all that life has to offer. The only daughter in a family of musicians and actors, Ada grew up with love for the arts and a drive to express her own creative abilities and style.
Traveling through Europe and South America inspired Ada to personalize simple, classic outfits with the fun, edgy accessories she found along the way. Next a move to cosmopolitan Santa Barbara solidified Ada's love for bright colors and soft, flowing fabrics, always accented by a hemline or other personal, eye catching twist.
To Ada, fashion aquates with self-expression and fun, so absorbing the latest trends and adding her own twist was natural. It wasn't until Ada moved to Argentina, however, that she stumbled upon her life's path as a designer. She was dazzled by the array of shoes, handbags and belts available to her in colors she could only dream of, till then, constructed with a quality of leather she'd never seen before.
Fascinated, Ada started making her own adjustments to these styles. Something was always off, and Ada couldn't resist making improvements. Removing a buckle, adjusting some straps, looking for a more angular cut or cleaner finish – she took high quality products and added her own versatile and modern spin. She asked the factories directly for design changes creating more chic and contemporary versions that appealed to the women back home who were buying her creations. Designing came naturally to Ada – her inspiration was spontaneously sparked by the shapes and colors in nature and in the daily life around her, her eyes open and her sketchbook always ready.
By a fortunate turn of events, Ada moved to Buenos Aires and within a few months found her passion in life. She had the eye of an artist and the instinct of a trendsetter. The clean, sophisticated style of the Ada Collection is designed to inspire today's modern woman in search of her own bold self-expression.
