Mariela Gemisheva is undoubtedly one of the most Important names in Bulgarian fashion design. What’s more, she is an artist who uses the language of fashion in contemporary art, and a creator of clothes that become a form of art. The models in her fashion shows are elevated to the status of walking sculptures. Through them, the artist speaks about the feminist revolution, about the vacillations and contradictions of contemporary femininity, but also about the complicated dialogue between various social and cultural spaces. 

Provocation is a key element of her works, which the American curator Roger Conover defines as “unimitable in her ability to turn any limitation into an advantage.''

In the words of the designer, art is: "practice, communication, process, restlessness - the dynamics in which you measure your daily rhythm."
