During the pandemic, he spends some time in his Skopje, but continues to do the same work. He now lives in Portugal.

Christina captured for us what her day looks like...

I was born in Skopje, and now I live in Portugal. After half a year in Lisbon, I decided to move to the ocean, in Estoril. Until the beginning of the 20th century, this was a small fishing village, and now it is a major tourist center.

The city has a special energy. The sunrise during this period is after 7 o'clock and at that time I run along the ocean. Then I practice yoga, after which I start the work part of the day.

The daily routine is an excellent physical and mental balance that sustains and prepares me for more intense periods of work that are inevitable around fashion weeks. I work independently, for multiple clients. I dedicate myself to each client and project individually, in order to monitor productivity and work results on a daily basis.

I am the founder of ONLYAFEW, a creative consulting agency that creates a complete strategy and process for the development and maintenance of international brands.

The experience of working with agencies and independent brands has taught me to follow all processes on a daily basis. It is a great pleasure to see how your idea develops and becomes real.

My work duties as a manager and curator are creating the entire flow from idea to realization when developing the brand itself, creating strategies for wholesale, as well as organizing a showroom and representing brands on an international level.

During Paris Fashion Week, I collaborate with a Japanese agency and organize their showroom.

Usually, in the first half of the day I work with my clients and in the afternoon I am at the Sabi Gallery in Lisbon.

The gallery is created by an artist who makes a perfect blend of artwork and unique pieces of clothing with a focus on slow and sustainable fashion.

I enjoy what I do, and especially the results achieved, and I am very grateful for all the previous experiences that formed my worldview and allowed me to do the work that I love so much.
