ShopTrotter Q+A: Ewa Szabatin – Fashion Designer, Dancer and Fit Fashion Freak
Champion in Latin-American dance, appreciated fashion designer, and a fit and healthy lifestyle freak at the same time! Ewa Szabatin, who’s the heart and soul behind Shabatin brand, traded successful dancer’s career for fashion design in 2013. She decided to combine those two passions because they are beautiful non-verbal forms of communication.
“In designing collections I always listen to what the rhythm of my heart is beating to. The only difference is that it is no longer the body but the dress I create for today’s performance”.
The uniqueness of the concept of the label is visible in original prints combined with simple, minimalist and comfortable cuts – it brings forward an extremely innovative look for the fashion scene. Vibrant, bright colours, and printed fabrics make a statement of a sophisticated and modern woman. Shabatin collections can be found in many renowned fashion multibrand boutiques around the world.
Being conscious of the importance of proper nutrition, sport and mindfullness Ewa also passionately educates and supports her fans on a way to live their lives well. Not only can you dress like Szabatin but also follow her idea of healthy, fulfilled everyday life (and follow her Facebook page here).
