Galina Mihaleva is a Bulgarian-born designer. After graduating a Master degree in Textile Design she decided to further her studies following a PhD program in Fashion Design and Technology at the Academy of Fine Art in Sofia.
Her interest in fashion lies in exploring the extent to which we experience fashion (emotional, intellectual and sensual aspects) and how we might be able to accomplish a higher state of connectivity between the body and our clothing.
Her design work has been shown in galleries and museums across United States, Asia, Central and South America and Europe. Beyond in-depth analysis of cultural values she combines traditional tailoring methods while developing and using new materials and innovative construction processes. Unbounded by the old rules, Galina now offers her work as a testimony to the power of beauty and expression, and to the transcendent human spirit. She regards her works as being timeless.
