Edite is a fashion historian from Latvia and the author of the book "Stila un modes enciklop?dija"( Encyclopedia of Style and Fashion) as well as author of many publications. Currently she is an assistant professor at the Latvian Academy of Arts and is working on her doctoral dissertation. Her research focuses on the historical fashion of the Latvian capital Riga. Edite is convinced that it is impossible to create something innovative without knowing the history. There are the beginnings of everything that we are wearing today. Among her special interests are nature photography, music, historical fashion and alternative fashion.
When our thoughts turn to Latvia, the far North, elks, and wide-open spaces immediately come to mind. But this country of just under 2 million inhabitants is turning into an enclave of the creative, especially in design and fashion.
