Designer Mona Kowalska has owned and operated her boutique and clothing line, A Détacher, since 1998. Originally from Krakow, Poland, Kowalska began designing for a number of Italian labels and running the studio for Sonia Rykiel.
"I don't have the ambition to dress everyone in the world. I feel like the people who need to find us eventually find us."
By far one of the most interesting designers in NYC, Mona Kowalska's A Detacher collections always feature innovative construction and striking creations. Put simply Mona does things that nobody else does and she does it with remarkable consistency. This effective uniqueness, and unique effectiveness expands across all facets of her business as the above quote clearly demonstrates. The opportunity to hear this "designer's designer" and successful businesswoman is not to be missed.
