I was born in Ireland, but my roots are in Lithuania. These are the two countries where all the UPA dresses are 'born'. The finest fabrics of silk and linen are the kindest to the skin of a child. It flows, it wraps around you. The marvellous design makes you stand out.
The UPA dress you wear is a statement. It is a statement of your style, your personality, of your love for Mother Earth. UPA is wearable art, you can speak your truths through your fashion statements.
We are a family. Once you adopt the UPA dress, you become our family member. We then tell a story together.
I RESPECT MOTHER NATURE. AND I INVITE YOU TO DO THE SAME. HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO:
- Develop your personal style from a young age. Do not chase trends. They come and go.
- Wear your dress for as long as it fits you. I made sure that most of them would fit you at least for a few seasons. Unless, of course, you will grow crazy fast!
- Wear the same dress for different occasions. That is why I designed detachable capes and removable collars.
- After the dress doesn't fit you anymore, pass it down to your siblings or friends. Be proud to wear your older sister's dress as it only means it is an amazingly well-made dress.
This is Liepa- Linden tree. This is the reason why UPA is here.
