In 2013, KRISTINA GOES WEST Founder, Kristina Armonaite-Ashton, has launched KGW Studio label with the aim to create chic handbags, jewellery and garments that stand for style, comfort and unite her Nordic heritage with British lifestyle.
Kristina's designs are inspired by her observations of modern, busy city women, their desires and needs for beautiful, high quality, functional yet timeless everyday objects. Her ability to merge these observations with her passion for the Northern European culture, aesthetics and discover new materials to create with, results in unique looking designs.
To ensure the luxurious look of each item, Kristina sources materials from the British companies that stand for quality, traditions and craftsmanship. So she can offer her clientele beautiful and exotic leathers from established Italian tanneries, mohair from Scottish mills used by global fashion super brands. And the list goes on.
To maintain the value and top quality finish, all KGW Studio products are designed and handmade in its North London's studio.
