The Heroine’s Journey of Katrin Dimitrova

What is the best thing that I love about my work? I’m in love with art! I work with feelings, emotions, and someone’s story – I tell it differently and show that each of us can be someone’s inspiration and give hope to someone else. My work allows me to be who I am – no matter who is looking or what they say….my work makes me accessible, and happy and brings me joy. I’m not looking for anyone’s approval, I promised myself to seek the path to happiness unceasingly – to be alive is a gift, and happiness must be given.

What is my idea of happiness? The freedom to be a dreamer. Where dreams and, purpose comes – Hard work is how we achieve our goals and reach happiness.

What is my greatest fear? Not to be terrified that I might fail. I believe that failure, however unpleasant, is the best teacher. Our lessons learned are not from the best advice given but from our biggest mistakes!

What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? Sometimes I let my emotions control me. My impatience.

Which living persons in my profession do I most admire? Designers and artists I admire are Olivier Rousteing, Iris van Herpen and Berta Balilti.

What is my greatest extravagance? The combination of the different styles of eras, clothing, and life. The freedom to be yourself is the best example you can give! Never apologize for your style!!!!!!!

On what occasion would I lie? Lying is something I work on every day to explain to my child that it is wrong and unnecessary. A lie used for both good and bad is pain and disappointment because behind it is always the truth.

What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? I wouldn’t like it if someone made me do things that I wouldn’t see myself in it. Right now I have all the freedom and I hope it stays that way!

When and where was I the happiest, in my work? I feel happiest and most satisfied when I finish a project that means something to someone and I know that my work will be loved, not forgotten and thrown away.

If I could, what would I change about myself? I’m comfortable in my own skin, maybe I still need to find my golden mean, but I’d rather walk all the way there.

What is my greatest achievement in work?

As well as my work as a designer with Miss Dее introduced me to a different world in the fashion industry:

Where would I most like to live? I dream of living in a warm place with lots of palm trees, this atmosphere inspires me and fills me with new ideas. I also hope to be able to spend at least a year in Dubai with my family and learn the ins and outs of the fashion industry they have.

What is my most treasured possession? The most unadulterated and true love – My child, and everything I want to give and teach her – To be a real person and fight for her dreams!

What is my most marked characteristic? An indescribable dreamer.

What is my most inspirational location, in my city Sofia is full of sights, but it’s not a matter of what you can see, but what people can tell you, that’s where the secret lies that you can’t find in the TOP 10.

What is my favorite place to eat and drink in my city? I can say that everything at Grandma’s is the most delicious!

What books influenced my life and how? The Secret – it made me believe even more in the power of thought! But I highly recommend The Little Prince – read it at least three times at different stages of your life and rediscover your perceptions again and again.

You Only Die Once. What music would I listen to on my last day? The sound of happiness.

Who is my hero or heroine in fiction? The Little Prince and His Infinite Love.

Who are my heroes and heroines in real life? I believe that characters change throughout our lives. The hero for me in the last year has shown me once again that everything is possible, that we must fight our battles without rest and remain in the same splendor that we have carried in ourselves despite the difficulties! I’ll keep my character’s name to myself, but I want to say a huge THANK YOU!

Which movie would I recommend to see once in a lifetime? Pretty Woman

What role do stories play in my life and work? Stories teach good, and bad, and help to see things in a different way and in a different perspective. When I start my projects I plot points and create a story, sometimes it takes me longer to write it than to recreate it, but it always helps when I lose myself in my ideas, go back to what I wrote and keep creating.

What do the words ‘You are the storyteller of your own life’ to me? There is nothing better than writing the story of your life with your own hand: Grab the pen because you have to write your happy ending and then remember the whole adventure before you see the last “THE END” !!!

Who is my biggest fan, sponsor, partner in crime? My biggest fan and constant helper is my daughter. I love her more than anything and I hope one day her dreams come true, but it’s so cute when she says that she wants to be like mommy <3. My sponsor is my partner – he gave me the freedom and time to take my path to get closer and start making my dreams come true. Thank you for helping my dream come true! The person next to me all my life through every crime of mine is my sister when you want your secret to staying hidden, someone to make you believe in yourself again or just to cry and your tears to be shared we are always there one for another!

Which people or companies would I like to work with? I want to work in companies with a high level of experimental and haute couture. I adore the new and the unpredictable, and especially the unexpected material from which something unique can be created. Many people do not understand Haute Couture and look at it with scorn, but the truth is that what a person with opportunities and an understanding of what is actually hidden behind the concept of the garment would buy for a lot of money, the average consumer would not get for free. Olivier Rousteing, Iris van Herpen.

What project am I looking forward to work on? I am working on creating my brand, I can’t wait to be able to reach the big catwalks of London, Milan, Paris, New York, Dubai, etc. I have a few more ideas that I plan to work on in the future, but I need to gather more experience from different aspects of my life path.

Where can you see me or my work?

What do the words “Passion Never Retires” mean to me? So-called passion can only go away when it was never there. Interest in something is a temporary feeling – True passion is alive all the time, it just sits inside you and smolders, thirsts incessantly, it needs you to give it pleasure to make dreams come true, so that it can create a new one and wait for it as it has waited for every previous one and will wait for each subsequent one. All life is a PASSION, live it non-stop and passionately because it’s worth it!
