A tribute to Frida
"I delved into a year of architecture in my early twenties, and it turns out, Frida and I were classmates. Recently, I've come to discover that she passionately sings about female empowerment and love. And of course, I was inspired :)" Kristina
"In 2015, I crossed paths with Beirut-based clothing designer Cynthia Chamat Debbané and founder of Urban Sense label. Cynthia chose to showcase my shoe lines in her shop and played a pivotal role as a retail ambassador for Kinamania in Beirut. To complement her lines of minimalist and fluid clothing, she requested a short and simple bootie, and that's how I crafted The Frida." Kristina
