Jewelry is my passion! I view it as charms with which I execute magical metamorphoses - and that's just the beginning of further changes!
My name is Katarzyna Rychlewska, but my friends call me Kate. In 2008, after many years of working for big corporations (Coty, Danone, W. Kruk), I decided to quit and open my own boutique.
I was inspired by my journey to Lebanon. There, I discovered talented craftsmen who create wonderful, colorful adornments. Then I went to Florence, where I also found beautiful, artisan jewelry. I brought back it with me. I rented a little venue, behind two gates, near a fountain. My friends thought I lost my mind: You want to open a shop in a place so hard to reach?
I admit, my approach to fashion tends to be irrational, but maybe this is precisely why my multi-brand boutique managed to accumulate the most important names in the world of fashion jewelry? Eddie Borgo, Marek Wójcicki, Monica di Creddo, Alexis Bittar, Issey Miyake, or Oscar de la Renta... To be honest, I didn't want to create yet another jewelry boutique, but a magical place for women who love life, appreciate beauty, and are open to what's new. Every piece is unique. Series are limited - sales close after even 20 pieces.
I organize Wear Yourself! workshops for women who want to be more courageous when it comes to fashion. I claim that accessories are not there only to add to your outfit, but they can be your lucky charms and they can bring your true self out. I will never sell you something if I have a feeling it would end up at the bottom of your drawer...
I also founded the Kate Academy, where I encourage women to do sports. Each class is open for anybody who wants to get in shape and practice running.
I gladly welcome new challenges! I started a Youtube channel where I talk about the new collections... And, as always, I try to encourage women to leave their comfort zones and show off their true selves! Watch...
