Anna Turaj graduated from The Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design, Poland with a diploma in Fashion Design; then went on to obtain a Master's Degree from The Pedagogical University of Cracow. She started her career as a freelance designer with several known Polish firms, creating complete seasonal collections. Along with a variety of clothing and jewelry collections in her portfolio, one can find unique print and fabric designs. While working in Paris with Joanna Blazejowska, a known Polish designer, Anna had the opportunity to test her talents in graphic design by creating the installations for ASKA's Pret-a`-Porter, Paris Automne-Hiver 2007 and 2008 collections. In 2007,2008 and 2011 she was awarded The Juror's Prize at The International Jewelry Conference 'Amberif' in Gdansk, Poland. This challenge helped her find direction in her artistic research and vision. In recent years her focus has been on accessory design, exploring unconventional themes in jewelry. Being a well- rounded, creative designer, Anna does not shy away from new and experimental projects. Out of the ordinary combinations of silver and pure fabrics give her jewelry collections a unique, one-of-a-kind quality. Anna's rich, expressive style is sure to add new character to any simple, elegant dress. Her past and present clients also include the San Francisco Ballet as well as various private commission works in France, England and beyond. She was the Head Accessories Designer at Big Star, an international clothing company. This gave her invaluable experience in the international fashion industry, through daily contact with foreign clients and businesses, and regular attendance at international fashion conventions throughout Europe. The last two years she worked as a Project Manager for Orsay, an international clothing company, where she was responsible for creating and managing collections. Currently, she is working on her new projects ANTU-accessories and clothes and "Multi Funkcion-MY" The project MY , inspired by the noble motives of Polish folk culture, aims to create a brand that will reflect the lifestyles of women in the modern world.
