My name is Tereza Madzharova and I am an alternative gothic model and dark designer from Bulgaria. Even when I was a child I had a passion for fashion design. But I rediscovered this love until much later. A few years ago I came back to art and fashion design. Everything started as a joke, no specific idea. I won the first place in a contest for gothic models of a Bulgarian dark art organization and this resulted in everything. I started working as a gothic model with different photographers. We realized many interesting and varied ideas.
But I needed more specific clothes and accessories for my photo shoots so that I could to maximize our ideas - of me and my photographers. And this was the reason to rediscovered the love to the fashion design. I started making accessories for my photo shoots. That was only the beginning. I mainly worked with materials as leather and polymer clay but a few years later I use inside my work a lots of different materials - leather, lace, latex, vinyl, polymer clay, epoxy resin, metal, beads, fabrics and etc. I tried various combinations of materials and styles. And not long before I found my one and created my brand "DDeluxsus".
I might define my style as "different gothic", "different dark" or something similar because I always try to run away from the commercial and to show the best of me. A one year ago I took my graduation as fashion designer in National fashion academy of Bulgaria and I began to expand my work as added and production of clothing on my models. I can say firmly that I love the challenges and I do not think I'll stop here. I would like to work with people with similar thinking way like me - very open, creative and ready for crazy new ideas.
