Irina started BlissGirl because she had tons of clothes and accessories yet always had nothing to wear. She also has an insatiable obsession with pop art, photography and bright colors.

That's why she started making earrings... she could never find the right ones and one day started glueing things together. A few cold-brews and Bowie albums later, she had some fab, big earrings. She wore them to her waitressing job and had people asking where they could buy them.

Along the way, she started making t-shirt designs as a creative outlet from of her side gig as a graphic designer. She also started using designs she had made over the years into t-shirts also. She is still obsessed with wearable art.

She hopes BlissGirl will continue as a place for people to express their beauty and individuality through art and fashion.
