EDITOR’S COLUMN

I am entering an organic continuity, as for me PIXIE was never just about what she wears, it’s also about the way she leads her life.

This is a story about other women and therefore about me. I am a serious believer in the saying that you are a mix of people that you surround yourself with.

Maybe it’s a little snobby to think that I’m all of these incredible women, but just the idea that I’m close to them makes me humble and incredibly proud.

I will talk, but, most importantly, I will let the other women speak.

More will follow and my deepest wish is that we’re on the same page.

But for now, let me tell you a short story about each of my ladies:

Līva Oliņa

writer and journalist
tea lover & ethical fashion supporter
based in Paris

Līva is my online love story. I don’t have many, so it’s pretty special.

One day she posted a picture with a caption about conscious fashion – questioning, being aware. It resonated. I replied.

Ever since she’s the PIXIE’s muse and a collaborator.

The rest is history.

And the future is bright.

Arta Urzula Goldmane

co-founder of imin.lv
MA Interreligious Relations
based in Riga

Arta and I come from the same cluster. In short, she’s my soulmate. We met in 2014 when both of us joined the faculty of theology; It’s one of those typical stories – I didn’t like her and I knew she didn’t like me. 

After nine months of sitting in the same lectures, out of the blue, she sat next to me and asked me about what am I doing. I was finishing up my application for an exchange year in Prague. Not fully aware of the words that were coming out of my mouth, I asked her if she wants to join. She said yes (I’m still in awe of this bizarre situation, no comprehension of which Holy Spirit did that lol).

We ended up sharing the same room (!!!) for 5 months. I would not lie if I’d say that we were together 24/7 during those 5 months. We turned out to be a match made in heaven.

I just adore her.

She questions life, she questions people and she questions herself. Every. Single. Day. So I’ll let her continue to question all there is.

Ingrīda Arāja

mother of 3 
chief executive officer
co-founder @_pixiewontplay                       
MA Personnel Management

Ingrida is my mother, my business partner and a woman that feeds me outer space knowledge on a daily basis.

Honestly, without her, I’m just a pipe dreamer, and I’m OK with that!

She is in sync with the knowledge that she has passed onto me. The knowledge has helped me during several occasions of different scales.

I am talking about the moon.

I look at the sea and I see what moon does to her. I know that I am made of water, <startdust & energy>. I don’t need any more evidence to know that dear Luna affects me.

I won’t say anything else and I will let you to make a decision on your own – to believe or not to believe 🙂

Ilze Jansone

author, writer and journalist
PhD in theology & religious science
based in Riga

Ilze was my professor during second year of my studies and she became my supervisor when the time to write my thesis came.

She was sharp, very smart and genuinely interested in life (and, therefore, death).

She was different. She still is. I personally believe that she has a lot to say, I think it should be illegal not to give a platform to people like her. A platform where they can educate other people; where they can speak without any censorship.

I want to credit this woman for my masters degree as well, without her I wouldn’t last long in the faculty of theology and most probably would not even consider masters studies. 

She gave me the green light, the only green light among all the red flags and no-no’s.

If we will listen carefully, I am sure, we will credit her for evolving our ideas and thoughts about very, very, very important topics!

I’m excited!

Elīza Lasmane

anthropologist
MA conflict studies & human rights
based in Riga

When Elīza writes, the world stops; she could fill your soul with tears while writing poetry about a blank wall.

She’s a magician when it comes to words.

And if you want to feel, rather than learn – she’s your jackpot. Definitely mine.

PIXIE WON'T PLAY:
We make clothes we love to wear
// US
We are inspired by the moment in which an unconstrained personal expression of a woman was first born. Our signature elegance - simplicity nexus is a reliable source of empowerment and freedom. It gives us confidence, clear vision and passion: nothing stands in the way of PIXIE.
// THE ACT OF CREATION
We accept no sacrifices. When aware of the surroundings, sustainability comes without an effort. Sensibility is innate for PIXIE: natural and durable materials are integral to our way of doing it - we can not imagine for it to be any other way.
// THE GARMENT
Each piece of clothing is based on three things we highly value: universality, ease and statement. PIXIE stays faithful to black and white, making sure that every additional color is selected mindfully. Feminine and masculine cuts are combined when creating the non-seasonal apparel, enabling the wearer to consort to any occurrence.
