Barbara Horváth, head designer of ssamaryll has been sewing since the age of 14, she learnt it by herself and from her mother. She was so thin she had to make her own dresses as she liked to dress fashionably even at that time and because the confectionary clothes were too big for her. Art and architecture always attracted her, the joy and success of creating is an essential part of her life.
