Maurizio Distefano, Founder and President, MDL, comments: "The collaboration with Malia Edizioni shows the true diversity of the GAPCHINSKA property and we are thrilled that it has been recognised with this award. The collection is unique and appeals to a wide age range, from youngsters to adults. GAPCHINSKA is a brand that can easily be adapted to different consumer products categories."
Eugenia Gapchinska, artist, says: "When I was a child, parents and teachers were telling me all the time: "You can`t do it, no matter how hard you try. Someone out there – they can, not you… Just gave it all up". And I`m still didn't put up with it. After all those years! You know, all these "famous personalities", we usually see them quite superficially. All those "idols", "stars"... Funny clothes, weird behavior, acting like freaks, taking weird decisions – I call all this BRAVERY!
