Eva Breznikar, founder of the EvilEve brand designs unique leather products in her private workshop in the heart of Ljubljana, Slovenia. All her work is designed and made from scratch. Using her own handcrafted method – no thread, needle or ruler are used - she creates beautiful and comfortable accessories, purses, and belts. As part of the custom design, certain parts are detachable so that each piece can be worn in more than one way. She uses natural sheep and goat leather so all items are very comfortable to wear. Lovingly crafted from leather, metal studs, spikes, beads, stainless steel chains, lace, wire and other interesting materials, these radiant bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings, belts, corset belts, guitar & bass belts, dog collars & leashes, purses, clutches, messenger bags (and more) evoke a sense of rock attitude whilst retaining a contemporary feel. EvilEve accessories are edgy, but at the same time they go great with any style.
EvilEve connects rich handicraft heritage with sharp contemporary design.
From Microphone to Scissors: A rock musician becomes a fashion designer
Before starting her own leather business, Evil Eve was a touring musician with MakeUp2. She released three studio albums, numerous singles, and several music videos which feature many of her unique designs. From 2003 to 2009 she went on several world tours with Laibach as a percussionist and backup vocalist. She has also collaborated with other established artists such as Theatres Des Vampires, The Stroj, and Retro Theatre along with participating as a judge on the national singing show Glasborola. In recent years, she has written lyrics for other bands and worked as a studio musician.
During Evil Eve’s career, she often needed a bold, unusual accessory to wear onstage. As a little girl she created and sewed her own doll clothes. As a teenager she used these skills to make her own outfits when she could not find the right outfits to fit her personal style. Fellow musicians, actresses and other Slovenian celebrities admired her unique look and began to ask her for their own cuffs, belts, purses, guitar straps, and other accessories. Eventually her hobby turned into a full occupation as she has opened her own store and design studio at Zidovska street 3 downtown Ljubljana, Slovenia.
In 2013, Evil Eve was awarded the Certificate of Quality Design by the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and 1st prize for the best handcraft stand at Kamfest festival. In 2014, she took part in the fashion event Designed in Slovenia with four established Slovenian fashion designers using her handicraft accessories. And most recently in 2015, Evil Eve got the Artigiano In Fiera Milano Award at the biggest handicraft fair in the world in Milan, Italy.
Evil Eve was also an international level swimmer who still holds several national records. She stayed involved in swimming by becoming a swim coach for the Institute for Sports in Ljubljana where her team won several national titles. Evil Eve has a degree in journalism from the College of Social Sciences, Ljubljana, Slovenia.
