There has always been an inner desire and drive to attain what to most would be unattainable, to produce the extraordinary, and to deliver to the highest level.
Being born in Poland to two professional athletes, this first manifested itself in the sporting world. Having my dad as a swimming coach jumpstarted my swimming career from an early age. Through hard work and sheer will, I produced strong results internationally and represented my country at some of the world’s most prestigious events, including the Sydney Olympics in 2000.
I loved the sport and the achievements which came with it. Being a full-time sportswoman took a lot of time and commitment and this dedication was only possible because of the passion I have for competition.
The only thing that matched this passion is the heart and eyes that I have had, and continue to have for fashion.
Throughout my early adulthood, I had a great zeal for designing and creating my own clothes accessories and this has stayed with me. This was in the main due to my love for fashion and style and the lack of accessibility of any fashion labels in Polish post Soviet’s regime stores. I was exposed to creativity and the discipline from very early age, and therefore even though I did not finish fashion school, I decided to follow my dream of becoming a fashion designer.
I inherited the elegance, the sophistication, and a life-long love affair with pearls frommy mom and a persistence and dynamic approach from my dad.
I graduated from the University of Dallas, Texas (where I received a full scholarship through swimming) and as a consequence of the skills gained, the passion I have for design, and the belief that I can create pieces of the highest standard, I decided to start my own jewellery label.
I always searched for something out of the ordinary, something more unique and bespoke items that I simply could not find it in a standard high street shop.
My collections represent a powerful combination of sophistication and glamour. Pieces that are wearable but also individual. Most importantly I always create what I love to wear, yet I also tell a story through my style. Sophisticated, wearable art, that provides delivers a statement before a word has even been spoken. AllyM Pearls was created from my love for fashion and a passion for pearls which is pure.
London has provided a great source of inspiration, the like of which it would have been a challenge to find elsewhere. There are few places around the world which can inspire you quite like London can and has.
I have been fortunate to have met many other amazing designers, photographers and fashion stylists who loved my products and enjoyed working with me. This affirmation has been highly encouraging, and my jewellery has now featured on Magazine covers and TV shows.
I truly cherish what I do so much and through my designs, I want to inspire as I have been inspired, and to spread the sparkle of glamour and joy to all of you remarkable women out there.
