The sisters partnered together to co-design this necklace and tank top duo, inspired by their shared journey and fueled by their individual styles. In true collaborative nature, Gorjana worked with Iva to create a tank top with the perfect necklace neckline and Iva worked with Gorjana to create a necklace that symbolizes their individuality, but also showcases their bond. 100% of net sales from this product will benefit Dress for Success Worldwide West.
Gorjana and Iva are not only inspiring female entrepreneurs, but also sisters from an immigrant background. For the first time ever, we’re sharing their story to inspire other women who are looking to achieve their dreams.
Change is the only consistent in business. Coming from an immigrant family and having to start over has helped us build resilience. We’re equipped to go through highs and lows and not quit, even when quitting would be the easiest route. As female entrepreneurs we always try to inspire others to follow their dreams. We hope that by donating 100% of net sales, we can help those dreams go a little further.
