BR is a tandem of two creative and confident fashion women – Baiba Ripa and Agita Klauss. The designers carry ideas that transcend fashion. Their ethereal yet tangible designs are created for everyday oracles and sensible philosophers. Every designed piece explores interpretations of contemporary femininity. BR aims to reach individuals who make their own propositions of lifestyle, go beyond fashion and shift the world’s energy, who are eager to wear BR’s clothes because they lift them to unworldly level.

Baiba’s artistic background is based on studies in Riga College of Applied Arts following by Hamburg Art Academy in Germany. It was her time spent in Germany in particular that broadened and shaped Baiba’s perception of fashion and the arts. Baiba then gained her work experience throughout projects in interior design and concept development which served as impellent step to the next and somewhat inevitable level – fashion. In 2005 Baiba created fashion label COTTONQUEEN though retaining her rapture for architectural shapes and textures obvious in her designs.

Agita Klauss graduated from Riga Advanced Technical College of Industrial Tailoring. Agita then continued her creative growth by working as technical production manager for Latvian clothing manufacturer whilst running her own design and tailoring studio.

For years each carrying her own creative path, Baiba and Agita finally discovered they share same common feeling of inimitable and sustainable fashion. The creation of their personal aesthetics was kindled, leading them to infuse soulfulness and sensitivity into their powerful symbiosis. Baiba and Agita as fashion design duo have since established themselves internationally in fashion weeks in Riga, Berlin, Vienna and St. Petereburg as well as gained success in various designer contests.
The history of BR uniqueness followed by Baltic charm and special attention paid to high-fashion aesthetics has just begun. Simply sit back and enjoy the flight!
