House Calls: Eliza Kozurno designs accessories for a cultish clientele from her living room
The designer Eliza Kozurno, who trained as a textile designer in Poland before moving to Toronto in 2002.
The studio The living room of her Dundas and Dovercourt home.
The goods Kozurno has been working out of her home for four years, mixing black lace, feathers and metalwork in her almost gothic statement pieces. She has quietly amassed a cultish clientele among the city’s fashion vanguard, including designer Sarah Stevenson and a litany of design bloggers. But the small wooden desk she calls her workspace doesn’t leave a lot of room for mass production. Her most detailed pieces can take as long as three days to make.
The outlet Daniela Bosco, style gadfly and owner of Chasse Gardée, is also a big fan of Kozurno’s, and her store regularly features the designer’s work—as do several other boutiques in both Toronto and New York.
