The Bogdar Story
Heritage & Heart
“It’s not about selling a beautiful piece, it’s about self-expression and empowerment. Our clothes enable women to be the best versions of themselves.”
Bogdar was founded in Bulgaria in 2015 but our true beginnings go much further back – to a boy, born in a family that has been in the fashion industry for generations, who grew up running between the machines in his parents’ factory and dreamt of leaving his own beautiful and lasting mark on the world. He found the perfect partner and advisor in his wife – the kind of passionate and confident woman that Bogdar makes its unique pieces for.
We are Pavel and Teodora Lozanov – the pair behind Bogdar. Today all of Bogdar’s clothes are produced in our home country Bulgaria – caught between the mountains and the sea, in the emerging style of the New East – contemporary fashion made in Eastern Europe and combining the best of its exquisite skill and materials with the style and freedom of the present and future.
In Bulgarian Bogdar’s inimitable name means “a gift from God”. And it is this name that emerged from a dream in the middle of the night, written on a piece of paper by that same boy years later, when he was ready to start building what he’d always dreamt of. Today every piece we make is a gift created with purpose and love.
And the rest is fashion.
