SBT044: Vancouver’s hottest knitwear designer Sandra Zovko talks trends, her late mom and what she has learned working for herself.
1 day ago
"This is our only life so make an impact, work for yourself, make the decisions, do the work and get the recognition". Sandra Zovko on She Built That Sandra Zovko has always had an appreciation for garments that were printed, patterned and unique. That proved to be a good thing, since Sandra's mother, the late MILA ZOVKO and namesake of Sandra's company, also shared a similar passion, and spent most of Sandra’s childhood knitting colourful, multi-pattern sweaters for Sandra and her siblings to wear. When her mom passed away in 2008, Sandra inherited her mom’s entire collection of knit sweaters and would often wear them to work, parties and events. Almost everywhere she went wearing an original Mila Zovko knit, people would stop to compliment her and ask her where she had bought it. It wasn’t long before Sandra started thinking about what it would take to reconstruct Mila’s designs for the masses. In 2014, Sandra turned that idea into action. After two years and numerous lunchtime phone calls and evening and weekend meetings with friends and advisors talking all things colour swatches, photo shoots and production timelines, Sandra Zovko launched her coveted knitwear line MILA ZOVKO this past fall, and I couldn’t be more proud. In today’s interview you’ll learn: -Why growing up, Sandra never wanted to be an entrepreneur. -How she taught herself everything she needed to know about knitwear. -Why she will never quit. -Why she would encourage future entrepreneurs to learn what they don’t know and go for it.
