Sassa Björg – Don’t get fooled by the name – Sassa Björg is a fashion label based in Sofia and founded by the prominent Bulgarian designer Mila Ateva. Located in a spacious light-filled apartment in the heart of the town, the atelier offers a wide array of casual wear and cocktail dresses. Everything is rigorously handmade by her or by one of the seamstresses that you can easily spot in action while you browse the place. And if you have any particular requests or simply want to unchain your creativity, it is possible to order a bespoke garment which will be designed especially for you. Last but not least – all of this comes at very affordable prices.
