Lirika Matoshi creates sparkly tights for fairy queens 💫💖
Lirika Matoshi is a New York-based artist who creates incredible work in the form of handmade fishnet stockings, but also headpieces, gloves, necklaces and earrings. The Kosovo native came to New York City in 2016 in order to enroll at the Fashion Institute of Technology but was rejected; now, students from the Institute are calling her to be her interns as she takes on the world from her quirky Bronx studio.
“I was really upset because I had wanted to get into fashion school,” she told The Cut. “But now people from FIT are calling and asking to be my interns.”
