Dresses is a Patrizia Pepe and PINKO franchise store located in Galleria shopping centre, Burgas.


The space provided for the store was industrial – grey walls, concrete columns, visible electrical and ventilation systems, vinyl floor.

In order to transform it into a simple, elegant and luxurious store presenting high quality fashion brands, a unique four metres high scenography shell, inspired by Italian architectural details, was created. In the periphery of the store a metal structure interpreting arches and columns displays the clothes.

The sense of timeless design is highlighted by a marble flooring by Rex. Two of the walls are cladded with MDF panels, cut and arranged in an intarsia pattern.


Wood is the only colourful accent in the white luxurious space. Each of the furniture was custom-made by local carpenters  and has its special purpose.

Three-legged tables display larger accessories and highlight particular pieces of clothing, while the curvy wooden table in the middle of the store is designed for jewelry and scarfs. The space is reflected by mirrors shaped like arches. For the past few months Dresses has become a breath of discrete elegance in Galleria shopping centre.

Think Forward
Think Forward is an independent Bulgarian creative union founded by Galina Milkova /architect/ and Nedko Nikolov /designer/ in 2013. The practice exceeds architectural, interior and product design, excited by socio-ethical problems and their solution by the means of ART. In 2014 they started an art class at a local school called ЕСТ-ЕТИКА /esth-ethics/, which platform is their architectural philosophy. They  collaborated with forward-thinking private clients, non-government organizations, schools, manufacturers.

They  have been commissioned innovative small-scale/big social impact projects. As a result this team has successfully introduced lateral thinking to the local educational system /Creative Room, Fun Room, 5 Rooms/. Another main focus of this practice are interactive installations /SALGHT, Love Pavilion/. Currently, they are designing a lifestyle centre in Bulgaria for the emerging brand FITHOLIC.
