Since Spring 2023, Dimana Nakova has started a whole new approach to her fashion collections for IXTYS and has introduced One-of-a-kind textile artworks with each one of them. The textile paintings are originals, made personally by the Creative Director. Most of the One-of-a-kind artworks have been chosen by international jury to be part of highly professional, multinational exhibitions. They are meant for interior decorating, but also serve as a starting point and a concept for the created afterwards gowns.

The main textile technique is based on the couture one that the atelier uses to decorate the gowns. This is a type of appliqué that is digitally designed and embroidered, hand cut and stitched to the base fabric, which is hand sewn in advance to a felt base. Very often hand beading, collage and 3D techniques add to the story of the textile artworks.
