As Nadia watched, she felt an immediate connection; she too loved to make pretty things for herself when she was young.
It was then Nadia realized what really inspired her, was the search for such connections. Seeing accessories as a way to bring people together, she launched Adia Kibur by the age of twenty-one to renew her creative passion.

Bernie Dexter: At a very young age, Bernie Dexter started going to thrift stores with her mother. She was always buying cat eye sunglasses, pretty 1950s dresses and shoes. That is where the madness began! She discovered the Rockabilly & Swing scene in Hollywood and would go dancing 3 times a week. She would look through LA Weekly to go see any bands that looked like they may be swing or Rockabilly...the perfect place to wear vintage dresses! The only problem was, when she started going out to swing dance clubs, she would find my vintage pieces ripping as soon as she hit the dance floor. Whether it be a seam due to dry cotton thread or a full on rip in the fabric starting to decompose, it was such a huge disappointment. Sometimes she never made it out the front door without a disaster. This is when she started to dream of making her own pin up dresses collection. So she decide to turn her favorite vintage formals into wearable day and sun dresses that you can dance, shop, or just feel pretty in.

Dark Horse Comics: Dark Horse Comics was founded in 1986 by Mike Richardson as an offshoot of his Oregon comic-book retail chain, Things From Another World. Richardson pursued the idea of establishing an ideal atmosphere for creative professionals, and twenty-five years later the company has grown to become the third-largest comics publisher in the United States.
In 1980, Mike Richardson used a credit card with a two-thousand-dollar credit limit to open a comic-book store, Pegasus Books, in the small resort town of Bend, Oregon. His intention was to write and illustrate a children’s book himself while working in the store, but the business expanded, and his project was put on hold. He still plans to finish that book. As business grew, Richardson opened new retail locations in Oregon and Washington State. He soon became frustrated, however, by the lack of quality in the products he was selling, and so, using funds from his retail operation, he began his own publishing company. From the very start Dark Horse Comics was a different kind of publishing house. Writers and artists were treated as partners, an unheard-of generosity in the comic-publishing field at that time. Soon the industry’s top creators were flocking to Dark Horse, where they became involved in the publishing and marketing of their creations.
