ANKICA POGORZELSKI KOLDZIC
Occupation Manager of special events at the Institute of Contemporary Art
Do you feel like the ICA has helped define the landscape of the neighborhood?
Definitely. This area is young and up-and-coming. I think that people who come to our parties dress really well. It’s Boston, so people dress very classically, with a twist. It’s not too out there. It’s never too out there, but it’s always fashion forward. That’s how I see myself as well.
Where does your style come from?
I’m a cross between my grandmother and my mom. I love to go shopping with my mom, and I do a lot of shopping out of her closet. My grandmother was a dressmaker and a seamstress. She taught my mom everything there is about the importance of tailoring and how a great fit makes everything look the best it can be. My mom dresses very classically; she likes everything very contemporary with clean lines. My grandmother always liked things a little bit wilder. I’m definitely a combination of the two of them. — C.M.Interview has been condensed and edited. E-mail comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
