4th interview in Famous10 section belongs to Ziva Zidar Borja, 31 years old “best half” of the owner duo of the very hip clothing shop named LWGN, located on Trubarjeva ulica in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Shop is owned also by Ziga Rangus, who will be included in the next edition of Famous10.
Ziva is also a singer in a punk band Joko Ono and big animal lover. And for all the guys, sorry, she is married too. Clothing shop LWGN itself is worth visiting, not just for all the amazing and crazy clothes you can buy there, but you can also meet Ziva there in person. But first, here is a chance for the first impression.
UranianWilly: If you weren’t doing what you are doing at the moment, what would you wish to do and why?
Ziva: I have to stress first that I am very happy where I am right now but if I didn’t have my own shop and sang in a punk band I would want to be a teacher. Preferably in high school. I would want to teach either history, sociology or english. And I guess I would be in a punk band, again.
UranianWilly: If I was to turn on your music player right now, what 3 artists/songs would I see on your recently played list?
Ziva: Killer be killed – Wings of feather and wax (do give it a listen, I can’t get enough of this song), The Dillinger escape plan – One of us is the killer, Gesaffelstein – Persuit
UranianWilly: If you had a chance to bring one person back from the dead, who would it be and why?
Ziva: Does it have to be a person? Can I bring back my mum’s and her partner’s dog back? Because if I could I would!
UranianWilly. What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into and did you learn anything from it?
Ziva: When I was a teenager I used to always get in trouble. When I was 16 I was taken to the police station because I was caught smoking a joint. I had to wait for 3 hours for my mum to come get me and then when I had a hearing at the court I had to promise the judge I will never smoke weed again. I did not learn anything from it. Still smoked weed. Never got caught again.
UranianWilly: What three things you regret not learning to do?
Ziva: Nothing, because I can still learn. It’s not like it’s to late for me to learn any of the things I never learned to do, like play an instrument, learn foreign languages, learn to fly a plane even.
UranianWilly: What do you like most about the work you are doing in the moment?
Ziva: love the creativity I can put into it, I love being my own boss and constantly trying to improve myself. I like to think I am contributing to setting a trend. I won’t call myself a trendsetter but I do think I contribute to it. There’s also the band, Joko Ono, where I can express my wildest dreams and relive my 40 minutes of fame every time I am on stage.
UranianWilly: Do you believe there is intelligent life in the Universe?
Ziva: Sure I do. Universe is vast and we couldn’t be the most intelligent species in the universe. Can you imagine that? haha.
UranianWilly: What 3 adjectives would you use to describe your personality (even the weirdest or funny example)?
Ziva: Kindhearted, quirky, open-minded
UranianWilly: What’s your motto or the advice you live by?
Ziva: Eat good food, drink expensive wine, sleep well and love unconditionally!
UranianWilly: Ten years from now you will be where or what?
Ziva: I know I will still be by my husband’s side and have children and by children I mean orphaned dogs and cats. The rest is mystery.
