Bulgarian designer Suni (here - at his request, I present him only with his artistic nickname) was born in Kardzali, but has lived in England for 20 years. He is only seven years old when he leaves home with his parents. He has been through a very difficult period at a refugee camp in Sweden, but that was a long time ago.
