I am visiting school for Fashion design in Ljubljana. At the end of the school year we always prepare our fashion show, where all the students can show their own designs.
This year we had opportunity to make a fashion show in collaboration with Philips Fashion Week, where all of the established Slovenian designers show their collections every season.
It was such an amazing experience and a lot of hard work. But it was worthed
Since we (students) have only one fashion show in the whole year, we had freedom to design either Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter collection. Most of the students presented F/W collection. But I decided to design a collection for S/S.
Theme of a fashion show was “I remember…”. We had to find a piece of clothing which has an important place in our memory.
I have a younger sister and I remember we both had a lot of identical clothing. I specially remember this blue dress with white flowers. We were so cute in this dress and we looked like twins.
Next step was to find an inspiration which was in the connection with this memorial clothing. I was inspired by 50′s fashion, Dior and other big designers in that period.
We started sketching and drawing different designs and after few months, the collection was done.
Here are my final sketches:
And here are final designs presented on a Philips Fashion Week (April 9, 2013)
All the students presented their collections at the same fashion show, so makeup and hair were the same for everyone. I didn’t like makeup at all, though hair style was O.K.
I have designed all the clothes, I created patterns by my own and I sewed all the dresses by myself.
