And right before the third edition of the IDENTITY DRESS exhibition reaches its end, let’s focus on the last three partaking creatives: Baiba Ladiga – Kobayashi, Matic Veler & Loredana Bahorić. Plus just a quick reminder: the exhibition closes on Sunday, 10 January 2016 at 6 PM!
It is time to announce some more designers who are about to create their own IDENTITY DRESS for the 3rd edition of the project: Dajana Ljubičić, Yong Kyun Shin, and Stefán Orschel-Read, internationally recognised talents of the new generation.
As the 3rd edition of IDENTITY DRESS is getting closer every day, we would like to share with you the first three among designers taking part this year. Alongside those who will create their own IDENTITY DRESS are: Leandro Cano, Yojiro Kake and Derek Lawlor.
Assaad Awad is, without a doubt, a distinctive name of the Madrid fashion scene. With his unique conceptual approach on design, bold aesthetics and uncompromising devotion in supporting craftsmanship, this IDENTITY DRESS 2014 designer has recently contributed to Museo del Traje, the garment museum of Spain. Based on a selection of designs by the legendary Cristóbal Balenciaga, Assaad created an hommage to “the master of us all”, as Balenciaga got respectfully labelled by the infamous monsieur Dior.
It is official! The 3rd edition of IDENTITY DRESS project goes independent!
IDENTITY DRESS 2015 exhibition with its opening show will take place on 19 November 2015 at the National Museum of Slovenia, Ljubljana, and will stay there until 13 December 2015.
The success of the first edition of IDENTITY DRESS, an enthusiastic creative experiment with a diverse palette of international design talents involved, indicated a great potential of the concept. Keeping the coherence of the basic idea, the second edition of IDENTITY DRESS was brought to life as one of the major program components of the international festival for creative industries Month of Design Ljubljana 2014 (Ljubljana, Slovenia, EU). One basic dress pattern cut, many interpretations! The exhibition with its opening show was undoubtedly a true fashion-related highlight in the region.

IDENTITY DRESS started as an idea of a creative experiment. One basic dress pattern cut, many interpretations. Nothing more, nothing less. The idea was brought to life by Eric Maj Potočnik in summer 2013 and its first edition was put on display in the autumn of the same year. Back then surprisingly low on budget for a fashion event, but with faith and confidence the idea could grow if nurtured well.
