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.

Ana Ljubinković’s name was no stranger to me. In fact, as a buyer I had come across her work that got me right at the first glance. Her dramatic yet playful use of colours, shapes and details felt intriguing. I never got to meet her in person, but I must tell I admire her path so far and her approach to fashion, in a limited market, in a limited industry. To me Ana represents the fighter, she knows why she is here to design for; without compromising her ideals and visions she manages to break through in her region and domain.
