LJFW, Ljubljana Fashion Week is often about the pomp and circumstance of the runway. However, in the midst of model euphoria there was an amazing intimate exhibit, titled NE[S]KONČNO_NEIZBRISLJIV (trans. INFINITELY_INDELIBLE), dedicated to the late Slovenia based fashion designer – Zoran Garevski. It took place in the atrium of the city hall of Ljubljana, 20 – 24 September 2016.
The waters have calmed down since the recent April 2016 edition of LJFW – Ljubljana Fashion Week, which means it is time to shake off the first impressions and take a closer look at the showcased collections. More…
Today, Wednesday, April the 13th seems like a great start for LJFW – Ljubljana Fashion Week as the almost summer like temperatures liven up the mood and set a long awaited anticipation to rest with today’s opening. Moving from last year’s location on Kongresni trg to a brand new space, Trg republike, is most exciting as the possibilities for providing an unforgettable experience are made.

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.
I met Nika Ravnik, Ljubljana based designer of niOka at the first edition of IDENTITY DRESS back in October 2013. To be more precise we were both part of the selection and happened to sit in front of each other at the welcome lunch that the IDENTITY DRESS team had organised for us. Her friendliness and simplicity struck me right away; when she talked to me she had a huge smile and we started chatting and getting to know each other over the meal.
What does it mean to be constrained within outside imposed boundaries?
Life is unpredictable. We are living amongst an ecosystem with trillions of components in which we are constantly exposed to an almost infinite number of outside factors that can just happen in a second and transform the rest of our life forever, by sometimes changing the course to somehow very drastic angles and directions.
