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 has been quite a while since we published our last presentation on the partaking designers… So before the third edition of IDENTITY DRESS comes to its end let us shorty present three among partaking designers, currently showcasing their dresses at the National Museum of Slovenia.
In collaboration with Toyota Center Ljubljana, the IDENTITY DRESS 2015 partner, our team designed a creative challenge for our local public, fans and project followers in Slovenia! Pimp the new Toyota Yaris Hybrid with your own design identity and win a very special prize!

The 3rd edition of the IDENTITY DRESS exhibition is right behind the corner. And should you decide to visit it, make sure to also put an eye on accompanying exhibition I feel the Dress, supported by I feel Slovenia, the national brand of the Republic of Slovenia!
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.
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.
When thinking of what to write about in my first article on this website (which later didn’t turn out to be my actual first one), I realised one could simply talk about the project itself and explain IDENTITY DRESS through all forms. But to present it through the eye of the participant might be the most interesting one. More…

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.
While I was working on this article I went to the National Museum of Slovenia for about four times in a row, so one of their employees already asked me if I was becoming their daily visitor… I think my last visit dates back to my primary school years, so re-visiting it after quite a long time made me think about the attitude towards our own history. Are we aware enough of our national history? Are we proud of it?
