Fashion Week and all there is to it

Fashion week is over and I'm back celebrating simple life. It was stressful, I'm not going to lie and say it was a piece of cake, but... ... I am SO GREATFUL to collaborate with this wonderful designer Aleksandra Brlan; thank you for inviting me to be a part of this great occasion. In few weeks we'll host a showroom with both of our collections from FW (more info coming soon). Now, that all the fuss is over, I can share that my biggest fear was that this huge and heavy pieces would have fallen down while walking down the runway. As you can probably tell from the pictures, I've chosen to walk a very thin line between experimental wearable sculptures and actual jewellery while creating this new objects. But it all turned out great and I'm happy! Also the Fashion Week Boutique was once again a great experience, with many great accessories designers that I admire and love to wear such as Pleksimanija and TMpriboljški.

It's seeing true dedication that comes with the challenge of creating something that represents you as a designer. The backstage happening was kinda manic, but I managed to get things straight - also thanks to my dear friend Iris for being there in this critical moments, helping me with all the rings and necklaces! aleksandra-brlan-4_i600 aleksandra-brlan-3_i6001382919_10151912221074264_2129576651_n 1378031_10151912221109264_2049919869_naleksandra-brlan-5_i600_mg_4729_i600The highlight was definitely looking up that screen, watching the models walking down the runway, actually wearing something that I created and then - that surreal moment - when Aleksandra and I went to the runway to wave to the visitors and cameras. You can see the photo below; my face just froze from all the excitement and adrenalin. 988306_582197395173671_1125669122_nI would also like to take this opportunity and thank fashion blogger and model, the gorgeous Ajda Sitar and Lea Perovšek for wearing my jewellery at fashion week events.

She was also one of the best dressed at the second day of FW! fw2tejagoljevek_i600New challenges ahead of me: opening an Etsy shop only for the Birds collection, showrooming with Aleksandra, writing my diploma about miniature sculptures. It's going to be one busy era. Stay tuned for more updates and thanks for stopping by! DSC_0226x
