Everybody loves Roksanda!

Heavy, grey clouds, wet streets, thick fog, busy people...and then, all the sudden like "boom", we have cyan, violet, coral orange, aqua blue, gold, cyclamen, beige, orange, turquoise, blue, navy, fuchsia...Those are all strong colors, and so is the designer who is using them: Roksanda! It's a very strong name who is breaking through the fashion world, just like those colors trough the heavy grey clouds.
Beautiful, and quite unique, Roksanda made her path not that easy. Born in Belgrade, Serbia, during the early 90's, Roksanda was studying both Architecture and Applied Arts in her native Belgrade. She admits it was not easy, but she made it. After finishing the studies, she went to Central St Martins College which she saw in the magazine: "Instead of food, i choose fashion magazines, and through them i learned of the Faculty 'Central Saint Martins', which i later enrolled".

The year that was crucial for her was 2003rd. Soon everybody knew about Roksanda.
One of the main inspirations for this, in itself, inspirational woman who is living in London, is the great Yves Saint Laurent. You can notice his influence in her work. She says that she adores dresses, who either long, short or medium, prevail in her collections. "1950's couture dresses are really precious and timeless: something I'm trying to portray in my work"...and sure she's doing it right! After all, fashion crowd is no't the only one who adores her work...celebrities fill their closets joyfully  with Roksanda's creations. 






Teški, sivi oblaci, gusta magla, zauzeti ljudi...i onda odjednom kao "boom", tu su cijan, ljubičasta, koralno naradžasta, akva plava, zlatna, ciklama, bež, naradžasta, tirkizna, plava, teget, fuksija...Ovo su sve snažne boje, baš kao i dizajnerka koja ih koristi: Roksanda! To je veoma jako ime koje se probija kroz svet mode, baš kao i oni sivi oblaci.
Prelepa, i prilično jedinstvena, Roksanda nije imala lak put do zvezda. Rođena u Beogradu, Srbiji, tokom ranih 90-ih, Roksanda je studirala istovremeno arhitekturu i primenjene umetnosti u Beogradu. Priznaje da nije bilo lako, ali je uspela. Posle završetka studija, otišla je na koledž Sveti Martin koji je videla u časopisu. "Umesto hrane, birala sam modne magazine, a preko njih sam i saznala za fakultet 'Central Saint Martins', koji sam kasnije i upisala".
Godina koja je bila presudna za nju, bila je 2003. Uskoro svi su znali za Roksandu.
Jedna od glavnih inspiracija za ovu, samu po sebi, inspirativnu ženu koja živi u Londonu, jeste veliki Yves Saint Laurent. Lako možete primetiti njegov uticaj u njenom radu. Kaže da obožava haljine, koje bilo da su duge, kratke ili srednje, preovladavaju u njenim kolekcijama. "Haljine visoke mode iz 1950. su zaista dragocene i vanvremenske: nešto što ja pokušavama da predstavim u svom radu"...i sigurno je da to radi dobro! Nakon svega, modna publika nije jedina koja obožava njen rad...poznate ličnosti svoje plakare zadovoljno pune Roksandinim kreacijama.
