DESIGNER SAYS

The winter fairytale Widows & Soldiers tells a story about a woman struggling to survive in a traditional rural Slovenia. She is coping with agony when she is left alone on her farm, while her husband is fighting in war. When he returns she feels overjoyed, passionately consuming every minute of their time together. When he leaves for the 2nd time, she is left with nothing, but sweet memories. Tragedy hits her as she is told he died. Bereft of her marital life, she is unable to cope with her lost and falls apart.
My collection was inspired by the mourning fashion throughout history, from the end of 19.century to nowadays. It tells a story about widow women, who were left waiting for their soldier-husbands to return from wars, were re-cutting, redesigning patterns, recycling their husband’s old clothes and uniforms to create clothes for themselves. This is a story about tragic ways of love and life, about reminiscence, living in memories…
In this collection I used only the finest fabrics, silk taffeta, luxurious laces, wool and other fabrics with special effects (embroidery, prints, etc). I used a technique of silk-screen printing on certain fabrics and hand printed them with flower patterns of old Victorian wall-papers, stripes.
