IMPOSING ACCESSORIES

 

IMPOSING ACCESSORIES

 

Initially I started as an accessories designer. My first collection was handmade handbag collection. It was made from different kinds of fabrics and the handles were made from wood or bamboo. They looked very attractive and I sold the whole collection very quickly, mostly to my friends and friends of friends.
Later as I started to study costume design, I was introduced to new ideas and understood connecting all the pieces within a collection. 
That gave my work a new dimension and some much needed focus and discipline. Pieces of accessories started following the clothes collection in a flattering way.
Collections usually consist of chunky hardware bracelets,  big statement necklaces or earrings. 
In some collections an architectural influence is very visible. Besides architecture I find inspiration in art, product design, and  also nature with the fluid shapes  of water, flowers, sea shells.
Materials that I use vary from wood to pearls, glass beams, bones and gemstones. Every piece is handmade and some are custom made for special occasions or clients.                                                                                                       I was always drawn to designing imposing accessories because they can define the whole look. Any outfit with the right accessories is a winning combination and what I call style.

 

Svoju dizajnersku karjeru sam započela kao dizajner nakita. Moja prva kolekcija bile su ručno izrađene ručne torbice. Bile su izrađene od različitih vrsta tkanina a ručke od savijanih grana ili bambusa. izgledale su atraktivno i vrlo brzo sam prodala cijelu kolekciju, uglavnom prijateljima i njihovim prijateljima.

 Kasnije, na studiju kostimografije, upoznala sam se s novim idejama i shvatila koncept povezanosti kolekcije.           To je mom radu dalo novu dimenziju i vrlo važan fokus i disciplinu. Modni dodaci počeli su skladno pratiti kolekcije odjeće.                                                                                                                                          

Kolekcije nakita se uglavnom sastoje od velikih komada nakita, ogrlica ili naušnica. U nekima je vidljiv utjecaj arhitekture. Osim arhitekture inspiriraju me umjetnost, produkt dizajn ali i priroda sa fluidnim oblicima vode, skoljki ili florala.                                                           

Materijali koje koristim variraju od drveta do bisera, staklenih perli, kosti ili poludragog kamenja. Svaki komad je rađen ručno, a neki i po narudžbi za specijalne prilike klijenata.                                                                            

Oduvijek me je privlačilo dizajniranje impozantnog nakita jer može definirati cijelokupni izgled. Svaka kombinacija uz pravilno odabrane modne dodatke je dobitna i ono što bih ja nazvala stilom.
