From the 5th untill 7th of October our capital Ljubljana, Slovenia will transform into a stage with vibrant colours, ballsy outfits, crazy bags and funny shoes. And I love it! During every Fashion Week people let loose a bit and are willing to experiment with the way they dress. And this is something I long for during the hole year. Fashion can be fun, it can take you too your happy place and it can be invigorating! These are the things I will be looking for on the runway at Gospodarsko razstavišče, Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre.
Because yes, we are going to be there front row and we’ll take you with us on a trip through a kaleidoscop of images and impressions!
Under the watchful eye of a creative director and producer Sašo Radović in collaboration with Autocommerce and Pristop a team of approx 100 people are working hard on giving us 3 days of pure eye pleasure.
MBFWLJ is giving us the opportunity to see the latest works of 17 fashion designers. They are also giving young fashion designers the opportunity to win Mercedez-Benz Fashion Award. In that regard Sara Valenci and Kaja Julija Hrovat got a chance to present their work on the runway with creme de la creme of fashion design.
This years prize consists of a 1000,00€ and the opportunity to design women’s tops for Lee Cooper. The brand is available in Maxi department store and Modiana shops. Winner will be anounced and presented on the openening night of the 5thof October.
On the 6th we will get a chance to see and hear visionaries and artists in an interesting debate titled Does design sell? Creative director of Pristop will host Jurij Sadar and Oskar Kogoj. Among other interesting things we will be able to find out more about the new collection of silver jewelry titled Skrivnosti (Secrets) and collaboration between Oskar Kogoj and Zlatarna Celje.
Festive feeling and excitement about the upcoming event has alredy kicked in. Some of the fashion designers, bloggers, friends and supporters of MBFWLJ, among others the mayor of Ljubljana Zoran Jankovič, have alredy met in the Zlatarna Celje shop in Ljubljana for a frendly gathering.
We will be there, supporting our local community, our designers and their work. Because they have something to show!
