Croatian-born, Brick-Lane-based designer Vjera Vilicnik will exhibit her latest complicated yet cutting edge AW11 collection at LGN Events’ off-schedule London Fashion Week Show “A La Mode” in February 2011.
After studying Haute Couture embroidery at the esteemed Ecole Lesage, Vjera has had the honour of working with such stand out designers as Roksanda Ilincic, Tom Ford, Max Mara and within WGSN. These experiences have armed her with a wealth of knowledge about the industry and taught her to work hard to achieve her dream. Her designs, in her own words, are “classical with a twist, long lasting and handmade with love”.
Embroidery is often a basic idea in her collections and her AW11 range will be no exception. Vilicnik has a passion for embroidery which she developed during her time at Ecole Lesage and wants to prove that, despite its dated status, it can still be modern and on-trend. A glance to her SS11 collection shows carnations lovingly crafted out of silk chiffon and feathers hand-sewn onto pieces of clothing giving the look that tough edge.
Vjera Vilicnik is a designer set for great things. Her skill and mastery of tailoring and embroidery matched with her unique aesthetic make her debut cutting edge AW11 collection one not to be missed at London Fashion Week.
LGN Events’ seasonal London Fashion Week Show “A La Mode” Show exhibiting a countless of global emerging designers will take place at The Charing Cross Hotel, Strand on 18th-19th February 2011.
