Meet 5 amazing fashion brands from Serbia that you’ll want to know about.
Creativity and talent know no boundaries. Often found in unexpected places, creative hubs can be born out of the human need to paint our own reality. Looking for an escape in creativity and arts might be one of the reasons why Belgrade’s been named one of the five most creative cities in the world by BBC. And while their article focuses on the art, my attention was drawn to the Serbian fashion scene.
Belgrade, the capital city of Serbia, has been a regional fashion center since it started hosting Belgrade Fashion Week in 1996. Ever since, it has shown that while funding might be scarce in the area, creativity and talent are not. Some names like Roksanda Ilinčić have become known around the world. Others are getting more and more recognition as international media starts to pay attention. Thanks to the internet Serbian brands are reaching wider audiences with social media. And we just love how easy it is becoming to discover new talent.
