About her collection:
// I love the colorful clothes she wears and the way the sunlight plays upon her hair. I hear the sound of a gentle word on the wind that lifts her perfume through the air. I’m pickin up good vibrations, she is giving me excitations. Close my eyes, she is somehow closer now. Softly smile, I know she must be kind. When I look in her eyes, she goes with me to a blossom world… Ah my. what elation, I don’t know where but she sends me there, ah my my what a sensation, ah my my what elations, ah my my what…
Gotta keep those lovin good vibrations… A happenin with her..Ahhhhhhhh
Good good good good vibrations, Im pickin up good vibrations. // – Is how perfectly The Beach Boys summarize Rozalija in their song Good Vibrations.
Rozalija, inspired by colorful Salvation Mountain by Leonard Knight in California Desert Area, USA, was designed as my 3rd years’ final collection as a student of Textile and fashion design at the Faculty of Natural Science and Engineering under the mentorship of prof. Almira Sadar. As our main theme was Collaboration, I collaborated with knitting studio Pislak and salon Velana Living, both giving me their waste materials; either waste material cuts or damaged materials that can’t be used in the following process.
Rozalija represents patchwork of everything that I dream of, think of and believe in. She spreads good vibrations, positivity, environmental consciousness of the fast fashion industry and any other industry that impacts our Mother Nature in a bad way.
