Many of you probably don’t know that I have a Croatian heritage. Croatia is very famous for it’s beaches, sometimes the food, but it was never ever ever ever mentioned in connection with fashion. And I honestly thought the Croatian fashion scene is dead. Because I never heard about a designer, the pictures of fashion shows I have seen looked cheap as fuck (and after a little more research I found the good shows) and I guess the fashion community is sooo soo so small. And this needs to be changed, because there is some dope ass talent running around. Like Dioralop by Andreja Bistricic & Maja Merlic.

The Croatian duo met in Zagreb, which lead to the launch of their label. Andreja obtained degree at Faculty of Textile and Technology in Zagreb/Croatia. Graduated from Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in 2009 specializing in womenswear, whilst expanding knowledge interning at Alexander McQueen studio. Maja is an architect, with strong sense of texture and style.
Are you ready for SS14?

This technique yields various colours and patterns, which are digitally printed in the UK, using variety of luxurious fabrics. Inspiration is drawn from subcultures, street fashion and issues with an emotional impact. Andreja’s taste for cut and deconstruction perfectly balanced with Maja’s vision of print and textile manipulation. Every season designers like to tell stories in different ways, using ambiguous fabrics, proportion and silhouette. DIORALOP designs are for person that is uncompromising, aware and individual. And that’s why they are the shit I’m talking about!

And I don’t know if you understand how proud I am!
Puno vam hvala za ovu prekrasnu kolekciju!
