Fashionably Favoured

Here at Fashion Tales the passion for emerging talent is unwavering, and it's no secret that I adore under the radar artists. But, more importantly a deep appreciation goes out to designers who stand by their innovations, and take risks. Even if not immediately understood by a mainstream audienceit's all the more reason to be on my exclusive fashionably favoured list.

Creations by Serbia based designer George Styler, and London duo Riyka are two designers that stand out amongst many of my favourites at the moment. In Styler's Captivity collection the infusion of versatility is embedded throughout his pieces with an emphasis on brilliant colour (of the parrot), freedom, and society as inspiration. On the contrary, Riyka has simple, yet powerful impressions with their clever use of graphics by way of fabric selection contrasts and colour in their designs.

The 32nd Belgrade Fashion Week (BFW) recently showcased promising talent amongst many seasoned artists; some of whom stepped out of the industry's trendier seams and into a more forward thinking, and avant-garde catwalking suit.

At BFW three-dimensional designs and patterned combinations seemingly were at the vanguard of eye-catching fashions, yet sleek and minimalistic creations also made their presence known.

One thing is certain, this year the world of fashion has progressively struck a chord. An artistically epic note for all to love, rewrite, and play by ear. Whether melodic in soothing painterly prints or held together by the drums and bass of intergalactic interpretationsin these creations the favouring soundtrack of fashion was united by its diversity. It was a, "something for everyone compilation" that was sure to have one track to relate to.

Take a gander at my top picks of a few noteworthy designers to be on the look out for!

Boško Jakovljević's menswear pieces married the styling of modern sportswear and classic patterns into the collection.

Ivana Pilja and Peter Movrin took a playful approach toward illusion, print, and pattern. Pilja's strength was in transforming the entire body into printed art to be worn from head to toe. I was taken by the gloves as well! Her incredible eye for conceptual design is wonderfully executed. You may also catch a glimpse of Pilja's runway show seen here.

Slovenia based designer, Movrin showcased everything from geometric shapes in 3D form to animal inspired prints balanced with less ornate headdress pieces to complete his looks. I encourage you to view some of Movrin's other amazing works here

  3. Wow, that first dress is amazing, it must have taken so much time to have made that! (It almost looks like it's beading along the top, it's just gorgeous looking.)  I do love the really shimmery print on the last pantsuit, that looks like it would be amazing to wear out in the sunshine!
