Five Minutes With George Styler

It’s always a special treat when I come across worthy talent to share. And, it’s even more thrilling to follow their fashion voyage along the way.

Right here, just last November I introduced you to Serbian fashion designer, George Styler, including him in the fashionably favoured roundup of designers to look out for! Since then, his creations have gained more esteem and commendable fashion nods, including Vogue Italy, amongst others. I caught up with the designer to give him a chance to tell us a bit more about his works.

 “I combine Balkan-ethno with other nation's styles with a touch of punk,” Styler said. In a glance, this is very apparent as well as intentional. It’s simple: he wants to capture and celebrate diversity between people and culture. 
“My collection is designed for people who want to be different and wear a unique piece of art. In my collections I'm in fact admiring differences in this world because differences are what make our world special,” Styler said.

He recently presented his new collection, Captivity II at 33rd Perwoll Fashion Week in Belgrade. This collection is purely a continuance from his debut, Captivity, which was inspired by a caged birdmetaphorically translated as modern slavery, and exploring human decoration with one’s freedom being deprived and expressed.

Captivity II is ingrained from an allegorical myth and drawn from the Slavic goddess Devana, guardian of the forest and wildlife alongside Veles. Much in love with the goddess, Veles ends up turning himself into a basil flower. With this mythological setting as inspiration, Styler infuses elements from the quixotic legend of the Slavic god and goddess. He interprets it through his use of pattern, colour, and the union of 3D technology with jacquard knitwear.

I’m certain we will be seeing more from Styler soon, and hopefully even gracing the runway for London Fashion Week in the near future.

George Styler on his work:
I would describe my creations as …
“Futuristic. World. Ethno.”

On his design process …
“I get the biggest inspiration during my travels, watching the way people live, and the way they face their problems. Then, I draw jacquards, sketches, and choose materials. I combine colours, design shoes, headpieces, etc.”

Regarding his art and inspiration:

“The world is my inspiration … the major motive is sending the message of love and peace.”

On the pieces he’s most proud of …
“The Bird of Paradise dress!” The Bird suit dress is my favourite because London stylists have lent that dress the most times!” 

A sculpted work of art implanted with daring colour ... yes, the bird dress (seen below) has garnered great appreciation from many, and we can understand why! Thanks George, we wish you much success!
