Hanging out with only the finest

It's lovely to be recognized and appreciated as a "pioneer in contemporary fashion", as they say here. I wonder if Slovenia will ever realize that?
It's also very nice to be side by side with Peter Movrin (funny coincidence too).. one of the rare jewels in slovenian design.

Paper Crows - When Friends Survive (Official Video)

My dress has left the borders of this small country, found it's way through the designers jungle of Not Just A Label, selected by the watchful eye of Marie Claire's style director, into this new video and onto the body of this lovely young singer, Emma.
Black printed pointy shoulder's appearing in this video, yeah, that's my baby. My black pointy shoulder child has also been worn recently at Bestival festival.
Their music is, by the way, really awesome!

Two-seater sold!

Last sunday BI-KO-FE, Multipraktik and Rompom team had organized and hosted an auction of uniquely refurbished old furniture pieces, inviting several artists of younger generation to collaborate. I got to work on this lovely two-seater sofa.
The auction went really really well, all pieces, except one chair, were sold for more than twice their reserve price, some even more. I must brag a little now: my two-seater was sold for the highest price at the auction. :)

Timeless elegance with Maja Keuc for Peko

Here are the results of creative collaboration between Peko, Connecta advertising agency, and us, the artistic girls: Marta Lamovsek behind the lens, Spela Veble, make up & hair expert, and me, responsible for the artistic direction, dress design and overall styling.
I also must thank the Neon family, Ai and Jaka, for their vintage jewellery, and my lovely lady Rosvita Toplak for her great collection of hats & gloves. And to Maja Keuc, for being patient, modest, lovely and collaborative, even though, as she said, she's not a professional model. You rock! :)

Sabina Mali wearing DP at Playboy's 10 year anniversary

I met this beautiful naughty little princess while cooking together in a reality cooking show just a while ago. I never really thought I would get along with people from another planets, but life is full of surprises, and this little Snow White has just landed perfectly on planet DP. It was an instant mutual chemistry followed by creative collaborations.
We had some technical difficulties while working on a styling for the Playboy's 10 years anniversary party, because of her arm injury. We could not send her there half naked, exposing arms and all, but then again, why not making a grand entry with a twist? Why go for the expected Playmates tits and ass outfit?
I think that nipples and killer boobies lurking from the finest silky fabric was a good choice.
What do you think?

Lollobrigida @ Kino Siska wearing DP

I am being deeply involved in a creative process for Lollobrigida stage costumes, exploring the world of plastic materials. Yes, plastic. I am trying to incorporate plastic materials like PET, PP, PC plates with fine glittery textiles. I wanna get a lot of volume, and try to do something that will make them look like lollipop-trash-couture-electro-punk band they intend to be. For me it is quite a challenge, technically, as well as fashion wise, because I am a fine piece of arse and I only work with fine fabrics. Well well, somehow I always manage to break my rules and resolutions, heheh..
I am actually very excited.
Not to mention that in order to gather this band and take their measurements I had to do it through Skype, supervising it while their friends/girlfriends were flapping around their bodies with a meter, because it's almost impossible to get them in one place. Good luck to me!

Here is a another video of Lollobrigida performing in Kino Siska, our initial collaboration. Ida and Petra wearing my pieces, of course.

Collaborating with Lollobrigida

This is how I love doing business with people: meeting my future client while wasted together at a decadent party in Budapest, expressing mutual love halfway through facebook, and then: voila! the next show I am already taking measurements of the band members groins.
Ida is a totally fab person, but of course she's Aries, like me.:) That's why we fell in love in a first place...
