Russian & Croatian Designers Debut At MAX-A-PORTER

I had a choice between quickly adding this, or going to the local Starbucks.  Lately it's just people sitting around pixelcounting, not very inspirational at all. (Then when Serbs come around trying to get me to go to some Serb Seslej-fest or some Karadzic-pajama fashion show, it gets really lame. They've really come to hate this blog ever since the beginning when I refused to do a post about the famous Serbian pointy-toe opanci. I like doing posts like this once in a while though, doing strictly sports or serious related pieces would be really boring.

Anyway, I like quite a few of the designs that I came across while getting some images for this one. Creative, edgy, good use of colours, alternative, hip..all that.  Seeing a woman wear a dress around here is rare beyond belief.  (About as rare as finding spicy mortadella, or any spicy version of deli meats actually, in the grocery stores......which is  rare, darn tootin' rare I'll tellya what  Based on footage of just the one fashion show from 2009 in the video below, this is something that I would most definitely check out.  Seems pretty interesting and fun.  I like eccentric and creative people and designs, just not into hats made out of bananas and stuff like that.  I'm pretty hard to pigeonhole as to what my fashion sense is. Basically, if it looks cool to me, then I like it.  That just about sums it up.

Croatian designers have been really coming up with some cool stuff over the years, and developing a name for themselves in the fashion industry world, not only in Croatia. I've come across articles and such, about Croatian designs being shown on the catwalks of Milan, Rome, Paris, Germany..all over the place.  Overall, good exposure for the Croatian (and Russian, cold war is over and some of the designs look like something t.A.T.u. would wear) fashion industry. Check out some more related pieces by hitting the "Croatian Fashion Designers" label at the bottom ...
