I was thrilled that I was able to attend many Art Hearts Fashion Shows during #NYFW2016. Below are a few highlights and some of my favorite moments.
Marina Micanovic / Zvonko Markovic / Bata Spasojevic FW/16 Best of Serbia Fashion Week
(NewYork, NY) Art Hearts Fashion welcomes the best of Serbia Fashion Week to New York Fashion Week. Designers Marina Micanovic, Zvonko Markovic Couture, and Bata Spasojevic showcased wonderful collections with European flair. Marina Micanovic opened the day with the collection “Rhythm of Asymmetric”. Recognizable cuts, unusual forms, and an abundance of unique handicraft details are her personal identity in design. The artistic and innovative approach to fashion combines elements of baroque and punk with clean lines.
Designer Zvonko Markovic Couture, a couturier from Belgrade, Serbia presented a stunning collection defined by a true sense of sensuality and a certain femininity. Zvonko recently presented at Paris Couture week and is the only Serbian designer to reach such prestigious accreditation.
Designer Bata Spasojevic closed the show with “HARD ANGEL” a collection for men and women. Inspired by a mix of styles, including punk rock, rock ‘n’ roll and futurism, the form and construction of the clothes showcases asymmetry and sculpted design.
Through our partnership with Serbia Fashion Week we have connected designers from accross the world to showcase as part of the official fashion week calendar in New York, Los Angeles and Miami.
