EN: Initial inspiration for this dress was this image from Pinterest, and my plan was to use this same pattern for a dress, only to make a net of the fabric stripes instead of thick straps. Soon there appeared a chance to wear a dress, a wedding, and I had already begun to make a net of this beautiful green fabric. But as it was very transparent even doubled, I decided to abandon the first idea – I didn’t want to line the dress as I actually liked the sensuality and mystique of slight transparency. That’s why I made the skirt of the same fabric, which is itself composed of 2 layers, and serves as a lining,  but also emphasizes the shape of the body, that is subtly showing out of a straight cut, open dress, just like the skin is partially visible through the fabric. The part of the skin that is revealed above the high waist was a perfect solution to balance the net, like the last piece in the puzzle. The dress has a sewn in strapless bra, which makes it perfectly comfortable.

Futuristic cut, delicate color, simplicity and something bit unusual – these are all features of this dress that perfectly suit my current sensibility. I feel that through this creation I have managed to get closer to the essence of my feeling of art of fashion design. When I sew for others i am always guided by their personality, or my experience of their qualities. But when I create something I have to wear, I find myself in front of  a much more difficult challenge. The clothing doesn’t express one’s wishes or my inspiration by another being anymore, but it needs to be a reflection of my deepest emotions and worldviews. Through the designing I am becoming aware of my inner being, and it is necessary to find in yourself enough sensitivity, spirit and creativity to make something ordinary and material, such as dress, become a representation of something internal and newly discovered. The most valuable here are not the sewn things, but rather the long-term, dark, slick and endlessly exciting process of self-comprehension.

SR: Početna inspiracija za ovu haljinu je bila ova slika sa Pinteresta, a plan je bio da sašijem haljinu ovakvog kroja, samo da umesto debelih bretela napravim mrežu. Uskoro se pojavila i prilika za nošenje haljine, jedna svadba, a ja sam već bila počela da pravim mrežu od divnog zelenog platna. No, kako je platno bilo jako providno čak i duplirano, odlučila sam da odustanem od početne zamisli – nisam htela da stavljam postavu jer mi se, u stvari, dopao utisak senzualnosti i mističnosti koji izaziva poluprovidni materijal. Zato sam napravila suknju od istog materijala. koja se i sama sastoji od 2 sloja, a koja služi kao postava tj. podsuknja. Ona istovremeno divno naglašava oblik tela, koji, kao što  se i koža nazire kroz materijal, suptilno izviruje iz ravno sečene, otvorene haljine. Deo kože koji se otrkiva iznad visokok struka  bio je savršeno rešenje da se napravi ravnoteža sa mrežom, kao poslednji komadić u slagalici. Haljina ima ugrađen brus bez bretela, što je čini savršeno udobnom.

Futuristički kroj, neupadljiva boja, jednostavnost i neobičnost – sve su to osobine ove haljine koje trenutno savršeno odgovaraju mom senzibilitetu. Osećam da sam kroz ovu kreaciju uspela da se približim esenciji mog doživljaja umetnosti modnog dizajna. Kada šijem za druge uvek mi je prvi putokaz njihova ličnost, ili moj doživljaj njihovih osobina. Ali, kad šijem za sebe, preda mnom je mnogo teži izazov. Umesto da odelo izrazi nečije želje i moju inspirisanost drugim bićem, potrebno mi je da ono bude odraz mojih najdubljih emocija i pogleda na svet. Kroz samo dizajniranje, u stvari, osvešćujem svoju unutrašnjost, a neophodno je u sebi pronaći i dovoljno osetljivosti, duha i kreativnosti da bi nešto obično i materijalno, kao što je haljina, u stvari postalo reprezentacija nečeg unutrašnjeg, novootkrivenog. Ono što je dragoceno nisu sašivene stvari, nego upravo taj dugotrajni, tamni, klizavi i beskrajno uzbudljivi proces samospoznaje.
