Spiga 2 is an innovative project headed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Now in its third year, the boutique in central Milan, Via Spiga specializes in distributing a pick of promising emerging designers.
Dolce&Gabbana want to support emerging talents by giving them visibility and retail space in an area they would fins difficult to penetrate at the start. This season we’ll focus on some of our favourites. This week: Roskanda Ilincic.
Belgrade-born Roksanda Ilincic has been showing her womenswear collections on the London Fashion Week schedule for the past 6 years. After studying both Architecture and Applied Arts in her native Belgrade, Roksanda Ilincic came to London where she gained her Masters Degree in Womenswear at Central St Martins. She has since won many accolades and nominations from the BFC New Designer of the Year to many Fashion East and Top Shop New generation awards.
Her refined and beautifully crafted demi-couture evening dresses sliced with her unmistakable modern cool as well as her unique sense of colour have gained her fans from the fashion and celebrity world. Kate Middleton, Lady Gaga, Michelle Obama and Florence Welch to name but a few of Roskanda’s celebrity client list.
