Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week / Day 2

The first day of shows. 

Yesterday was Day 2 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Ljubljana and the first day of runway shows, which were presented in two parts. The first part of the evening was reserved for MEHLE, Natasa Persuh and D'Alpaos; and the second part for AKULTURA, Dajana Ljubičić and Sofia Nogard. 

FIRST PART:  MEHLE, Natasa Persuh and D'Alpaos

MEHLE opened the shows of day 2. Maja Mehle and Miha Fabio Kalan presented a collection full of functional silhouettes, clean lines and designs that express confidence and desire for unconventional way of dressing. My favourite pieces from the collection were the coats and a gorgeous long velvet dress. 
Natasa Persuh presented an almost all black collection, with gorgeous detailed sleeves and structured clothing. Her collection felt the most timeless out of them all. She found her main inspiration for the collection in street-style, current cultural and artistic events, movies and history. Collection was the perfect option for a woman that is constantly on-the-go. I have to say I loved all the pieces in the collection presented - especially the combination of socks and heels, which the designer also loves to wear herself. 
D'Alpaos was my favourite designer of the first part. Italian designer, who started with designing unisex pieces and experimenting with forms and materials. I had the opportunity to speak with him a few words about his newest collection backstage. He said that he mostly designs black pieces and with this collection, he wanted to emphasise different pops of colours, not only in his designs, but with visuals and makeup as well. The inspiration for the black pieces came from the current state of affairs in Europe, from political issues to terrorist attacks. With a variety of colours, which occurred from time to time, he wanted to bring out a brighter part - a change of mindset and a different way of perceiving the events in Europe.

SECOND PART: AKULTURA, Dajana Ljubičić and Sofia Nogard 

The second part of the evening started with AKULTURA. Alenka Globočnik Fabjan is a desginer who always searches for new ways of wearing clothes with a touch of avant-garde - her line is known for asymmetrical and clean lines. Her main focus with this collection was to bring out the absolute femininity. She found her inspiration in the social subcultures and she experimented with the idea of soft transparency of materials and contrasting metal accessories, to show the combination of power and sensuality. I also loved the hats that models were wearing throughout the show because they completed the story and connected the looks together perfectly.
Dajana Ljubičić deisgns for a free, confident and dynamic woman. She is one of those designers that doesn't let the form define her work process and is known for her minimalistic approach. She found the inspiration for her MBFWLJ collection in different emotions and other contributing factors.
Sofia Nogard's collection was titled Saturday morning. Mija Curk and Boštjan Mljač later explained that they invisoned a woman dressed in her man's clothes, on a sleepy, foggy saturday morning - the best way to describe their unisex collection. It was a mixture of street style and high fashion, filled with different, very sophisticated shades of silver. Their clothes represent two different complex personalities: man/woman who are best friends or enemies, mother or father, daughter or son, idols or rebels; they are unique in their complexity. Designers used the inspiration of Slovene culture and tradition and reinterpreted it in a modern way, through the usage of new materials, forms, colour combinations and silhouettes. With strong, almost futuristic pieces in the collection, they presented a juxtaposition to the tittle, Saturday morning. They were definitely my favourite designers from the second part of shows. 

OUTFIT: DAY 2 

This outfit is very dear to my heart. It is actually my aunt's wedding dress (from 1980), so it was exactly 36 years ago that she wore this beautiful dress on one of the most important days of her life. I was really thankful that she lent me her dress - I love wearing and representing pieces that carry a story (the same reason I wore my kimono on last year's MBFWLJ). This dress really reminds me of the late 70s, which is of course a very popular trend at the moment. I paired the dress with Truffle high block heel sandals, which you can purchase from Asos. They looked great on, but to be honest, they were killing my feet by the end of the night. I also added some gold rings, Mango clutch and MKS choker, which I wore as a bracelet.
So this is my outfit for day 2 of fashion week and thanks again to my aunt, for lending me her gorgeous dress and making day 2 of MBFWLJ even more special! 

Today is the day 3 of MBFWLJ, the last day. Can't wait to see the shows!
