A fashion designer with an artist’s eye for bold, uncompromising color, Roksanda Ilincic studied architecture in Belgrade before following her dream to move to London and enrol at Central Saint Martins. There, she became part of a new generation of design talent that went on to transform London Fashion Week and the very definition of red-carpet dressing. Loved by women of substance the world over – her most recent front-row guests featured writer and activist Sinéad Burke and costume designer Sandy Powell, alongside actors Cate Blanchett and Vanessa Redgrave – Roksanda’s dresses have impact without ever having to shout. “It’s not standing out in an aggressive way or a shouting way, it's standing out in a beautiful, elegant, chic and understated way. I want to give women a certain soft power, a certain shelter and protection. It’s about being their friend, rather than being a dictator.” See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
