I’ve spent many nights reading the entries for the Marni for H&M “Fashion Obsessed” giveaway. Some were really funny, and some were just, well, crazy! I’m shaking my head at the things people do for fashion. Without further ado, the winner is…
Lucija is a fashion student attending University of Ljubljana in Slovenia Europe. She has a 7 year old crush on the Marni brand and wrote the following:
“I love the organic patterns mixed with geometric shapes. The materials and colours in their collections are just phenomenal! I always, like crazy, check images of their RTW collections during Milan fashion week when they release them. Then I get inspired with great ideas for my designs and try to imagine how wonderful it would be working for that brand. I’ve already applied for an Italian language course just to be one step closer to achieve my dreams, working for that brand.
Of course I was ecstatic when I found out they would launch a line for H&M. My excitement went on even more when I saw Sofia Coppola’s commercial on TV. I also love her movies! What a great collaboration:) I’ve clicked H&M page probably hundred times to see the pictures and stylings and imagined wearing them, combining them. The night before shopping D-day I couldn’t get a minute of sleep. I was so nervous I woke up at 3.00 am and instantly went by train to the capital of our state. When I get there it was already crowded with people and when they opened the store all the items were gone in a second. I was devastated. I couldn’t predict Slovenia has so many Marni lovers.”
When asked why she made the decision to attend fashion school to become a designer she explained: “I always felt I was already born as an artist. My mind was always occupied with images, ideas, dreams. As a child I liked all kind of arts equally but as I grow older my love for fashion becomes bigger than others. I started sketching dresses a lot and after a while also sewing them.
Lucija’s inspiration and fashion obsession translates into couture styling shown below:
