A designer from Nis, Milica Trickovic talked about her experience from Milan Fashion Week and told us what can be expected from her new collection:
I’ve had luck because my career started growing with SFW, so it was easier for me to have a breakthrough. Participating at MFW is every designer’s dream. The audience was very supportive of my collection which I will show at SFW. I have embroidered motifs of our medieval icons of art, which was very well received in Milan, whereas her the opinions varied, but I feel that our medieval art deserves a place in fashion – says Milica.
