SERBIAN DESIGNERS CONTINUE TO DAZZLE ON NEW YORK‘S RUNWAYS
PROMOTING SERBIA FASHION WEEK AT NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
Fall 2017 is already marked as the season when the largest number of Serbian fashion designers yet will be promoted across the most prominent fashion weeks across the world. The first event of the season is also one of the most significant ones – the New York Fashion Week – during which which Zvonko Marković, Marina Ilić and Sanja Bobar will present their collections to the American fashion It crowd , on September 10.
Two years ago, Serbia Fashion Week signed a contract with the Art Heart Fashion – USA platform, enabling local designers a spot on the official New York Fashion Week schedule. The contract incorporates the most prestigious US fashion weeks – New York, Los Angeles, and Washington DC – and our presence there for the fourth time in a row has naturally led to some of our designers becoming regular darlings of the global fashion elite, shining a bright light on the Serbian fashion scene. The previous few New York Fashion Weeks have been covered over 1.5 million times by worldwide media, and with them, Serbian fashion representatives the likes of Zvonko Marković, Bata Spasojević, Vasilije Kovačev, Sanja Bobar, Ibrahim Vukelj, Vesna Milopević and Marina Mićanović. This year, on September 10, Zvonko Marković and Sanja Bobar will be reprising their roles on one of the most coveted runways in the world, and Marina Ilić will make her debut.
Serbia Fashion Week will have the unique opportunity to promote fashion events in its organization, the city of Novi Sad, and the Republic of Serbia with a video which will be shown on the one fashion week that has the largest media coverage in the world.
“Serbia Fashion Week has been very successful in presenting regional designers to New York Fashion Week, enabling them to network with some of the industry’s biggest buyers and influencers. Each round of applause is a promise of good things to come for the Serbian fashion scene, as well as a delightful representation of our country. The consistancy behind of Serbian designers showcasing their collections at New York Fashion Week for the fourth time in a row will surely contribute to the revitalization of our own textile industry”, says Svetlana Horvat, President of the National Fashion Chamber of Serbia and Serbia Fashion Week.
The most prominent Serbian fashion designers will be making numerous fashion week appearances in Paris, Milano, St. Petersburg, Prague, Athens and more throughout September and October.
