Croatian born designer Morana Krajenic was born into a fashion family – persuing a creative profession, she attended the University of Zagreb to study Textile Technology.
Experimenting with origami thecniques – Morana created designs strongly influenced by traditional Japanise clothing. On progression on her garment construction, Morana created 3D garments made of sheet of paper – taking inspiration from suits of armour bringing a modern twist to a strong traditional aesthetic.
Morana focuses on the beauty of the female form. Breeching the boundaries of classic Western based womenswear – Morana incorporates seemingly simple garment aesthetic with intricate, complex construction.
This collection once again introduces paper as a means of expression – creating 3D objects from folded sheets of paper, again challenging traditional conceptions of Western womenswear. With curved 3D shapes the beauty of the female form and shilouette is emphasised throgh clean, strong lines and limitless combinations of the disogns themselves.
Inspired by both her own artistic inspirations and cultural influences, Morana uses complex thecniques and textiles to create beautiful simple yet artistically creative designs that combine knowledge and technique with art fashion.
