At the international fashion event in Rotterdam, CATWALK4U, I was presenting my 20th anniversary fashion show, which at the same time marked ten years of the existence of my fashion label.
The event took place at the exquisit, luxurious club venue Villa Thalia.
Besides the amazing energy that everybody brought with him, I will remember this event for its biggest fusion of different cultures, different colours of skin, styles, different languages… It was extraordinary.
The pieces of collection are a combination of daytime and evening dresses. There are many different occasions in the day, each dress is to find it’s purpose.
I always start from myself, what is missing in my wardrobe, taking care to be unique and to emphasize my personality.
The most touching moment was at the end of the show, when for the first time in my career I was accompanied by my sister out on to the catwalk.
The hug, the laughter, the tears.
Diae wears DANKA KAROVIC dress
She is the youngest colleague that I ever had the privilege to get to know. Jacky is nine years old and she already had her fashion show! The dress she is wearing is her own design. Determined, bright, self confident, different. She has left a deep impression on me and I could indentify the energy that I had at her age, knowing exactly what I wanted in my life, guided by a beating heart.
