Barbara Vrbančič, magistrica akademska oblikovalka tekstilij in oblačil ter bivša članica skupine Young@Squat, v svojih oblikovalskih rešitvah pogosto združuje preteklost in sodobnost. Velikokrat uporablja stare ročne tehnike ali vintage inspiracije, ki jih nadgradi in avtorsko reinterpretira v sodobne, urbane kose ali projekte. Njeno delo je v zadnjem času prepoznano tudi iz strani javnosti (zmaga na natečaju Mlad ustvarjalen Chevrolet 2013, priznanje žirije Mercedez Benz fashion award 2016, finalistka Fashion Scout See 2018…).

Barbara Vrbancic completed her studies at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering in Ljubljana and gained the title Master of Science in Textile and Clothing Design. As a fashion and textile designer, she often combines past and modernity in her design solutions. She often uses old manual techniques or vintage inspirations, which are upgraded and reinterpreted in contemporary, urban fashion pieces or projects. Her work has also recently been recognized by the public (winning the Young Creative Chevrolet 2013 competition, Mercedez Benz Fashion Award 2016, finalist at Fashion Scout See 2018…).
