BARBARA VRBANČIČ

Barbara Vrbančič, je oblikovalka tekstilij in oblačil ki, 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. V novejših kolekcijah so izrazitejši kosi, ki so ustvarjeni ročno- kvačkani, oziroma so pleteni na ročnem pletilnem stroju. Njeno delo je prepoznano tudi iz strani javnosti (zmaga na natečaju Mlad ustvarjalen Chevrolet 2013, priznanje žirije Mercedez Benz fashion award 2016…).

Barbara Vrbančič, is a textile and clothing designer who often combines the past and the present in her design solutions. She often uses old hand techniques or vintage inspirations, which she upgrades and reinterprets in her own way into modern, urban pieces or projects. In newer collections, the most pronounced pieces are those created by hand- crochet, or are knitted on a hand- knitting machine. Her work is also recognized by the public (winning the Young Creative Chevrolet 2013 competition, the recognition of the Mercedes Benz fashion award jury 2016 …).
