Roksanda Ilincic

Serbian-born designer Roksanda Ilincic brings and avant-garde, couture sensibility to her eponymous line, which debuted in London in 2005 as part of Topshop’s New Generation initiative.  But what makes Ilincic’s work especially unique is that her clothes are hand-sewn by a seamstress in her native Belgrade.  For a small, retro embellishments (poufs, trains, fur) have been worn by the likes of First Lady Michelle Obama and fashion-icon, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
