VFS´s Ones to Watch Anja Mlakar contributes with Fashion 156.

Anja Mlakar graduated from Central Saint Martin, and selected as Vauxhall Fashion Scout Ones to Watch this year, has contributed with Fashion 156 for a week. With an interview, a show report and a love list, this young designer collaborates with this online fashion magazine that provides a celebratory platform for emerging talent. Is good to see how young minds join forces to create a successful career.

In the collaboration, is highlighted Mlakar´s challenging and reinterpreted traditional forms and how they meld 3d, geometrical design with classic cocktail dresses and athletic notes.
Twisting and applying her own vision of purity and elegance, she creates a new concept of woman clothing.

In the interview she founds her self inspired by architecture, and as she said she would like to see her models jumping from Flatiron Building in New York. As well she would create a spider woman if she could reinterpret any infamous costume, or she will design fencing uniforms, and she wont choose any place to get stranded as her boat can´t sink.
This is the personality of this great young designer who´s designs has called the attention of Lady Gaga.

Collaborations like this are great, as we can see our designers growing not only in their fashion skills, but as well in others aptitudes and becoming mature creative talents. Being multi-tasker is a major skill to be an innovative mind, and be successful nowadays.

Anja is not the only Ones To Watch designer that collaborates with Fashion 156, David Longshaw now interviews other young talented designers. With not only a natural talent  for fashion, but also for illustration, he develops his journalist side, and everything he does has his own signature and personality.

In VFS we celebrate young designers joining together, growing not only in their fashion skills. Even more important we celebrate unique personalities that translate into innovative designs.
