Grew up in Serbia, after different attempts to become ballerina and inspired by theater costumes, Roksanda decided to take up fashion design and studied at the Faculty of Applied Arts in Serbia. After reading about Louise Wilson and Central St. Martins, she decided to continue her studies in London where she later met her husband. While studying for her MA she was offered modeling jobs and worked as a model for Storm agency up until her graduation.
Known for her elegantly cut and colorful dresses, Roksanda‘s designs sky-rocketed with popularity among many fashion-forward celebrities and socialites. Her label initially started as womenswear but is currently expanding to include swimwear and childrenswear (after recently having a baby daughter).
For her upcoming pre-fall 2012 collection, Roksanda Ilincic took her inspiration straight from home. She took inspiration from Legos and transformed them into bright colors of vivid red, acid yellows and electric blue while maintain geometric shapes to her pieces such as trapeze dresses, toned-down cuffs and peplums and also column dresses.
