Posters designed by Ljubica Marcetic Marinovic with co-author Vlado Zrnic, for last year’s dance piece choreographed by Irma Omerzo, ‘Clothes Do Not Make A Man’ I find interesting  for several reasons.

Cool people from the Past: Tashamira

July 15, 2009

I wanted to post this on my blog for a long time… Tashamira was a Croatian dancer and choreographer whose real name was Vera Milcinovic. When I saw her photos from 1930’s at the exhibition ‘Avant Garde Tendencies in Croatian Art’ few years ago, I was completely thrilled.

First, her name sounds even today very hype and cool. But Tashamira’s ‘image’ was crucial, just take a look at her costume and hair cut. She was also one of those faces that were far ahead of their time.

Visions – Red

June 7, 2009

Here’s a small peek into the fashion exhibition ‘Visions – Red’ I visited recently in the ULUPUH Gallery. It was dedicated to the theme of red color in visions of Croatian fashion designers.

I saw several installations that I really, really liked; and I wanna share it with you, dear readers. All exhibited authors are members of ULUPUH’s Department for Fashion Design and some of them,  scenographers.
