I was the designer at KOOI Knitwear for three years. During that period I was preparing my own houte couture and wedding dress brand named Manuela Manojlovic. 2015 I moved to Barcelona for CSP-for wedding dresses and houte couture at IED and from that time I live there.
My own brand is focused on the interplay between silk, cotton, specially hand painted-embroidered lace and volumenos forms, producing peaces of elegant indefference. Created with history of art, costume and music my mind, my collections and art strikes a fire balance between conceptual and wearable. My clothes have often provided with a point of reference " Returning to my clothes and art, was like living once more with my body and my emotions...my dresses are my own paintings".
I endevors to reveal distinguished character of wedding dresses and houte couture through modernisation of history costume representing all the beauty as I see with contemporary eyes.
