To say Roksanda Ilincic has had a stellar year is an understatement. While the rest of us were battling with a bleak January, Roksanda saw none other than Michelle Obama wearing one of her dresses on a state visit, propelling the designer onto the global fashion stage. From then on, Roksanda has dressed everyone from Kate Middleton and Keira Knightley to Carey Mulligan and Florence Welch. She has also launched a gorgeous swimwear collection and became one of the newest designers for Debenhams’ Edition range. The cherry on top of her perfectly frosted cake is a new collaboration with designer boutique Matches.
Roksanda has revisted her design archives and reworked some of her key designs, resulting in a stunning six-piece capsule collection in her signature jewel tones and decadent draping. Roksanda commented: “Making a great exit is every bit as important as making a great entrance. I love to make a feature of the back of dresses – it’s part of viewing a design in 360 degrees.”
