ABOUT ME


Her creations are characterized by originality, functionalism, flawless design, great sense for details and harmony between the form, the pattern and the material she uses. The harmony between the nature and the person is distinctly noticeable in her works. They portray a high consciosness and responsibility of the designer to achieve the highest possible goals in the sense of quality design and perfection.

Stanislava Blatnik proved herself throughout her studies as an exceptionally talented and creative student with great mettle and heightened sensitivity. Currently she represents one of the most talented and promising fashion designers in Slovenia.

Designer from Slovenj Gradec is one of the most prominent Slovenian fashion names. Well over a decade she has been creating dresses worn by the biggest Slovenian stars.

For Stanka, the greatest challenge in fashion is combining incompatible. This is also the guiding principle behind her design of dresses for miss, femme fatale, and other occasions. Her dresses are breathtaking, they have won her many awards.

The reason I consider Stanka a great designer is that she is very personal and wants to get to know you, so she can then shape an idea about you, what kind of a dress would suit you, and what you like.

Her persistence and search for new challenges are not exhibited only in fashion, but also in her passion for traveling, even when that means driving for thousands of kilometers in Australia, Tasmania or New Zealand, or climbing the summits of Nepal or Peru. During these travels her camera captures precious small traveller details. It is this great sense for subtle details that makes her exceptional and unique creations so special.

Fashion performance in the fully crowded auditorium of manor Rotenturn, organized by fashion designer Stanka Blatnik, MA, with guests, was unprecedented. Such event has not been witnesed in Koroška yet and for this record there was nothing to choose or compare it with. Stanka Blatnik, who has won the contest of Slovenian designers for Miss Slovenia twice, this time cleverly used the organizational skills and also presented a broad range of her creativity. There were more than forty performers, and more visitors than at the Ljubljana Symphony Orchestra concert.

She has courageously crossed the line between fashion and design, which wants to be more than just a trendy way – a modus – how and what to wear.

It was a visual experience of the aesthetics of theatrical performance in terms of performance and choreography solutions. Textiles have become the second skin of young bodies, they transformed into living tissue and in front of us and we experienced the myth of nymph Daphne, who is turning into a tree. In all other aspects, the performance seemed to be full of baroque, yet subtle and fragile like the famous Bernini sculpture (Apolon and Daphne, 1621) from the precious white marble. As the sculptor was able to portray the unrest of a scared stone nymph, also Stanka Blatnik captured the beating bodies and the fabric “skin”.

Stanka Blatnik’s performance was not an experience of fancy or unique design – it was more. It was an artistic event, worth the room where we encounter art.

THE DRESSING CULTURE IN SLOVENIA

Master’s Thesis

ABSTRACT

Master’s thesis is a result of inspiration for professional writing and (critical) evaluation of fashion design. Such evaluation is rare in Slovenia and if it exists it is adjusted on behalf of media’s current events.

The first part of the master’s thesis deals with the way of dressing from psychological and sociological point of view. It raises questions about human personality and culture as well as concepts such as individuality, belonging to something, conveying a message, manner of expressing oneself and originality in dressing. It presents the theory of designing clothes.

The first part is followed by a brief psychological presentation of the Slovene nation, which explains our cultural consciousness and historical development that is in connection with our typical tendency not too exceed.

The central part concentrates on the development of fashion in Slovenia in the last decades. It combines information about Slovene textile industry and fashion design. It enables a better insight into past manners of organizing and function of mass textile industry in Slovenia as well as the comparison with its present critical situation, which is without any developed fashion systems.

The thesis deals with industrial fashion designers, who work on behalf of textile industry and its name, and independent liberal fashion designers. It also focuses on the most prominent Slovene fashion designers in the last decade and pays special attention to work and occasional presentations of the young generation of fashion designers.

The next part is about media, which influence fashion and the evaluation of fashion design at the most. The problems are focused on Slovene fashion magazines and fashion press, dailies, television and Internet.

The concluding part of the thesis is about my personal problematic with fashion design. It depicts my experimental creations, the research of human personality, individuality, the concept of originality and the creation of ordinary clothes.

I devote my research work to the development of fashion design from an experiment to the point of contact between a young aesthetically polished fashion designer and a future consumer who would be able to accept the designer’s creation as a special and unique work intended for recognizing the consumers personal needs, manifesting their own style and culture in which they appear.

KEY WORDS

The culture of dressing, the psychology of dressing, personality, individuality, appurtenance, manner of expressing oneself, style, conveying a message of dressing, fashion, clothes design, the development of Slovene fashion design, Slovene fashion designers, young fashion designers, fashion in media
