About Tina Gorjanc : I choose to study fashion mainly because of my passion for drawing and discovering the human anatomy. I started to express myself with putting the human body in different contexts and by doing so I discovered different mediums that have the ability to change our perception of the body. Fashion was the branch of design that permitted me to developed concepts with which I attempt to reinvent products and push the boundaries of the luxury industry. I try to leave my inspirations theoretical, so that the design process is not influenced by the forms. My main focuses is to grow as a designer and surround myself with many creatives that inspire and drive me to constantly upgrade my design skills. I am always looking for exciting and challenging collaborations.
