The fashion show FASHION THEATRE *** is set to take place in the western Croatian town of Opatija on 24 July.

She also presented at the “Young Creative Chevrolet” and “Dreft Next Generation” competitions and on the “Lijepa nasa Sava” project. Buzov is the designer and illustrator for the fashion brand “Aurpegia”. Her collection is inspired by the floral ornamentation of Art Nouveau architecture, visible on her actual designs, and also the form of creation finds its source from the Art Nouveau style of paintings. A woman wearing it is at the same time bold, elegant and gentle, cocooned beneath an armor of sophistication.
ANNA LICINA (Montenegro) – Anna was born in Ruanda before moving to Belgium at the age of 7 and then later to Serbia. She studied fashion at ”L’institut superieur des arts appliques” in Paris. After gaining experience as a stylist at “pret a porter” and as an independent designer, she moved to Montenegro.

DANKA KAROVIC (Serbia) – Danka graduated from art school for design textiles and clothing, as well as high school for textile design, technology and management.

Besides participating at the Belgrade Fashion Week three times, she has taken part at the Belgrade Art Week and at various humanitarian fashion shows, at shows as part of PR days, and was twice a guest designer at a blogging competition show. She also presented models as part of the Miss Net Auto. “My design is unique, based on constant research of the form. Travelling through different styles can be seen, because that is a special challenge for me. I do not like monotony, which makes it difficult to give each collection something new and different. I create for people who stand out from the crowd for their attitude and awareness that they themselves are unique. ” says Danka.
Slavica Nogulovic, Montenegro’s representative for Miss Tourism International will be a special guest at the event. Snjezana Tuhtan & Salon Aniks will be in charge of hairstyles on the night, whilst the make up will be done by professional makeup artist Leana Garcev & Studio Calebi.
