About Me

Ralitsa is a final year bachelor student from NBU.

Devoted to unique and alternative appearance, Ralitsa dedicated her collection concept to the development of distinctive handcrafted appearance in the collection 'Postamorphia'.

Ever since Ralitsa expressed interest in the field of Fashion she became rather provoked to discover and experience fashion and art in general. Art became an integral part of her life when she started her education at the Sofia High School of Applied Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria where she graduated Textile Development. The knowledge she acquired there developed her aesthetic and refined her absence of limitation. 'Postamorphia' is the fruitful result of her effort to accomplish different feel and method in functional garments and concept creations.

INSPIRATION

A collection themed ‘The personification of the Bulgarian Secession – Ivan Milev’

The inspiration behind the concept is directly related to the work of Ivan Milev - the artist who created a new point of reference in Bulgarian art history. He was familiar with Japanese art, Viennese Art Nouveau, Russian artists, and even Expressionism. Many elements of different styles can be found in the same photo of him.

Inspired by the Vienna Secession, his compositions are brought to life by a mix of decorative and folklore elements, symbolism, and last but not least the mosaic structure - influenced by ancient Byzantine mosaics, which due to their Baroque like splendor and oriental charm captivate the world-renown artist - Gustav Klimt. This is the reason why the predominant colors in the collection are bronze and green-gold.

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

A mixture between technical and experimental implementation

In each of the six outfits, there is a symbiosis between functionality and concept creations. The material of which is made the collection is lightweight, durable, breathable and yet resistant to water synthetic paper. Some of the parts are painted completely with bronze spray and the others – with green-gold colour. On some paper garments, there is green-gold paint only on the most convex parts to emphasize the relief structure. Regular shoes are turned into conceptional ones. That happened with the help of the creation of a synthetic paper pattern, which was heated after that.
