E.D.: Which Designer, artist / architect do you admire most?

L.S.: Balenciaga, Galliano and Chanel. I think it’s hard to not admire them. Hopefully I would love create my own trade in the future.

E.D.: What are currently your favorite brands or objects, and why?

L.S.: My current crush is the brand Rodarte – of Kate and Laura Mulleavy -! I looooooove their dresses and their story is so inspiring!

E.D.: Which city resembles you the most and why?

L.S.: Paris. I feel at home in Paris. That’s very strange and something very powerful for me, since I lost my hometown when my family had to flee from Bosnia during the Balkan war in 1992. I learned a lot about elegance from the French women.

E.D.: Your dream project?

L.S.: My biggest dream is to make a living on this, and I would love to show my collection during New York Fashion Week in Bryant Park.

E.D.: What is your favourite example of the use of sustainable fabrics/products in Fashion Design?

L.S.: I love the fact that H&M is going to present their eco collection in March. My thoughts goes like: if a huge company like that can make an effort then surely the smaller brands like mine will follow...

E.D.: What design/clothes project would you never design and why?

L.S.: I’m not a fan of t-shirts...

E.D.: Can you describe an evolution in your work from your first projects to the present day?

L.S.: I started my first company when I was just 17. But I knew how to knit and crochet when I was 11 years old. I worked with my previous label for three seasons until I decided to move on. I specialized myself in pattern design and tailoring dresses in Stockholm. I have recently shown my first solo collection under my own brand Lamija Suljevic. I’m currently preparing for the Scope Art Show in New York.
