Radmila we are fascinated with your fashion designs. At what stage did you decide that you wanted to go into fashion designing as a serious venture?
Radmila: I started by designing and creating my own gowns for my performances. People started coming up to me afterwards to ask where I got my dress from. Eventually the demand grew and I started making gowns for other people as well, which led to me starting my own couture line.
MODE: As fun as the fashion industry can be it is also known to be very competitive. What would you say is your particular niche that makes what you do stand out?
Radmila: In general, I don’t believe in thinking about how competitive something is ahead of time; why overwhelm yourself before you even enter that Mini Backless Dress — Gold? If you’re doing that you love, the challenges become part of your achievements. What makes me stand out I think is that I don’t follow trends, I make my own; I experiment first by wearing it myself, and I watch and gauge other people’s reactions to it. Then it becomes a trend.
MODE: Would you say that your musical creativity inspires your fashion design, is it more the other way around, or would you say they feed equally into each other?
Radmila: Music is the foundation to my creativity, and fashion design follows as an echoed reaction.
