For this series of Spotlight Interviews we’ll be checking in with the artisans and designers who will be taking part in our Merry & Bright pop-up shop at Palazzo San Niccolò on December 9-10!
Today we’re hearing from Tijana Stankovic about her fashion label Tiche Clothing and what inspires her to keep creating.
What makes Florence the right place for your brand?
I love art, design, artisans, architecture, nature, I love people and I love eating. Florence is a melting point and inspiration comes from everything, even if you don’t recognize it at the time.
At CPiF we celebrate collaboration between creatives. Are you working on any collaborative
projects at the moment, or are you looking for people to work with in the future?
I love working with people that share my sense of passion. Other people push you in different direction and you evolve. I would love to collaborate with visual artists, film makers, art photographers — people free from commercial constraints of fashion.
Who are your favorite local designers and/or artisans that everyone should know about?
I come from an art background, so I follow more artists then designers. Artists in Tuscany — Margherita Moscardini, Chiara Camoni, Francesco Carone.
Any holiday gifts you’re particularly pining for this year?
A ticket for a long weekend in nature or an other city would be a perfect gift.
