Farrah Floyd makes collections for women, inspired by women. Trained as a both fashion and textile designer, and holding a master degree in Sustainability in Fashion, Bojana Draca is a designer with a recognizable style. In her work, she combines strong concepts with technical skills and sustainable design strategies. She has developed a special zero-waste cutting technique, using only rectangle pattern pieces. By challenging limits of fabrics and playing an endless game of shapes and colors, she transforms 2D forms into 3D. The new solutions that come up, combined with a powerful concept idea are the most significant features of her brand Farrah Floyd. With her master collection, named Heroine_collection, in 2012 Bojana won a bronze in Creative Conscience Award:UK and got into the semi finals for EcoChick Design Award in Hong Kong.

Fashion is a term associated with beauty, fame, glamorous lifestyle and money in general. It used to be accessible to individuals, but recently becoming affordable to almost anyone.

The trends are changing so fast, that not even the biggest enthusiasts can catch up. The production is getting bigger and faster, and at the same time the prices are getting lower and quality poorer.

How is this possible? What stands behind this phenomenon? How much do we know about origin of our clothes and should we start changing our habits for the sake other people, our planet or finally our own health?

The first step is to inform and educate consumers. The next would be to find ways to change their behaviors.

During Belgrade Design Week 2009, you enabled participants to meet with representatives from different countries, in professional, as well a sin social settings, which provided the opportunity for spontaneous interactions, where everyone was engaged in true cross-cultural dialogues. This allowed participants from different countries to become familiar with attitudes, ideas, and practices on the common topics of design.   We had received first hand accounts of current situation in creative fields and intellectual status of Belgrade Design Week, exchanged ideas and knowledge, mixed and mingled among each other. And the unique opportunity was given for all of us to establish professional relationships and develop lifelong friendships. We were eager to discover Belgrade and had a unique chance to enjoy the city! No doubt, it was our first, but not our last visit to Belgrade. All the best to Belgrade Design Week for the future to come! We are looking forward to be a part of your success
