Roksanda Ilincic to speak about running a fashion business at Dezeen Day

Fashion designer Roksanda Ilincic will discuss how she started her Roksanda womenswear label at Dezeen Day on 30 October.

The Serbian designer will be part of a panel discussion about entrepreneurialism. The designer, who lives in London, received a masters degree in womenswear from London's Central Saint Martins.

She launched her fashion label Roksanda in 2005, when she showed her first collection of 11 cocktail dresses with dramatic silhouettes at London Fashion Week.

She has since expanded the luxury brand to include ready-to-wear fashion, swimwear, childrenswear and accessories, with a boutique in London's Mayfair.

Ilincic gained global recognition through her bold use of colour and geometric patterns in her womenswear designs, which have been worn by celebrities including Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.

She has also applied her signature style to interiors, designing a colourful penthouse apartment in King's Cross earlier this year.

At Dezeen Day, Ilincic will discuss how she has grown her successful London-based business over the past 14 years in a debate that will explore how architects and designers can profit more from their own creativity.

Ilincic will talk about how to run a successful design business with fellow panelists industrial designer Benjamin Hubert and architect Dara Huang.

Dezeen Day, our first ever architecture, interiors and design conference, will take place at the BFI Southbank in London on 30 October. It will focus on key topics including the circular economy, future cities and transforming design education.
