The Bosnian-born, Vienna based fashion designer Hvala Ilija studied design at Schloss Hetzendorf under the creative direction of Fabrics Inter_seasons, and later Ute Ploier. Currently enrolled at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna under the tutelage of Hussein Chalayan, Hvala is an outstanding representation of the street culture and the way it can translate into fashion. His sportswear vibe makes for urban and uber-cool pieces, echoing the current scene in London or Berlin.
Hvala Ilija is showing as part of the International Fashion Showcase 2017, to find out more, click here.
