-Roberta Einer-

Design patterns have been predominantly my new focus for the last month, and it is always refreshing finding designers that inspire me to keep pushing art to be the best it can be. This past week I found a piece that really spoke to me. I have to say I am not a fan of wearing embroidery, but when I see something that blows my mind, I have to brag about it :) One of Roberta Einer's pieces popped up on my Pinterest feed and for some reason it spiked my curiosity to dig even further. As a result, I felt in love with her style. Her pieces are ambitious and it would be an understatement to say impressive. She just graduated from Westminster University in 2015, and she already has experience working with brands such as Balmain, Roksanda Illincic, Alexander McQueen & Mary Katrantzou! Roberta is originally from Estonia, but moved to England to study fashion design; surprisingly enough, even before she graduated, she landed a job at Balmain in Paris, right before her first debut at the London Fashion Week with her spring collection. According to Roberta, her "aesthetic was minimal and monochrome," but Balmain gave her the courage to really go for it. The results: a GENIUS collection inspired by traditional Slavic embroidery, weave, knit techniques, and Soviet poster graphics; also, at a later stage, influenced by USA's and Soviet's teen culture. I really enjoy her color palette, it is mainly soft colors but, on the contrary, it showcases boldness and fun! Hope you find her work as awesome as I think it is! :)
