Kolovrat - ModaLisboa BOUNDLESS
With her latest collection for FW 2017/18, Lidija Kolovrat drew inspiration in South America, in particular the Andean culture.
Lidija Kolovrat was born in 1962 in Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina. She studied cinema and fashion at the Design and Technology College in Zagreb, Croatia. In 1990 she moved to Portugal where she is recognised as a prominent artist and regularly shows video art and installations in galleries and museums.
Her extensive body of work includes costume design for the theatre, opera and contemporary dance among other performing arts. In her interdisciplinary research work and involvement with design, Lidija opened Kolovrat Lab, an art space that was to operate for 15 years as a platform for het to develop her own work in fashion, which is presented by ModaLisboa during the Lisbon Fashion Week.
Lidija has also applied her skills to teaching, workshops and master degree programmes within the Lab and its wide range of activities.
In 2010, after a brief interval outside Portugal and the resulting closures of Kolovrat Lab, Lisbon saw her return and the start of Kolovrat 79. This multi-functional space where art and design can grow exponentially in an upstairs Lab and a street-level gallery.
