Tenth fashion designer of the 2018 season
Another month with our amazing BB Design Year project has started! This time we had the pleasure to welcome Ana Brozović and Tomislav Brozović and their brands BAGGIZ and KOMAD. Ana and Tomislav spent a week at our BIG BERRY Kolpa River Resort designing both amazing clothing and accessories for BIG BERRY.
When staying at BIG BERRY, it is important to get an authentic experience and become part of the story. During the week, Ana and Tomislav got the full BIG BERRY experience: introduction to the resort, to the BIG BERRY brand and the BB Design Year project, staying in a BB House, swimming in the Kolpa river and spending evenings together at the BBQ House and the BB Rooftop terrace!
To welcome them in the resort, we took Ana and Tomislav around and had a Mural walk presenting the gorgeous BB Art Colony houses. Then they learned all about the brand elements and our design projects to prepare them for their creative week! During their stay, they also got to know some of our BIG BERRY partners: we enjoyed local food for lunch at Gostilna Müller and Gostišče Veselič to experience the tastes of Bela krajina! Ana and Tomislav enjoyed our partner’s products also on the rooftop terrace drinking a glass of the best Šuklje wine, and during their breakfast, where they enjoyed Kmetija Totter’s delicious cheese.
Ana and Tomislav spent their mornings at the terrace enjoying their breakfast basket while creating their amazing designs for new BIG BERRY elements. As BAGGIZ Ana designed a BB Bag made of linen with a bottom part made of cork, that can be used in various occasions. The same design and materials can be used for other accessories such as toilet bags, slippers or an apron. As KOMAD, she designed a new BB outfit that is in harmony with the natural surroundings and the BB identity. The outfit is comfortable, made of natural materials and has connection to the brand’s visual identity with its colors and the BIG BERRY logo.
Apart from creative working time, we spent time all together relaxing and taking care of ourselves. We swam in the warm Kolpa river and did yoga in the shadows of the beautiful old oaks at the end of the resort. Being surrounded by this amazing Slovenian nature offers the best opportunities to relax your mind and to find inspiration. It is the perfect place for creativity to blossom!
