Roberta is a new fashion designer who is currently studying in London but even before graduation, her debut collection is creating waves all over the world. Her style is somewhat of a patchwork in the most amazing sense of the word - the pieces feature fur, pearls and other beautiful materials stitched together into a hyper, cool, bohemian, punk, barbie vibe. She definitely has a very bright future ahead.
The only accessories/ jewelry designer on my list, Tanel's work is straight out of a fairytale. He often lists "cosmic dust" as one of the materials used in his work, mixing it with magical items like metallic seahorses and semi-precious stones. I admire Tanel's work so much because he manages to have an incredible career as a fine artist, showing his more outrageous pieces in numerous galleries all over the world, while also designing simple and beautiful collections for the women who like more understated stuff.
I am starting to appreciate minimalist design more and more as time goes by and Jo has really mastered simplicity. Great materials with interesting details. I would say she is Estonia's own Rick Owens and I'm very excited to watch her journey as an artist.
