Fashion designer Roksanda Illincic has officially made a name for herself, as many awaited her collection during London Fashion Week yesterday, and viewers loved what they saw, according to the Associated Press.
Illincic has had many well-known clients over the years including first lady Michelle Obama, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, Emily Blunt and Gwenyth Paltrow.
“It’s no surprise she is attracting big name clients,” Avril Graham, Harper’s Bazaar executive fashion and beauty editor, told the news source. “Roksanda is one of my own personal favorites on the London design scene. Her understanding of real women and silhouettes designed to flatter is perhaps the key to her success. Her collections are packed with must-have, tasteful numbers.”
This is the fourth year that Illincic has contributed to London Fashion Week, but this is the first year that she was not labeled an “up-in-coming” designer, rather one that has already made it in the industry, the media outlet reports.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, fashion designers can make around $61,000, which was the annual median salary in 2008
