Is an award winning Austrian Fashion Accessory Designer and Artist. She creates timeless designs, which always have a little twist to them. She was selected as a finalist for ITS 2020 with her collection “AETERNUM”
Heirloom pieces, crafted to the highest ethical standards, reflecting heritage and culture with the use of digital technology and traditional craftsmanship. Mourning artifacts that tell about our legacy for this world, jewellery pieces to be handed down to the generations, long after we are gone. Ninja aspires to create a sustainable future, respecting our planet and, in her opinion, fashion is powerful as a tool to educate, to create a positive impact, to empower and to heal. Something to hold on times of sorrow and to give hope for a better tomorrow, especially in times like those we are living in. AETERNUM is a mourning jewellery collection made for her loved ones. Each piece becomes a part of a family history, a rite of passage from mother to daughter, from aunt to niece. A handkerchief, a dress or a jewel turns into a symbol of the family, of one’s roots. They represent a woman telling her own story and that of the people who shaped and gave meaning to her world, in her own unique voice.
International Talent Support was launched in 2002 and throughout its history it has developed into the most highly recognized platform to showcase & support the strongest young talents on the planet. Most importantly, it created an ever-growing family supporting creativity, like branches on a tree growing in different directions, yet nurtured by the same roots. It has built an impressive Creative Archive, a unique collection tracing the history of fashion evolution. Many of the over 630 finalists were selected by top fashion brands where they now hold key positions, or have successfully developed their own lines.
