Tina grew up in a rural village in Slovenia near the craft of men's tailoring. Early on, such a way of making inspired her passion for designing and creating clothing inspired by the human form.
Her MA collection was a tribute to her upbringing with tailoring classics such as a black woolen suit, a white shirt, denim trousers, and the like, re-designed according to her first memories of them. In addition, she wrote an academic thesis about the importance of classics in fashion, their phenomenon, and the relevance of their designer adaptations.
She gathered relevant working experience through Womenswear Design Internships at GIVENCHY (2019) and KENZO (2018). There she acquired a comprehensive knowledge of the processes of designing a ready-to-wear womenswear collection and contributed with her know-how of creative pattern cutting and 3D clothing research.
Currently, she is a designer in a start-up dancewear brand "Just a Corpse" (2020), and a guest lecturer of "Experimental Pattern Cutting" at the EKA Estonian Academy of Arts (2020).
