Praise Iliya, 28, is perhaps one of the most curious aspiring designers. A native of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Praise moved to Vienna with his parents as a child, where he also graduated from the Vienna University of Applied Arts under the patronage of Hussein Chalayan. Balkan roots, awareness of one's own identity, as well as life in the immigrant community are the main sources of inspiration for Elijah. Unsurprisingly, the Calvert Journal included him in an article on the top young designers in Eastern Europe.
Rethinking “beautiful” and “ugly”, expensive and cheap, is not a new topic for modern fashion, but the designer still finds a fresh perspective on the above. Although his clothes are worn and shown by girls, Ilya admits that for now he would like to develop primarily in the direction of men's fashion. It is worth following the Instagram of Praise, at least for the sake of periodic excursions into history - there he uploads, for example, photographs of his textured grandfather or classmates.
