Karaka design is a fashion brand established in 2002 signed by Vesna Karuza and Senija Radić. Under this name they have participated in numerous fashion shows (Zagreb Fashion Week, Zlatna igla, Prague Fashion Week, MQ Vienna Fashion Week) and section and group exhibitions at ULUPUH – The Croatian Association of Applied Arts Artists.
They received numerous designers’ awards such as Mandica 2002 - for the best young designer, Manda 2003 - for the best collection, FWZ etc.
In making garments special attention is dedicated to volume and form relationship and construction interventions aimed at emphasising the sculptural effect. Only natural fabrics are used – wool, cotton, silk, linen and natural mixtures whose texture suits their authors’ sensibility. Fabrics are sometimes enriched with print or hand application of textile colour. The accent lies in originality and uniqueness. Karaka design products are mostly aimed at women clients: from dresses, skirts, vests, tunics to caps, coats, scarfs and similar accessories.
Their approach to design and construction is sincere and uncompromising and special effort is invested to, in times of “rampant consumerism”, offer design enthusiasts products of high aesthetic and functional value.
