All eyes on Croatia

Rebecca Heald reports on the latest excitement to emerge from 
Europe's eastern playground

LONDON, New York, Paris, Milan, Zagreb: the latter might not yet be 
on the fashion map but that is all set to change thanks to design 
trio I-GLE's first independent catwalk show on May 7.

I-GLE: catch them if you can. Picture: Ivana Vucic

'I-GLE', Croatian for both 'sewing needle' and 'Hey, look!', was 
established by Martina Vrdoljak Ranilovic in 1998 with Romano Decker 
and Natasa Mihaljcisin joining in consequent years. Together they 
have revolutionised the Croatian fashion industry attracting a 
cult-like following of fashionistas and socialites the world over.

Taking shape: the collection hanging in I-GLE's Zagrebboutique

Citing 'the unexpected' as their main inspiration, their designs are 
characterised by stray threads, complex layering, unusual colour 
combinations and themes of disintegration and deconstruction. 
Wildly anticipated in Croatia and beyond, I-GLE is following the 
recent examples of Dolce & Gabbana, Julien Macdonald and other 
enlightened designers by broadcasting the show across the globe via 
a live webcast.  Log on to www.i-gle.com at 20:00 GMT (21:00CET)
to witness a show that promises to set new standards for both couture and the catwalk.
