Marija Mandic about Art & Fashion:
"Everyone is an artist in a very unique way. The way we live, breathe, talk, how we feel, walk and express ourselves physically and mentally is a form of art. Outer uniqueness comes from inside. There are no definitions about the "one thing" and how it works, because it is individual expression. There are 'tools’ such as fashion or art, which allow us to perfectly embody our invisible worlds, our dreams and the beautiful own rituals of how to wear them."
