My first article in 2017 is all about fashion. Last year I got an opportunity to collaborate with amazingly talented people and one of them is Kristina Fazinić, the women who stands behind Bags by Kristina.
Uniqueness, simplicity and quality are the main characteristics of her bags. Special detail on each bag is a photography of Korčula, Croatian island which I visited last summer with my Go Dubrovnik team. I was so curious about what inspires her the most and how she got an idea to make the bags and also where you can find her unique bags.
„This idea of making bags didn’t come yesterday. Through years I made some amazing photos of my hometown Korčula and since I was always searching for a perfect souvenir, the one that’s unique and special, I decided to bring together my love for photography and fashion.“, said Kristina.
„Korčula has so many picturesque villages and I just want to save their beauty in photos. I just don’t want them to be forgotten. They are one of my favourite sources of inspiration.“
„I got an idea to make ‘the traveling artshow’ of my island. Each photo is unique, different and gives a bag special aesthetic impression and that’s why you can find my bags in many Croatian magazines among ‘the must have’ models of the year.“
„It’s been four years since my first bag went live and when I look back I’m so proud and overjoyed of what I’ve done.“
You can find Bags by Kristina at her Facebook page Bags by Kristina, at her gallery in Korčula and soon in her webshop. Bags found their place in Dubrovnik as well. You can check them out at the airport.
Many Croatian celebrities choose Bags by Kristina. Some of them are Iva Šulentić, Tihana Harapin, Marijana Batinić, Olja Vori, AnaCroatian Miščević etc. I don’t even have to tell you that I’m in love with my red leather bag. Hope that you will find one for yourself.
