Fashion designer Ksenija Vrbanic graduated fashion design at the TTF ( University of textile technology ) in Zagreb in 1984. Soon after the graduation, she managed to realize innovative ideas and in 1986 in her hometown Cakovec, she opened Studio for clothes design . At that time this was a pioneer approach to clothes design. The fashion brand XD XENIA DESIGN was founded.
Textile industry in the country was under influence of tailoring skills and textile wage labor work that barely allowed freedom in creativity and novelty. Being a promoter of innovative ideas, she brought novelties to that period’s boutique production by starting designing clothes based on personality.
