Risto Bimbiloski modeled by Roxane Danset
At age thirteen, Macedonian born designer Risto Bimbiloski, ventured to Prague to see some of the best planetariums in Europe; the experience has manifested in his Summer 2009 collection, a homage to the galaxies and to the year 2009- the International Year of Astronomy.
Despite the celestial influences, his trademark knit appliqués on poplin, tromp l’oeil effects, and technical cuts, are overwhelmingly down to earth.
In 2006 Risto’s talent piqued the interest of Louis Vuitton marking the start of their ongoing collaboration, with Risto consulting for their knitwear.
His designs can be found at Opening Ceremony and Barney’s New York
