Roksanda Ilincic has grown in confidence throughout 2013.
The designer is known for her gorgeous dresses, which have been spotted on celebrities such as Carey Mulligan and Rachel McAdams.
This year she even picked up an award for her designs, which has pushed her to work even harder.
“Yes, 2013 has defied any unlucky connotations and has been one of the best years of my career!” she gushed to elleuk.com.
“It all really started for me at the ELLE Style Awards back in February when I won Best Red Carpet Designer. After receiving the award, I knew that people understood my designs and I grew in confidence. It’s encouraged me to be brave and go in new directions – like my new laser cut pieces.”
Now the year is coming to an end, Roksanda is thinking about taking a well-deserved break.
The fashion star revealed where she would be spending Christmas.
“I will be in a very remote cabin in Laax in Switzerland, skiing with my family. My three-year-old daughter Efimia is a brilliant little skier. I’m looking forward to getting out on the slopes with her and my husband Philip,” she smiled.
It might seem like the designer has everything she could ask for, but there’s one little thing high up on her festive wish list.
“Well. I have had my eye on this beautiful vintage Hermès handbag all year but between the store opening and everything else that’s been happening I’ve not had a chance to go and buy it myself. Maybe [Philip will] read this and will get my very subtle hint!” she winked.
