About the brand
As the owners of a family business in the trade of textile products, inspired by the sensibility of the Mediterranean, we redirected our business to the establishment of a unique fashion brand. Thus, in 2011, the fashion brand LAPPA was created on the Montenegrin coast, in Budva near the Adriatic.
Immediately after that decision, the LAPPA studio was founded – our oasis of peace and creativity, where the idea, drawing, construction, and precise workmanship create the true magic of fashion expression. Luxurious designs, unique prints, carefully selected materials of natural origin, a specific emphasis on making details, and unique models, create a luxurious feeling, which at the same time represents timeless chic.
LAPPA addresses all brave, curious girls and women determined to be consistent with themselves and celebrate the beauty of life. Every moment of the effort is dedicated to the women we love, who are optimistic and harmonious and who feel glamorous and free at all times. To women who perceive clothes as a reflection of their personality and part of their body.
Biljana Stojanovski is a proud co-founder, creative director, and inventor of the fashion brand LAPPA.
She was born in Belgrade, and she is a proud bearer of the urban Belgrade spirit. Inspired by the Mediterranean and charmed by its beauty and immediacy, she found her spiritual aperitif and creative satisfaction in Budva, on the Adriatic coast. The Mediterranean way of life brought the idea of a new dressing style to her doorstep. The sunny days of the intense summer season, the intoxication with the colors of untouched nature, and Budva’s Old Town’s patina were sufficient reasons for Biljana’s first creation. Her extensive knowledge, upgraded with the skill of sewing and tailoring, creativity, perseverance, and the unsurpassed need for a successful creative expression, created the first, long, and fluttering summer dress. The model and cut of this dress turned Biljana’s ambition into a successful business venture and defined the basis of all fashion creations of the Lappa brand.
The burdock flower, better known in Latin as “LAPPA,” is a synergy of the harmony of nature and diversity of the Mediterranean. The magnificent crown of the flower and intense purple color symbolically depict the authenticity and perseverance of the brand.
We draw our daily inspiration from a woman who nurtures naturalness, awakens emotions, evokes memories, and radiates positive energy. For those who live freely and love life, every LAPPA dress is an invitation to a story in which you have the leading role.
