As the owners of a small family business working with textile products, inspired by the sensibility of the Mediterranean, we redirected our business to the establishment of a unique women's clothing brand. Thus, in 2011. on the Montenegrin coast, in Budva, on the Adriatic coast, the LAPPA fashion brand was born.
Immediately after that decision, the LAPPA atelier was founded – our oasis of peace and creativity, where the real magic of fashion expression is created through ideas, drawings, construction and precise work. Luxurious designs, unique prints, carefully selected materials of natural origin, a specific emphasis on detail and unique models, create a luxurious feeling that represents timeless chic.
LAPPA addresses all brave, curious girls and women determined to be true to 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. Women who see clothes as a reflection of their personality and a part of their body.
Biljana Stojanovski is the proud co-founder, creative director and mastermind of the LAPPA fashion brand.
She was born in Belgrade and is a proud carrier of the urban Belgrade spirit. Inspired by the Mediterranean and charmed by its beauty and spontaneity, she found her spiritual aperitif and creative satisfaction in Budva, on the coast of the Adriatic. The Mediterranean way of life brought her an idea for a new style of clothing, directly and expectedly, to her doorstep. Sunny days of the intense summer season, the intoxication of colors of untouched nature, and the patina of the Budva Old Town were reasons for Biljana's first creation to emerge.
Her broad knowledge, combined with sewing and tailoring skills, creativity, persistence, and an unmatched need for successful creative expression, led to the creation of the first long and flowing summer dress. The design and pattern of this dress turned Biljana's ambition into a successful business venture and defined the basis for all future fashion creations of the LAPPA brand.
The thistle flower, better known as "LAPPA" in Latin, is more than just an emblem for us. It embodies the connection between our clothing and the remarkable women who wear it. Like the thistle's intricate interlocking hooks that attach to clothing, our pieces are designed to blend in style and gently integrate into the modern woman's life
We draw daily inspiration from a woman who nurtures naturalness, awakens emotions, evokes memories and radiates positive energy. For those who live freedom and love life with dignity, every LAPPA dress is an invitation to a story, in which you play the main role.
