We are getting closer to the 2nd of June, and I still cannot believe that I will attend for the first time the most important European AIDS-charity event of the year, the Life Ball. Moreover why this makes me even more excited is, because I will present L’OR as “taste ambassador” and will wear a gorgeous tailored gown by Eva Poleschinski. L’OR started this exclusive design cooperation just for this year’s Life Ball.
When L’OR told me that Eva Poleschinski will be the designer of my gown, I couldn’t be any happier. I know Eva since more than five years, when I used to work as stylist for editorials.

Numerous international presentations, such as in Berlin, New York, Paris, Tokyo and at Zagreb Fashion Week. She has an exceptional sense for different fabrics, unique individuality in every design and the extra touch for glamorous gowns. Just like L’OR as a premium coffee brand that stands for quality and elegance, my gown will be exactly the same, following the brand colors in black and gold.
When I received the first design draft for the gown, I already fell in love with the design and I could imagine how glamorous and unique the dress will be. We arranged the first meeting at Eva Poleschinski’s atelier to take measurements and talk about the style and materials that were used for the dress. Eva Poleschinski used five different fabrics, six different laces, Swarovski crystals, pearls and stones. Now just two weeks later the gown is almost finished and last Wednesday, I had the first fitting of the dress. It already fits perfectly and I felt just like an Opera singer at Grand–
