Sonja Marunic

is Belgrade based artist and fashion designer.

Sonja studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Arts(Belgrade), where she got her MFA in Arts/painting major/ in 2008. She was awarded  with the best student of the generation Award. She  exhibited her work in numerous exhibitions in her country and abroad. In 2011. she established her çlothing line SMLabel by Sonja Marunic.

 ’’Nikita Denmark’’ was Sonja’s first collection and it was a meeting point of her artistic background and her sense for fashion. She was guided by the idea of colluding two different segments of visual expression, making her art wearable. Further more, this collection was the begining of the Nikita Denmark art concept - a virtual contemporary female knight who stands as a protagonist of SMLabel.Since than she continued her work in the same direction, nourishing  the same aesthetics, having her clothes showcased in her country and also abroad.

Her interest is in solid construction, clear cuts, and juxtaposing the qualities of the sensual and delicate fabrics versus firm and constructive ones. Every choice of textile is carefully made. Giving the great importance to the craftsmanship and uniqueness of each piece, she is treating every segment of her clothing as a work of art.

Her clothes are made for contemporary women who are not afraid of being different  and noticed, women who are at the same time elegant and avantgarde, appreciating  the creative process behind the product.
