Serbian designer, Marija Šabić could be considered a queen of fashion. Her eyes for beauty and femininity are internationally recognised as she has been dressing the beauty queens of Serbian and Montenegro candidates for the Miss World, Miss Universe and Miss Europe competitions for numerous years.

An award-winning designer of evening dresses, gowns and bridal wear, Marija Šabić's passion and love for fashion drove her to understand the beauty of every woman, not only the top models but for women of every shape and size of every age and style. She has the eyes for design and can bring attention to the most outstanding part of the woman’s body while at the same time camouflaging the complexity required by some clients. She is capable to uplift the mood just by her designs. Marija Šabić is recognized not only for her fluid feminine dresses but also for the beautiful couture fabrics that she has accumulated from her numerous travels to Paris. Whatever the event whether it be a marriage or other function you can be sure that she will bring out the best in every woman that walks into her showroom.

She is humble and very likeable, we can feel straight away her sincerity and sensitivity. There is mutual trust and respect for her advice on what will look good on her customer. Each of her clients is treated with the utmost importance, while she listens attentively to understand the choice of dress and style the client is looking for, she will then advise the client on a style and look that will win the confidence of its wearer.

"Once my clients are in the clothes they love, their body confidence changes.” - said Marija Šabić.

We were so privileged to spend the day on our editorial photo shoot in Novi Sad during the Serbian fashion week where she presented her 2022 Couture Collection.

We discuss her attention to what the Serbian woman wants, her understanding of the process of fashion design, and the business aspect of it.
