Meet Rasa Balciunaite

If you could style one iconic fashion piece, what are you choosing?

It's impossible to pick just one item! Definitely something from Gianni Versace's 90s collections, such as the Bondage dress or the Sea Shell dress. Absolutely iconic!

I do also love Mugler and the current direction they're taking. I would happily style the majority of their current pieces, as well as the unforgettable work of Thierry Mugler in the 90s.

What designers would you love to work with?

I would love to collaborate with Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Pansczczyk, the designers behind AREA. Their work is incredibly inspiring and represents my aesthetic. I love how they combine glam and street style with a twist of playfulness and pop.

Another brand would be Gucci, of course. I love how Alessandro Michelle combines unexpected pieces together. He creates a sort of a messy, yet cohesive look. It's an art.

What celebrity would you love to work with?

If I had a chance, Rihanna. To be honest, I think I would learn more from her! She's my fashion icon and I think together we would create some true statement looks for her. I love how she's taking risks and mixing styles, yet still keeping her own flair. I think she'd be a dream to work with!

How do you want to be remembered within the industry?

I want to be remembered as an image architect, like Law Roach. I'd like to be recognised as a trendsetter with a true passion. I pride myself on elevating people's styles and defining their aesthetics. I hope that is remembered.

We asked Rasa to share her 'bucket list concept'—the creative vision that she hopes to one day bring to life...

Secret Shore

I'm planning a concept shot by the beach—it's a location that I haven't shot at before but would absolutely love to. There's just something wonderful about being by the sea, especially when the weather is right and the golden hour is present. I can't give out too many details on this idea, so just a teaser...seductive, mysterious, glamorous, one-with-nature, free.

As for the rest, well, you'll have to wait and see!
