Fashion designers Karaka design (Vesna Karuza and Senija Radić) and product designer Ada Kezić have combined their knowledge in designing unique objects for sitting, and perhaps also for playing. Ada Kezić's furniture is characterized by minimalism, the bearer of her expression are refined geometric shapes made of carefully selected materials, perfectly finished. Senija Radić's and Vesna Karuza's clothes are emphatically sculptural, shaped by tailoring into organic volumes that wrap around the body or go out into space. "Fashion construction" presents dialogue of their different expressions and media, and connects product and fashion design.

Senija and Vesna approached upholstery as clothing and enriched it with 3D shapes, pleats created by folding, folding and layering textiles, and those that protrude more prominently into the space in the form of various spikes and conical,cone-shaped forms.

Upholstery was made for Pilates balls, which often roll around our living spaces against our will.Filled with air, light and mischievous, they gave the authors the opportunity to indulge in true sculptural design in textiles, unencumbered by functional requirements.They disguised them as different creatures with wings and spikes which nevertheless, at the slightest turn, lay down, revealing their delicate nature, which is made of textiles.The textile envelops them, gathers, follows their shape and creates small "Fashion construction" of 3 elements: "Morus", "Spike" and "Spira".
