Barbara Franjić, the founder of Patricia Pie, has been passionate about fashion and design from a young age, which she clearly expressed as a child, weaving the canvases of her creative potential Her passion for art and craft only grew over the years, especially after completing secondary textile school, where she gained a thorough understanding of textiles and design. This deepened knowledge further fueled her dedication to creating fashion that is both beautiful and sustainably made. By continuing her studies and earning a degree in textile design and modeling, Barbara gained an even deeper insight into clothing design, from material selection to the perfection of patterns. This educational advancement allowed her to refine her approach to creating garments that not only look beautiful but also embody the principles of sustainability and craftsmanship that Patricia Pie stands for.

Throughout her career, Barbara gained experience in leadership positions at major textile companies and later, together with a friend, founded her first fashion brand. Although the partnership did not last, Barbara, despite great uncertainty and a lack of entrepreneurial knowledge, persisted and later independently leads the brand Patricia Pie Her collections reflect Barbara’s aesthetic, which combines the timeless silhouettes of the fifties and sixties with modern romance and eco-conscious approaches. She is known for her innovation, attention to the smallest details, and courage in pushing the boundaries of sustainable and ethical fashion, never yielding to conformity.

In the past, one of the obstacles to the brand’s growth was that Barbara did not have sufficient sewing capacity, In August 2023, she established her own studio, where she now leads a small team of experienced artisans By doing this, Barbara has fulfilled her long-standing wish and is extremely grateful to have a team that is always available and ready to help. Together with the seamstress and tailor, she can design even more complex and refined models, thus realizing her design talent even faster.

With new creative energies and production capabilities, Patricia Pie enters an exciting new chapter. The atelier enables the creation of unique Perfect Fit garments, tailored to the individual measurements of each client and designed exclusively for her The atelier is also opening up opportunities for young designers by offering tailored production services – Barbara is paying it forward, providing the support she once missed, in the development of designs and the production of their first small series
