Alan Hranitelj was my first favorite designer when I was a child. When he's not working for Cirque du Soleil or on other projects in exciting places like China and New York, you often see him around Ljubljana, always impeccably dressed and radiating an aura of genius. That's just what it's like with some people! Every time I see him I feel starstruck, although we've never established eye contact, let alone talked (*gasp*).
I found this interview by accident in a book titled Fashion Statements last summer. It was originally published in Virus Mutations magazine, no. 6, March 1999, in Italy. It seems to me that he talks about his work much less vaguely than usually in this interview. Maybe it's a matter of language?
