niOka is a creative label representing the Slovenian designer Nika Ravnik.
She finds inspiration in personal life, in odd things that catch her attention.
niOka means "green hills " in Aboriginal language. The name itself suggests that the ethos of the brand niOka is sustainably oriented, both, in designing by the "zero-waste" principle, as well as in the creation of "one-size-fits-all" clothing. In niOka's world the lead story revolves around the colours, textures and details, upgraded by the geometric forms. By amplifying and manipulating concrete details of some inspiration, her creations become an authentic language that sometimes needs translation first to understand what is the concept behind. Her design is defined as multifunctional minimalism, combining avant-garde simplicity with artistic craftsmanship, tender provocation and timelessness.

Nika Ravnik, Slovenian born, graduated in Fashion and Textile Design from the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering at the University of Ljubljana. She upgraded her education at Central Saint Martin’s school of Art and Design in London and at Designskolen Kolding in Denmark. Nika showcased her graduate collection at Copenhagen Fashion Week (2007) and has since been awarded by Goethe – Institut Ljubljana as a young talented designer (2009), selected to showcase at London Fashion Week as an Emerging and Independent Designer (2010), nominated for British Council‘s Young Creative Fashion Entrepreneur Award (2011), showcased at Fashionclash festival in Maastricht (2011).
