In her graduate collection The Invisible Path, Ana Krgović talks about the clash of cultures as a result of migration flows between the African and European continents. Motifs taken from African clothing culture incorporated into the fashion of Western European urban culture are alternated in six clothing combinations with intense colored textile patterns. The designer, inspired by traditional zero-waste African clothing, applies the same technique while designing and making some items of clothing in the collection.

With the use of waterproof textiles and a symbolic circle associated with the concept of constant movement and the metaphor of a lifebelt, The Invisible Path collection becomes an appeal for rescue on the deadliest migration route in the Mediterranean Sea. All prints in the collection were created using eco-friendly colors that are based on water and biodegradable inks, printed on big ink-jet printers. The technology used is efficient and enables waste-free printing.
