Handcrafted with Love
War & Drobe garments are proudly handcrafted in London by founder and creator of the label Nina Kovacevic. As a child Nina came to London fleeing the war from former Yugoslavia. It was during this time that her mother taught her the power of fashion and the strength it can bring. The label was named and born out of a love for empowering women through fashion and allowing them to feel fierce and feminine in their day to day lives.
Having studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, Nina went on to develop her skills training under a tailor, couturier and working in a lingerie studio. She collates her past experiences, technical knowledge and creative background to bring to life collections with a purpose. By slowing down the making process and never mass producing clothing, War & Drobe celebrates and preserves traditional artisanal sewing techniques. Crafting clothing consciously is at the heart of the label, starting with a simple sketch that’s lovingly and laboriously developed by one person alone.
As a sustainable fashion label War & Drobe always looks at the full life cycle of a garment and what impact it leaves. Fabrics are carefully selected from local suppliers as well as high end designer surplus materials from Italy and organic cottons from farther afield. Even the swing tags are printed onto recycled card and all other packaging is either recyclable or biodegradable. Time is taken to create garments with a meaningful purpose as well as a striking style and exceptional fit. Find your perfect match in a collection that’s designed with you in mind and enjoy wearing a timeless garment that you will cherish for years to come.
