Serbian runway honours shooting victim with Dior designs

Jelena Acimovic is not a model, but on Friday evening she walked the runaway at Belgrade Fashion Week in a dress designed by Dior (DIOR.PA) after drawings by her 14-year old sister who was killed in a school massacre last year.

Angelina Acimovic was in history class when her classmate, a 13-year old boy, entered the school and killed nine pupils and a guard in a shooting spree.

“This dress is white and resembles a wedding dress, she did not live long enough to see me as bride,” Jelena said before the show.

To commemorate Angelina’s life, her family last year called on designers to make dresses after her drawings made when she was 10 years old and attended a designers course for children.

Many Serbian designers responded and two dresses were made by Dior. Angelina’s two sisters, nine of her young friends and several professional models walked the runaway wearing dresses.

“In every drawing there was joy and beauty. She had a very serious approach,” said Bata Spasojevic, a Serbian designer who was among the first designers to respond to the Acimovic family’s call to revive their daughter’s sketches.


Angelina’s other sister, Marija, wore an elegant sleeveless pink dress with a train. Pink was Angelina’s favourite colour, she said.

“I am thinking about Angelina, that she is with us this evening and that she is happy with what we are doing,” Marija said.
Andjelko Acimovic, Angelina’s father, established a foundation named after his youngest daughter to commemorate her life.

“We believe that she is watching what we do and we will do everything to make her proud the way she made us proud,” Acimovic said.

Last year 18 people were killed in two shootings – one in elementary school and another one in a small town outside Belgrade – on May 3 and 4.

The two shootings shocked Serbia and triggered the biggest anti-government protests since the Serbian Progressive Party took power in 2012, prompting the government to call a snap election.

Ranbir Kapoor's film 'Ramayan' halted over copyright issue

 It has been rumoured that Ramayan has been halted.

The film stars Ranbir Kapoor as the lead character of Ram.

According to reports, allegations of copyright infringement have led to the pausing of the shooting schedule.

Producer Madhu Mantena was apparently part of the original production team.

Although he backed out of the film, Madhu has reportedly requested the crew to halt production until a few copyright issues are sorted.

A source stated: “Filming continued for a few days after the notice, but has been on hold since last week.

“The legalities need to be sorted out and filming will only resume after a consensus is reached on the matter.”

In May 2024, it was also reported that producers intended to increase security on the film’s set.

Ramayan is set to be directed by Nitesh Tiwari, and will also star Lara Dutta, Arun Govil, and Sunny Deol.

In April 2024, it was announced that Yash was signed as a co-producer for the ambitious project.
Delving into his involvement, he said: “As a third-generation filmmaker who has spent the last thirty years building a garage start-up into the world’s largest and most celebrated company in its field, I feel that all of my experience has been leading to this moment.

“Our interpretation will be told without compromise and presented in such a way that Indian hearts will swell with pride to see their culture brought to the rest of the world in this way.

“We are assembling the very best global talent – from our filmmakers, to our stars, to our crews, to our backers and investors – to tell this epic story with the care, attention, and conviction that it deserves.
