Fashion Week has been around in some form or another for 70 years, and to outsiders might look like the most fabulous party on earth. But are we are getting a little tired of the time and energy demanded twice a year with little change in format? Our expert panel discusses whether or not this 70 year old concept needs reinventing in order to stay relevant.
Pejić was born in Tuzla, Yugoslavia (now part of Bosnia and Herzegovina) and has one older brother, Igor. Her mother, Jadranka Savić, is a Bosnian Serb, and her father, Vlado Pejić, is a Bosnian Croat. The couple divorced shortly after Pejić's birth. During the Bosnian War, Pejić and Igor fled to Serbia with their mother and grandmother, settling in a refugee camp near Belgrade. After the refugee camp, the family settled in the Vojska village near Svilajnac.
Following the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, Pejić's mother felt unsafe and decided to initiate the process of emigration to Australia. In 2000, the family moved to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia as political refugees when Pejić was eight years old.
While attending high school at University High, Pejić was described as being "academically brilliant".
