Born in Kumanovo, Macedonia, Sekirarki`s interests in dressmaking started at the very young age. He spent much of his time in developing skills from patterns to variety of handcrafts. He also explored and improved his observation and technical skills which helped him to implement them in sketches and patterns.
In 1993, as a student at the University of Belgrade, Serbia, he presented his first collection and held the first fashion show that determined his path as a fashion designer for ladies.
He began designing luxurious evening gowns and exquisite wedding dresses with a powerful and unique vision. As a never-ending inspiration his woman in modern and strong, but at the same time dreamlike and elegant. Over the years, his gowns were worn by remarkable ladies from the Macedonian public and cultural life that makes a recognizable mark of what might be considered Macedonian fashion.
After the period of designing for various fashion houses and brands, Sekirarski founded his own Atelier Sekirarski in 2002 in Skopje, Macedonia, which is his base ever since. He creates his collections considering the needs of the clients in Macedonia and the region, but also using the creativity and originality to make personal influence. Also, he and his team make made-to-fit garments for individual clients that give the individual and personal touch by the designer to every single piece coming out from the atelier.
Sekirarski`s collections, one after other, are glamorous and sophisticated. He has a sense of fusing the inheritance in generations of Macedonian ornamental decorations with the elements that are modern, practical and cosmopolite. He experiments with cut-to-curve silhouette making in soft and liquid and emphasizing the line with hand embroidery, breading and other techniques. The use of natural fabrics makes the final statement of the garments and brings the refine quality.
His collections were presented in numerous fashion shows, fashion weeks and events in Macedonia and in many countries like Romania, Serbia, Albania and Italy, but he also took part in events in the United Kingdom and the USA. He collaborates with various female singers and TV journalists from Macedonia, Serbia, Albania, and Bulgaria as styling consultant for their public appearances and shootings.
