Eia Radosavljevic

Associate Professor, Adj., Fashion Design

Eia Radosavljevic has been teaching at SAIC since 1999. She took her sabbatical during the 2021 Spring Semester.

Eia Radosavljevic is a fiber artist whose current work comprises millinery materiality and a dialog of object as displayed versus worn. Radosavljevic’s previous dance career presents in the work as immanent movement within form, and a forage into writing poetry is now instrumental in her process. Eia Millinery Design opened in New York City in 1991 and continues in Chicago as a bespoke design firm.

As an educator, Radosavljevic has lectured at the Estonian Academy of Arts and Australia’s International Millinery Forum on multiple occasions. Her works are in the permanent collections of the Chicago History Museum and the Staten Island Museum of Arts, and have been exhibited at ARC, Flatfile and Thomas Masters galleries in Chicago, the Chicago Cultural Center, Mudman Gallery in Montana, the Cultural Arts Center of Columbus, Palos Verdes Art Center and St. Kilda Town Hall in Melbourne. She is a member of the Fulbright Specialist Roster through 2024.
