Alice Klouzková at Local/Global: Intersection

A Symposium in partnership with the Fashion Research Network exploring the theme of the local versus the global from the perspectives of historical and contemporary fashion. Researchers from the Fashion Research Network will present papers looking at the local and theglobal in a historical context with responses from contemporary curators and designers.

UMPRUM’s Fashion Design Studio postgraduate Alice Klouzková will talk about her recent project: Heritage - Tradition, Innovation, Fashion. The project displays traditional Czech and Moravian textile techniques and their potential uses in fashion design. The purpose is to show that traditional crafts aren’t fated for extinction, but can exist as a functional part of contemporary clothing. The project supports local manufacturers, tells their stories and rich history and demonstrates their priceless experience. Part of the presentation will also be the story of a unique Czech institution - The Centre for Folk Art Production. This institution which sadly no longer exists, brought artists, ethnographers, craftspeople and sellers together in unique cooperation for half a century.

Alice Klouzková graduated from the Fashion Design studio at AAAD and after her studies, worked as an assistant there for several years. In 2005 together with Jana Jetelová, she established the SISTERSCONSPIRANCY studio which is nowadays known for original menswear. Since 2014, she has been the Head of the Fashion Design Studio at Scholastika, a private post-secondary technical school for visual communications. As part of her postgraduate studies at AAAD in Prague she has been working on her thesis Innovation and the new application of traditional technologies in fashion design. In 2016, she published a book entitled Heritage, Innovation, Fashion.
