artist making head waves in the UK scene and abroad with her stylish representations of design and
commentary on social abundance, consumerism and modern ideals of beauty. In her fashion work, she
presents models as strong fearless women. Furthermore we can see her influence in religion, very clearly,
within her projects balancing between fashion and fine art. More than a digital camera, Eliška extensively
