Czech Designers at the International Fashion Showcase

Czech Centre London proudly presents Voyage through Central Europe, a fashion exhibition organised as part of the British Council and British Fashion Council’s International Fashion Showcase 2014 in parallel with London Fashion Week.

The exhibition will feature 14 emerging designer talents from Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia who will present their newest collections of garments, jewellery and accessories. The original exhibition design by Gaspar Bonta is accompanied by exquisite glass objects from LASVIT.

The Czech participation is curated by the founder of the Czech Fashion Council, stylist, muse and former model, Olo Křížová.
Olo has chosen a handful of very young yet brilliant designers whose work borders between visual arts and fashion and creatively returns to the traditional and handmade materials in combination with new technologies. Their sophisticated design often conveys designers’ personal stories into their entire collections.
Petra Ptáčková, Hana Frišonsová, Jana Mikešová, Pavel Berky and Awkward (represented by Lucie Jelínková and Monika Nováková) will all personally come to present their work in London.

open daily 10 AM - 6 PM

PRIVATE VIEW takes place Friday 14th February at 7.30pm and features a live fashion performance by Petra Ptáčková followed by DJ V! (Oozlum), videomapping and drinks.
