Once Upon a Time: Czech Fashion at the International Fashion Showcase

The Czech Centre London and the Czech Fashion Council proudly presented Once Upon a Time, a fashion exhibition of five emerging Czech designers organised as part of the British Council and British Fashion Council’s International Fashion Showcase 2015 in parallel with London Fashion Week on 20-24 February 2015



Once upon a time presented women, men and children’s wear and accessories created by five young Czech fashion and jewellery designers whose work is connected by an almost archetypal quality of their imagination. It’s as if they were re-creating long forgotten fairy tale landscapes inscribing at times poetic, at times witty and sometimes even haunting stories into fabrics, furs, metals, skins and gems. In this exhibition, fashion meets fantasy. So prepare to play and immerse into a world where fashion garments are worn by monkey kings and mountaineers (Petra Ptáčková), foxes transform into women adorned by flower-shaped silver, crystals and pearls (Janja Prokić), gravel is turned into coats and rings for modern princes (Mirka Horká), crayon drawings of a spontaneous child become alive (Markéta Martišková) and forests of rabbit skulls remind us of the traps of vanity (Štěpán Růžička).

The exhibition was curated by Olo Krizova, founder of the Czech Fashion Council and designed by Deform Studio.
