The history of Shooting Fashion Stars, is a storied one full of lofty ambitions and seeped in an idea of ushering in an emerging generation of fashion designers with an emphasis on haute couture style, tailoring, and design. With a level of support mainly found amongst the likes of the major Fashion Weeks throughout the world,  the SFS team has been able to open the doors to the fashion elite in the Czech Republic- a sphere of influential photographers, established designers, journalists, and fashion editors that make this country’s fashion industry tick.

Designs that have graced the catwalk in previous years included- Zuzana Kubickova (2012 winner of Fashion Designer of the Year)  who went on to win the prestigious award at the Czech Grand Design festival which took place in mid-March.  Chatty, Sistersconspiracy, Zdeňka Imreczeová, and Zuzana Veselá have also shown collections during previous seasons of SFS. To hold a place on the coveted SFS catwalk, one needs a nod of recognition from the team, known as the SFS Guardians- a group of editors, fashion photographers, professors, and fashion designers.

This year’s Shooting Fashion Stars program will be held in the iconic space of Galerie Mánes- located in a picturesque section of Prague alongside the Vltava River. The show opens on Friday evening with an exclusive fashion show by four designers with special host Jakub Polanka:

On Saturday and Sunday Shooting Fashion Stars opens to the public with a “showroom” concept that allows the fashionable public to shop the current collections and speak to the designers personally. It’s a great chance to meet all of the greats in one place and of course make appointments for those you would like to see again.
