Call “Fives” on those front row seats:Who I am looking forward to seeing
Well, the last of the fashion weeks is finally upon us and my stomach and feet are thanking me ( a higher than normal influx of coffee paired with a higher than normal heel has my body reeling in pain).
So, who am I most looking forward to seeing and who should you be looking forward to as well? Here are my “chair savers” day by day
Tatiana Kovaříková- 8pm(20:00)- the designer’s A/W 2012 collection, which was shown at Prague Fashion Weekend two weeks ago, had solid tailoring, clean lines, and loads of black. If you want to see the best to compare against the future, come to the show and you’ll understand as soon as the first spotlight hits the model.
Zuzana Kubíčková-9pm(21:00)- her lingerie was such a hit at Prague Fashion Weekend that the blogosphere erupted immediately following her show. The Czech Grand Design Winner of 2011 has spent the last few weeks fine-tuning her Spring/Summer 2013 collection which she will debut at Designblok Premier Fashion Week.
Zdeňka Imreczeová- 5pm (17:00)- clean lines, modern cuts, and feminine silhouettes
Men by Zoot-6pm (18:00)- without question this is the PLACE to be on Friday night as three extremely talented designers finally show a men’s collection I am sure will be worthy of celebrations -I’ll bring the sekt. Sistersconspiracy, known for the more eclectic use of patterned fabrics is certainly for a man who had a bit of an edge. Mirka Horká has now made the rounds at both Prague Fashion Weekend and Dreft Fashion Week showing a very colorful Prada-esque collection. And finally, Pavel Ivančic, will debut his menswear collection- I’ve been told by the designer to expect his fine tailoring and minimalist details; I can only say that this is one of the collections I have been dying to see since I found out about it in July.
Obviously, you see my allegiances a line with menswear on Friday.
Designblok Fashion Talent Card- Karolína Juříková, Monika Krobová, Tereza Ujevičová -8pm- (20:00)- view new talent but three very “talented” designers.
Elle Talent Card- Miroslav Sabó – 2pm (14:00)- another young designer ready to be known on the fashion scene
Denisa Nová-5pm (17:00)- a talented main stay looking to debut another clever collection
Hana Zárubová-6pm (18:00)- her 2011 ‘Airforce’ Collection was nominated for Czech Grand Design- Designer of the Year. This year her collection Pantono may just take it for 2012.
Klára Nademlýnská-8pm (20:00)- a one-of-a-kind collection with a “couture-esque” feeling is set to excite the local fashion masses.
Timoure et Group- 9pm (21:00)
