Fashion Shows


The festival’s main Fashion Show, under the title Future is spectrum!, will present designers not only from the Czech Republic. The concept of the Jubilee Fashion Show revolves around the idea that the future is not a linear path but a dynamic spectrum of possibilities. This dynamism lies in the variety and possibilities of what can be perceived, like colors in the optical spectrum. Each point on the spectrum represents a potential reality and shows the vast and limitless nature of what lies ahead.

The Fashion Show encourages us to think about the fashion industry’s future through different perspectives and, at the same time, to be aware of technological advances related to the view of society, its progress, and development. The outdoor show will take place on Friday, May 10, on Platform 14/15 of the Bata Institute.

Who’ll be presenting at the show?

Tereza Helánová

Tereza Helánová is a designer and student of the Fashion Design Studio in Zlín. She has been designing and creating clothing since her studies at SSUD in Brno. Her style emphasizes the technological processing and construction of garments. While creating collections, she gets inspiration from her personal life and current world events.

Collection: LADA
The Lada collection focuses on the topic of breast cancer. The collection takes on a pink hue and uses an author-designed print on the garments. The print motifs conceal images from the histological examination of tissues performed to find tumor deposits. The samples are then dyed to give them their identical pink color. The author also experimented with developing a new material – bio couture. Creating this clothing material involves a colony of bacteria and scoby yeast (known as kombucha). She sees this sustainable direction of new, natural materials as essential for the future. The garments do not carry the grim course of the disease but instead represent the femininity, determination, and strength of patients who are undergoing or have undergone cancer treatment.

Pavel Mikliš

Pavel Mikliš is a second-year student at ADO UTB in Zlín. His interest in fashion and design dates back to when he applied to high school, initially as an architecture and interior design enthusiast, then spontaneously switching to clothing. Perhaps because of this interest, his clothes are more about form than function.

Collection: HOMMAGE À TOI
HOMMAGE À TOI – In your honor: inspired by a specific person and their relationship to them. The initial thoughts were to create a pattern that would best characterize the emotion that the person evokes in the artist and, in a way, celebrate it. He progressed from initial geometric designs to inspiration with flowers, asking himself which flower was significant to that relationship. The result is an abstract daffodil in an all-over print, subsequently varied by the colors and scale of the flowers themselves. The collection’s story revolves around the development of a relationship and its transformations. The source of inspiration was the legend of Narcissus, which reflects a message of self-reflection and awareness and warns of the consequences of one’s actions. The author himself infiltrated his inner Narcissus into the collection, thus influencing the creation process. The collection’s philosophy defines the relationship in the long term and seeks to preserve it for the future. That is reflected in the daffodils, which refer to a young man with no future whatsoever. It is, thus, in a way, a warning and an allegory of human nature.

Terezie Kožíková

She is a student of ADO UTB. She has already attended one art school, UMPRUM in Uherské Hradiště, focusing on the same subject. In the future, she would like to focus on costume design in theaters.

Collection: I See You – Metamorphosis
Although iris color is genetically determined, it does not remain the same from birth to old age. It can even change throughout a lifetime. It is common for the light blue eyes of newborns to darken by the first three years of life due to the production of melanin under the influence of sunlight. Each eye color is a spectrum that evokes different feelings in humans, or we build character on them. Her work seeks to transform each characteristic of eye color into models.

Karin Elízová

Karin Elízová is a master’s student at the Academy of Fine Arts. Simple cuts, straight lines, and geometric tendencies – all reflected in her long-standing fascination with modern architecture and deconstructivism.

Collection: “MESH”
In her new collection with the working title “0010”, she combines techniques of the present and the past. 3D printing and felting with knitting. She thinks that the synergy of the new and the traditional will be essential in the future. For the individual entities to retain their authenticity, for instance, even by the imperfect processing of the human hand.

Kateřina Klozová

Kateřina Klozová is a student at the Technical University of Liberec, studying for a Master’s degree in Fashion Design. She is close to technologies such as knitting, weaving, or printing. In her work, she is mainly interested in sublimation printing technologies, pattern making, and experimenting with non-traditional materials for textiles and clothing.

Collection: UGLY
The collection is inspired by broiler chickens. The shapes focus on the excessive volumes of the garments combined with the draping. The collection also features original sublimation prints and knitwear. At the same time, the collection should point to the idea of self-love regarding the female body and self-acceptance.
The clothing collection is augmented by jewelry from the Ferdda collection, where waste feathers from hens and roosters are processed, as they are no longer processed in industrial production and serve only as fertilizer for agricultural purposes. In the collection, the artist reflected on the vision of a future where women would no longer be subject to certain “social expectations.” ” This collection thus plays with the ugly and its boundary as such.” In the collection, the author tried to process her emotions and feelings, including insults associated with the perception of her own body by the surrounding society. What does the future hold for us?

Jakub Mikulášek

Jakub Mikulášek is a fashion and textile design student at FUD UJEP. His work focuses on creation with an emphasis on originality and concept. He enjoys exploring new unconventional ways, turning away from traditional tailoring with respect and experimenting with the idea behind the garment. He likes to find inspiration from philosophical or psychological impulses or abstract concepts that he translates into material form.

Collection: UNLEASHED
The clothing collection focuses on the confrontation of the human inner self with experienced tendencies of clothing and feelings of non-acceptance by today’s society. The collection aims at finding a way to authenticate and express one’s individuality, which is essential for us and our future.
The aim was to capture the process of uncovering the individual from an imaginary protective shell and revealing their true self, which they hide from broader society. In doing so, he opens up to the world and exposes the real him without fear of judgment or misunderstanding.

Zuzana Vrábeľová

Originally from Stara Halice, Slovakia, but currently living in Sweden, where she is studying a master’s program. In her work, she often works with material experimentally and seeks new expressions in craft techniques. Currently, her main focus is on experimental knitwear. Dominant themes in her work are femininity, brutal physicality, sexuality, and non-idealized female forms.

Collection: Birds of Omens
In many cultures, people believed that birds were messengers of the gods, bringing both good and bad omens from the future to earth. The collection plays with this idea and deconstructs it with a worldview that is anthropocentric and exploitative towards other species and nature. Would today’s bird messengers even descend to earth? What message would they bring? Would we listen to them?

Valerie Vrbová

Valerie Vrbová is a student at UMPRUM in Prague in the Studio of Fashion and Footwear Design. Ever since childhood, she has been getting to know herself and the world through art. She wants to create meaningful clothes, help society, and bring change. The artist’s work includes the UNIQUE CLIENT project, wherein she designed clothes for Kate, who had a limb removed due to cancer. Another recent project is the Atopé collection, which dealt with the issue of sensitive eczematous skin. She tried to understand this disease and solve the problems of someone who does not feel comfortable even in their skin. She designed clothes in soft, natural, and non-irritating materials with seams placed on the outer part of the clothes.

Collection: HapSen
The future appears to the author as lonely, overwhelming, and oblivious to man. This collection intends to show that the future is about connection, harmony, mutual aid, and empathy. The only way is a shared journey. If we estrange ourselves, what will be left? The HapSen project aims to enable blind people to “see” their clothes using haptic perception. Plastic representations of traditional textile motifs serve to visualize the patterns the wearer is wearing, allowing them to create their own style and image. The collection, made up of women’s and men’s designs, seeks inspiration from the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-sabi. Its core idea of beauty in imperfection refers to stories of people who, despite their “handicap,” can live their best lives. Here, the artist perceives a certain sparseness and intimacy of touch in connection with nature. The project is a collaboration with the student Žofija Soldánová and does not focus only on the issue of clothing. The project brings together creators across several disciplines who have come together with the sole intention of improving the living standards of the visually impaired through design.

Marija Petraytite

Marija Petraityte is an emerging Lithuanian fashion designer. In recent years, she has been gaining her expertise in fashion. She obtained a BA in Fashion Design from Vilnius Academy of Arts, and before that, she received an AP degree in Sustainable Fashion Design from Copenhagen School of Design and Technology.

She is inspired mainly by the natural organic form, history, and metaphysical philosophies – all intertwined in her design processes. She has exhibited her work in the Netherlands, Poland, China, the UK, the Czech Republic, Estonia, and Lithuania.

Collection: “Inhabitants of the Moss Land”
“Inhabitants of the Moss Land” is a conceptual clothing collection that seamlessly intertwines elements from ancient Baltic tribes within a futuristic perspective. Inspired by the cultural heritage of the Baltic region, particularly Lithuanian mythological symbols and ancient attire such as the sun, moon, wolf, meadow flowers, and grass-snakes, these iconic motifs serve as both visual anchors and narrative threads within the looks and jewelry. The color palette of the collection reflects the earthy tones prevalent in Baltic landscapes, with a blend of white, black, grey, sandy hues, and metallic tones of bronze and silver. These colors not only pay homage to the natural environment but also evoke a sense of timeless elegance and sophistication. “Inhabitants of the Moss Land” embodies the spirit of a new futuristic tribe, one that is both inspired by the past and transformed by the future.

Ema Domanická

As an aspiring fashion designer in her first year of her Master’s degree, her focus is on creating collections that are connected with honesty and emotional depth. She sees her art as an expression of herself and the world around her and therefore puts powerful emotion and sentimental value into it. She tries to put her self-reflective thinking into her work. Her greatest inspirations are in friends, family, and everyday people she meets on the street. She loves humor and tries to put it into her work, bringing freshness and fun to the fashion world.

Collection: “So that you don’t shit yourself”
This clothing knitwear collection focuses on the future through its honesty and sustainability. In it, the artist reflects on what her work should look like in the future, prioritizing honesty by focusing on sustainability. She uses the technique of knitting to create handcrafted straightforward phrases and sentences that often contain vulgarities to focus attention on her authenticity. At the same time, she strives for sustainability by using fabric scraps and leftovers, transforming them into her yarn. The collection consists of five outfits with colorways that are energetic and positive, contrasting the negative knitted sentences. The overall goal is to express honesty and encourage sustainable thinking and unadulterated IU people in the future.
