Can fashion be art? Is there space for true artistic vision and radical new ideas in this glossy business-oriented creative industry? The work of Liběna Rochová’s students from the Prague’s Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design proves it can. These exceptionally gifted young designers entertain us and challenge our expectation of what clothes can actually mean, and what forms of design are possible. Not only do these creative souls have ideas, but they have the technical skills to make them real. This exhibition showcases new collections by Michaela Čapková, Antonína Záblotská, Zoltán Tóth, Agáta Seeháková, Barbora Procházková, Sára Beránková, Karolína Karpíšková, Natálie Dufková, Natálie Nepovímová, Aleš Hnátek, Tereza Kanyzová and Eduard Ganoczy, all drawing inspiration from Czech cultural heritage. Accompanied by a Czech Fashion Pop-Up shop, introducing a selection of Czech independent labels to London fashion lovers.
