Young Czech and Slovak designers are coming to Halles St. Géry/Sint-Gorikshallen on the weekend of 9-11 November, bringing their creative silhouettes, sense of humor and superb craftsmanship. Czech & Slovak Fashion Festival will also include up-cycling workshops, and meetings with the Belgian fashion scene.
14 Czech fashion designers and 4 Slovak labels will present their work in Halles St. Géry/Sint-Gorikshallen from 9 to 11 November. Bold accessories and extraordinary jewelry, modern embroidery and stark minimalism, female and male fashion – the carefully curated selection offers a sneak peek into the best of the fashion scenes of the two countries. Moreover, the fashion offer will be accompanied by gift items and off-beat home accessories. In partnership with MAD, the festival also brings Belgian guests to professional and public events in a dialogue with Czech and Slovak designers.
“Values significant for the contemporary Czech and Slovak fashion are highly precise local manufacturing, traditional crafts and techniques, focus on textile design and folklore motives, combined with playfulness, bit of provocation, recycling and up-cycling approaches, urban culture and minimalist aesthetics,” says the curator Darina Zavadilová.
Besides the designers’ market, the festival also includes a B2B event, three workshops on fashion upcycling by the designers (Saturday November 10 at 3 pm) and free babysitting with children workshops.
Designers, bloggers and journalists, buyers and curators and other professionals from the field of fashion and design are warmly invited to join the B2B session on Friday, 9 November, at 11 am, with prior registration at firstname.lastname@example.org.
