Preciosa Celebrates 20th Designblok

The 20th edition of Designblok – the Czech Republic’s biggest annual design event – is hitting Prague from 25th to 29th October. And so naturally, we teamed up with two of the country’s most prominent designers to celebrate fashion, style and craftsmanship.

Together with Klára Nademlýnská, we created an extraordinary collection using various luxury materials and Bohemian crystal. Hotfix transfers and sew-on stones were used carefully to enhance the mood of the collection, called A Night in a Church. The looks come accompanied by a capsule of jewelry comprised of our hand-made cabochons.

The collection was created to celebrate not only 20 years of Designblok, but also the designer´s 20th anniversary working in the Czech fashion industry. Coincidentally, Klára launched her brand exactly 20 years ago, just as the very first Designblok took place.

The show is an invite-only event, but we would like to invite fashionistas around the globe to be virtually present. We will be live-streaming the catwalk show - 18.30 on 28th October - on the Preciosa Components Facebook page. Don't miss it!

Another star of the Czech fashion scene, Miro Sabo – named Fashion Designer of the Year 2016 at Czech Grand Design – will introduce his collection inspired by his favorite painters Boticelli, Tizian and Bronzino. He has skillfully incorporated Hotfix Transfers, Nacre Pearls and many more crystal components into his collection to bring the audience back to the period of Mannerism and the Renaissance. He has also recreated a number of Orient-inspired banyans for women. Faithful to his bespoke style, he wasn't afraid to decorate some already highly ornate materials.

Stay tuned for Sabo´s show; it will hit the catwalk on Oct 26th, 2018 and will also be live-streamed on the Preciosa Components Facebook profile.
