As you probably noticed, I started working on a new fashion project where in every article I introduce a new talented Czech designer. I meet a lot of interesting people through my job in Cosmopolitan magazine and I found out one thing. It can be pretty difficult to make it as a Czech designer. You can be super talented but if you don’t know the right people, you might struggle to make it. That is a shame. Therefore, I want to introduce as many as I can here on my blog. You might remember a post about Lucka who creates elegant fascinators. Her pieces were shot with wonderful dresses that were created by her sister Martina. Now it is time to tell you a little more about her.
Beautiful dresses for everyone
I remember when I went to see Martina’s fashion show where she introduced her collection What time is it? It was three years ago and I really loved what she did with her brand Pearl Fashion Designer. Now 3 years later, I am wearing a white dress from that very collection. I love that she is creating fashion for everyone. According to Martina, her clothes should reflect the person who is going to wear them. It is important that they feel comfortable, confident and beautiful. She wants to create for all women, regarding their age and size. This is very important for me. It is great to see all the wonderful clothes on the runway, but when you find out the designers only make sizes for super skinny models, you are disappointed. All women deserve clothes they feel beautiful in.
Czech designer with a taste for sustainable fashion
When I spoke with Martina, she told me that even as a little girl, she was making paper dresses and she always wanted to do something that made her happy. Now she really cares that her brand is ethical and ecological. She checks how the cotton was harvested and weaved and if it is possible to reuse some materials. Her dream is to have customers who also cares about sustainability. Martina and I share the love for travelling and good food and I am really glad to have such a talented friend. I wish her all the best in the future, but I am sure she is going to do some great things! What do you think about Martina’s designs?
