Fashion unites technicality and creativity in the most relatable way regardless of whether you feel intrigued or repulsed. 

My collection

This collection aims to explore the human tendency to romanticize the macabre and people’s fascination with crime stories and violence. By giving an intense impression of an almost untouchable human being similar to the Slovak mafia during 90s, the garments in my collection should fulfil the purpose of everyday armour for its wearer.

My inspiration

The title “VILLAGE MAFIA” refers to the Slovak 90s criminal era and the aesthetics of historical village workwear. Visually the whole concept can be characterised as a juxtaposition of obvious almost cliché signs of masculinity and outrageous wealthy behaviour combined with poor style habits and lack of fashionable manners.

My design in 3 words

Technical, sculptural & surreal.

My VR fashion film

This film is made for VIA Design & Business' exhibition ERA360 where it's viewed through virtual reality headsets. That way you get the full experience of standing inside the designer’s unique universe with a 360-degree view of everything. Naturally, it will be a very different experience to watch it on your own device. Use the arrows on your computer or click and drag in order to "look around".
