If these luxurious fabrics and Zika Ascher's personality catch your interest, don't hesitate to visit the Museum of Decorative Arts In Prague, currently displaying the exhibition titled "Šílený hedvábník" (The Mad Silkman). We bring you the details about the exhibition HERE.
We shall, however, get back to the runways of Mercedes-Benz Prague Fashion Week, where students from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague (UMPRUM) presented their models made specifically out of fabrics by the exceptional Zika Ascher. Get ready for a luxurious show!
These creations had to be a great challenge for the students!
Zika Ascher's fabrics are really unique! As you can see, the students treated them the way this kind of marvel deserves. How often can you get your hands on such a treasure, after all?
We love the combination of old craft and modern trends in these models.
The luxurious fabrics give contemporary fashion unique charisma and in this collection we may find many pieces we'd immediately call dibs on! For example a long black dress with a beige print - totally timeless elegance. We also like the pastel-colored dress with flowers and cut outs, which photos unfortunately don't do justice to, or the dress made out of scarves referencing the famous Ascher Squares (a collection of silk scarves with prints by famous painters).
It's clear that the UMPRUM students handled their task marvelously and deserve our admiration. Moreover, you can see all pieces from the collection with your own eyes at the Museum of Decorative Arts In Prague from March 28 till May 19.
