Slavomíra Vlasová, born in 1985 in Martin, Slovakia, studied fashion design at the Schoоl of Applied Arts and at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava (courses in architecture, sculpture and photography). Third prize winner at B-fashion contest in Zlín (Czech Republic) 2008, in the year 2009 Vlasová was a finalist of Bratislava Brillance Fashion Talent contest, and in 2012 laureate of The New Faces of Slovak Fashion Scene competition. Her collections were presented in Bratislava, Prague, Vienna, Paris, Beirut and New York (Slovak Fashion Night, 2013).

„I believe my outfits are very womanly, smart and elegant. I like to use a variety of materials in creating interesting structures and surfaces on dresses. I love minimalism and prefer white, black, creamy, gold colours. I also like using lace and embroidery. Fashion is an exciting play for me. I love it. My work is inspired by traditional Slovak clothes, oriental costumes, nature and natural structures, undersea animals, bottom fauna. Historic clothes inspire me as well. Ethnic cultures, Slavonian especially, offer an amazing source of inspiration.”

L.I.G.H.T

My L.I.G.H.T collection is based on traditional Slovak clothes, especially men’s trousers from Liptov region. Its lovely embroidery inspired me. I used black and white in order to point out a clear contrast and pure beauty of the black bone lace on the dresses. The collection contains fifteen women’s outfits on which I emphasized accessories like hairdresses and head decorations inspired by parta, folk headdress, a piece of the traditional wedding outfits which originates from the beautiful Važec Region. The headdresses are stylized with flowers and a lot of beads. The materials are silk and cotton. The collection is very light, womanly, it is about pure Slovak beauty. Its presentation is accompanied by mixed traditional folk Slovak songs called Trávnice.
