ONCE UPON A TIME

‘Once Upon a Time’ presents menswear, womenswear and accessories by five young Czech designers who are connected by an archetypical quality of imagination. Re-creating long-forgotten fairy tale landscapes, they weave poetic, witty and haunting stories into fabrics, furs, metals, skins and gems.

Here, fashion meets fantasy… Prepare to play in an immersive world where dresses are worn by monkey kings and mountaineers, foxes transform into women adorned by flower-shaped silver and pearls, gravel is turned into coats and rings, a child’s drawings come to life and forests of rabbit skulls remind us of the traps of vanity.
