Palivo/ doslovne udržateľná móda 2018-2019
Drevo, kov, zvyškový textil...



Stále rastúca rodina objektov
ktoré sú úvahou o veľmi prítomnom vzťahu  módy a enviromentu / 
dopade módneho priemyslu na životné prostredie. 
Kladie otázku ako prítomna je príroda/prirodzenosť v módnom priemysle.
Kolekcia vznikla ako antióda oslavných hymien, 
ktoré spievame so zaklonenou hlavou a očami zatvorenými 
smerom k módnym nebesám.
Selekcia drevených bakúľ sa diala veľmi intuitívne a prirodzene,
 v lesoch Francúzskeho Ardèche,
v Amsterdamských parkoch a mestských perifériách a na Fatranských lúkach, 
kam som chodievala
pacificky loviť svoje múzy a nechávala sa očarovať elementárnou archetypálnosťou
 a silou materiálu neopracovaného dreva, 
ktorá pochádza z jeho pravdivosti, jedinečnosti a neopakovateľnosti. 
 Z nepotreby na argumenty pre svoju existenciu.
Po zasadení do módneho kontextu jasným kontrastom poukazuje
 na svoju vlastnú surovú prirodzenosť vo svete neprirodzenosti, 
ktorý kráča rýchlosťou svetla do akejsi tmy, ktorá síce láka vojsť, 
no z ktorej týmto metaforicky robím krok naspäť,
a potom ešte dva...
S nádejou uviesť romantiku módneho priemyslu na pravú mieru.

thinking of wedding dresses as one use objects, questioning it´s functionaliy and symbolism,
 I stress the big white idea of  virginty, the cultural and religious tradition and
the promises of loving someone, loving them forever...

My Graduation fashion collection
Gerrit Rietveld Academie 
FASHION SHOW 
2018


The search for freedom being one of the main themes for this generation 
of emerging artists and designers, 
Nikola took it to the extreme for her graduation project. 
It is a collection of garments behind which there is no pre conceptualized idea other than
 the materials being used, damaged or acquired from free sources.
 It is the direct contact with the fabric, without patternmaking 
and without the use of a ruler.
 It is the sensual experience of colors and materials and shapes
 in space and time,
 a celebration of the creation and the existence of it. 
It is a physical metaphor for what I perceive, believe in and am… 
It is what it wants to be.”

Words, as she pointed out in her thesis,
 by definition fail to capture the reality freed from human conceptualizing.  
Freedom, whatever the word represents, is always worth striving for.

COAT I
  COAT II  
  2014

coat by definition: A coat is a garment worn by 
both men and women, for warmth or fashion.
 Coats typically have long sleeves and are open down the front, 
closing by means of buttons, zippers, hook-and-loop fasteners,
 toggles, a belt, or a combination of some of these.



blanket by definition: A blanket is a type of bedding
It is, generally speaking, a large piece of woven cloth,
 intended to keep the user warm, especially
 while sleeping or lying down.
 A blanket traps the radiant heat from the user's body, 
and instead of dissipating into the air, it warms the user. 
It also protects against heat being lost by convection.

The National Design Award of Slovakia in 2015

refusing to change by seasons,
 determinant to find, 
create and keep images that can stay permanently,
 above trends and for all times.

Diaper
2014
A product  result of an experimental workshop with Sonja Baumel, 
a bio scientist/artist with the purpose to grow curiosity about living materials.
After a proces of growing my own bactera Kombucha,
 a lightly effervescent fermented drink produced by cultivating a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast in a green tea medium, 
I applied a layer of  functionaity. 
 The Diaper is a prototype of an experimental idea of how the microbial material could be used. 
Kombucha culture, when dried, becomes a leather-like textile known as a microbial cellulose 
 that can be molded onto forms to create seamless clothing.
 It also has an ability to re-absorb liquids. 
I decided to use this attribute for creating a diaper pad which can serve to absorb bodily liquids. 
And because the whole science was a bit too serious for me, 
I decided to document it in a joke ´teleshopping like´ easthetics and make a video work, in addition

Enjoy

The Price of Fashion : Fashion Charity Auction and Debate,
 2016
Inaugural Fashion Charity Auction and Debate moderated by Aynouk Tan
This fashion charity auction generated  funds through auctioning
clothing items from well-known figures in the Dutch community.
This auction was complemented with a debate uncovering the value of fashion,
how its context changes when discussing it next to the refugee crisis,
how clothing gains significance through experience, in effect – what is the price of fashion?





















Melting candles

2017
a metaforical consideration of the mysteries of the feeling of disappointment 
in love
performed in a monologue with my candles



spin the bottle is a party game in which several (or more) players 
sit, stand, or kneel in a circle. 
A bottle is placed on the floor in the center of the circle.
 A player spins the bottle,
 and must kiss the person to whom the bottle points when it stops spinning
