Design & the City

The Černá růže shopping passage showcases the cream of Czech fashion talent June 9-11

I am always desperately searching for any events where homegrown talent from the Czech Republic is the main attraction. Funnily enough, these are actually hard to come by. The great people at Design & the City have decided to help all of us, Czechs and non-Czechs alike, discover the potential that lives in our very city! The group has taken it upon themselves to showcase the crème de la crème of accessory and clothing designers in Prague.


The event, which will take place inside the Černá růže shopping passage (Na příkopě 12, Prague 1) will start Thursday, June 9 at 10am and run until Sunday, June 11 at 7pm.


Here are my top picks of designers I am looking forward to seeing for the first time and again!
