What a debut for Jiri. This Czech based designer and ballet dancer infuses folk-art inspired prints with his intense sense of style. Jiri’s collection was filled with beautiful silk, lace, embroidery, and crystal embellishments. Everything from the hats by Czech headwear designer, Tonak, to the crystal embellishments by Preciosa were absolutely stunning. Kalfar cites Tatyana, the celebrated heroine in Alexander Pushkin’s ‘Eugene Onegin’ as his inspiration for this collection.
“It has been my lifelong dream to show in New York”
Supermodels Paulina Porizkova, Linda Voitova and Alina Baikova (all Czechs) Walked and showed their support on Kalfar’s runway. This was a truly fabulous showcase, great things are in store for Jiri. Hope to see more from him in the future.
