Head of the Studio
doc. Liběna Rochová
She has been working in the field for many years, often representing Czech fashion design abroad (exhibitions and shows in Vienna, Paris, Lyon, New York, Dusseldorf and Los Angeles). Her experience and skills allow her to design film, theatre and stage costumes, tailor-made works of art, gowns for singer performances as well as everyday clothing, prêt-a-porter collections and her own collections of unique models, the most prestigious discipline for each fashion designer. Her work is inspired by individual and fine art and is more open to art than to strictly fashion design forms.
