Barbora Mrazkova – A Young Icon for Sustainable Fashion
The future of fashion has taken a surprise turn in the era of fast fashion. We have witnessed that people are aware of sustainable fashion in the modern age. Barbora Mrazkova’s perspective has brought this forward. She is a 20-year-old fashion design student at the Fashion Design School in Prostejov. Barbora has showcased her version of clothing made from recyclable material. Her final work on recycling revolved around this dress designed from Wienie-Pak cellulose casing donated by ViskoTeepak. Yes, you heard that right!
The Road to Inspiration
The talented 20-year-old worked at ViskoTeepak in the Spring of 2019. While working with our team, she noticed that most of the cellulose is utilized, but some is left as waste after being checked for quality. At the same time, she was looking for some inspiration for her school project. Her focus was on ecology, and the subject of recycling came to mind. All the pieces started to fit together. Her idea was to utilize the waste to a certain extent in her future work. That was the turning point for Mrazkova. The teachers recommended that she sign up for the “Young Fashion Creator” in Jihlava. Her creativity and expression of design aesthetic impressed competition the judges. Based on that, she won the first prize.
