Czech designer Sarka Siskova will be exhibiting her latest collection, “Cities Inside of Me” along with her first ever sample sale tomorrow, December 16th and Fashion Sensei readers are invited to attend this exclusive event.
A native to Zlin Czech Republic, designer Sarka Siskova has chosen New York City to showcase her collection of chic one-of-a-kind evening and day dresses. Inspired by two cultures Czech and American, Siskova uses high quality Italian silks, cottons, linens and satins to construct her garments. “My passion and, at the same time, challenge is fabrics,” says Siskova. “Like a sculptor with his chisel, I play games of euphoria and exuberance with textiles.”
Sarka Siskova is also the first and only designer from the Czech Republic to have her pieces displayed in the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), New York’s only museum dedicated to the art of fashion.
In addition, one of Siskova’s designs has been included in FIT’s most recent exhibition, “Seduction” featuring the first chronological exploration of the role of sexuality in fashion. The exhibition will include over seventy looks from the mid-eighteenth century to the present, using objects from the Museum’s permanent collection. The exhibition opened yesterday and runs through June 16, 2009. Admission is free.
