Mentoring the winner of EcoChic Design Award
To become even an external force of the Hong Kong based NGO Redress is my great pleasure. Get in touch with the finalists of the EcoChic Design Award is making it all even better. After one hour skype with Pat Guzik - the ultimate winner of the Eco Chic Design Award in January 2016 - we fashioned a plan for her to acquire knowledge and contacts she needs to get closer to her dream about established fashion brand. Good luck, Pat!

Christmas in the Slovak National Theater

Fashion Business Workshop was born
I have founded the Fashion Business Workshop out of my own experience of being a student of fashion design university and living the frustration of not having any resource of information and support for launching my own business, my own brand. Successful brand.
I was asked in the past by several designers to consult them and help them to launch their activities or even to take their brands to another level. Basic knowledge about business and strategic marketing is a must to launch or improve your projects. And so Fashion Business Workshop was born.
The second branch I am developing is sustainable fashion - of course. First workshop on sustainable fashion is coming soon. Thanks to everybody staying by my side in these days.
Slovak Fashion Week - workshop and conferences
During the Slovak Fashion Week I was invited to talk about my favorite topics - fashion business, management and strategic marketing & sustainable fashion and responsible entrepreneurship. To manifest my values and ideas in reality I also run two days workshop with the fashion and marketing students. Thanks for all to Slovak Fashion Council.
