Natalie Dufkova is a student in her last year of studies at UMPRUM, in the clothing and shoe atelier, headed by Professor Libena Rochova. Her eccentric collection “Neverending Masopust”, was noticed even outside the Czech Republic and she got the chance to present it at Shanghai Fashion Week SS2020. As well, she showed it at the prestigious European event for young creative designers, Fashion Clash in Maastricht. Experience was also gained during a 6-month internship in Japan at the Matohu label. Natalie presents her collections every year at the Bunka Fashion Graduate University in Tokyo.
Her design is based on a distinct and youthful style. For Natalie Dufkova, it is typically a precise treatment of extraordinary or untraditional materials. An integral part is the emphasis on skill, local suppliers of materials and sustainable production, and at the same time, space for experimental fashion concepts. The goal is to bring modern esthetics, timeless design and a new outlook on clothing, as well as sharing various themes through fashion. Now she is introducing another ready-to-wear collection under her own new label NANICHE.
