Lenka Sršňová
'BonBon' 2016 collection

FASHIONCLASH team attended the third edition of FashionLIVE! Bratislava. The only designer we knew is Lenka Sršňová who participated at FASHIONCLASH Festival in 2012. Back then we did a interview with her (read here). Since 2012 a lot has changed in her career, in a good way. She has developed her brand in such way that she we still see her authentic style. Next to creativity in her work she has also managed to create a line of clothes people actually can wear. She likes to experiment and innovate and also in this latest collection she tried out printing on silk.

Her hard work paid off, Lenka Sršňová was awarded best collection.
