Slovak-born, London-based designer Sofia Tureková graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2021. Her designs have shown at NYFW, the V&A, and the Slovak NDM. The designer’s practice is driven by an amalgamation of critical theory, historical sources of craftsmanship and contemporary art influences whilst exploring a hybrid combination of experimental sculpture, innovative 3D draping, and new narrative design.
With an intricate focus on construction and fabrication, her signature silhouettes, draw inspiration from her former folklore dancing background. Her graduate collection ‘(p)Laced’ was recognised by leading Fashion Magazines and shortly after, The SFC.
The Slovak Fashion Council presented with Fashion Scout X Lone Design Club to debut “WHO AM I? Fashion Quest for Authentic Self” which tackles the topic of identity crisis featuring emerging designers FAMALE and Sofia Tureková.
