MONIKOVA HITTING THE RUNWAY @ FAT 2018!
Posted on April 11 2018
Don't miss your chance to see MONIKOVA hit the runway at Fashion Art Toronto! We go on at 8:15PM Thursday April 19th, 2018! Get your tickets HERE.
We are very excited to reveal this new collection, a mix of hand-made couture and ready-to-wear pieces. Monika has been hard at work on this for months and the vision is coming together beautifully.
Here's a sneak peak at some of the final pieces.....
Inspired by the Great Gatsby and Cabaret eras, and the uninhibited self-expression they represent, our show is complete with an on-stage Cabaret-style host and multimedia installation.
Our models will not only be walking.... they will be performing!
Models will play and interact according to what they're wearing, becoming a lively exploration of these pockets of wild, self-expression from before World War Two, and all this from our contemporary vantage point.
Look out for on-stage selfies and incredible hand-made headpieces!
The theme at FAT this year is CONNECT, and the story we want to tell overall is the growth of how we connect through self-expression from a post-World War world until today.
"It seems like right now everybody is so strong to express themselves through clothes, there is no boundaries, there is no rules, there is only freedom of expression. Going with the selfies... you can be pretty much anybody! You can express yourself even without having to face people sort of, it's staggering with the technology we have now, you can have your own Cabaret."
– Monika Francikova
The MONIKOVA FAT 2018 runway collection will be a blend of street-ready women's wear as well as exclusive couture items, using a wide variety of fabrics in a neutral, feminine colour scheme.
We want to show that soft, dreamy side, the fantasy of the Great Gatsby, and blend it with the raw, sexual creative energy of the Cabaret. Because ultimately as women, we all have these contrasting elements within us.
MONIKOVA is about creating space for women to feel strong in their sexuality, in their creative life power, and still have it be feminine and classy.
Join us to see MONIKOVA express this and celebrate all aspects of a woman on the runway at FAT 2018!
