Taking a Fashion Tour of Prague
Prague is an incredibly beautiful city to visit though most tourists do not have shopping high on their list of activities for a weekend away there.
However, fashion in Prague should not be underestimated. Luxury goods are not in abundance but if you look there are skilled local designers operating successful boutiques, vintage stores oozing with bold colour and hippy shops full of relaxed pieces to cherish.
Brits can take a nostalgic shopping trip by visiting this classic department store. C&A was an important part of the British high street for many years It’s not high fashion, doesn’t sell designer dresses and isn’t at the forefront of new trends but if it’s just a white shirt or black leggings you need, then they are a sensible choice.
The Prague store is just off St Wenceslas Square and stocks casual, everyday wear and every wardrobe basic you care to imagine, as well as stylish wedding dresses. C&A has become a world leader in sustainability applying the ethos to fasproducts, materials, production, the supply chain and their employees.
If you didn’t already know the secret you might pass by this delightful shop thinking it was full of bric a brac. Looking past the shop’s outward appearance and tucking yourself into the small space will reap huge fashion rewards.
Parazit sells Czech designs at a price which makes the locals happy. The Czech designers themselves actively choose to sell here so fresh, new, fun ideas for outfits are always appearing on the rails.
Nila is a funky little boutique at 806-91 Korunni in Prague. Bohemian is the vibe of the fashion at Nila, the eclectic mix of hippy style garments is refreshing. Sequin designer dresses are gorgeous but sometimes a lady needs something soft and pretty to wear easily at a picnic by the river.
Prague Fashion Museum and Shop
Wander round Prague’s Old Town and soak up the distinctive atmosphere, soon you’re sure to stumble upon this quirky fashion emporium. In the old cellar of the building there’s an incredible collection of vintage fashion spanning the decades between 1920 and 1980 is waiting. The exhibition changes every three months so regular visits always produce exciting new treasure.
The clothing and accessories are of the highest quality and the museum/shop is clean and bright. If vintage is your style then you are guaranteed to fall in love with this shop.
This Czech fashion label was established in 2003. All the garments sold in Leeda have been made in the Czech Republic. The textiles and local craft techniques used are an intrinsic part of the brands DNA.
Shopping in a new city should involve researching and purchasing clothes designed and made locally at Leeda this is entirely possible. The opportunity to speak with the people who designed the designer dresses you’re buying is also rare. The head designer, Lucie Kutalkova is often in the shop so speak with the staff while you’re there just in case!
If high end designer labels and couture houses are what you need on a trip to Prague then Parizska (aptly translated as Paris Street) is the area of the city for you.
This concentration of luxury shops is located near the Jewish Quarter in The Old Town. Dolce and Gabbana, Prada, Gucci are the type of names lining this beautiful avenue. Do be prepared to find a small range of items in these shops though. Prague is not a city with a large need for expensive goods so the amount imported is limited.
For those who are looking for designers dresses, or even eye-catching and unusual wedding dresses, there’s no doubt that Prague will deliver an unusual, stylish addition to your wardrobe.http://www.dailynewsz.com/taking-a-fashion-tour-of-prague/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Taking-a-Fashion-Tour-of-Prague.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Taking-a-Fashion-Tour-of-Prague-300x300.jpgTravelfashion,prague
