Up and coming design star Sofia Turekova will present the latest inspired collection for her SOF.T label at Couture Fashion Week New York at 8:00 pm on Friday September 9, 2016. Part of the event’s 24th season, the runway show will be held at the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan, New York City, in the heart of the Big Apple.
A native of Slovakia, designer Sofia Turekova is currently studying at the prestigious Central Saint Martins University in London. She began her career path at a young age, participating in many local and foreign fashion contests and shows. Slovakia and its culture has had a strong impact on her artwork. In 2013 the Slovak National Museum presented her folk-influenced fashion collection “Ornament” at the Maison de l’Artisanat et des Métiers d’Art in Marseille, France. In 2015 she was named the winning designer at Bratislava Fashion Days.
Ms. Turekova’s designs are conceptual and often dramatic, incorporating varying shapes aiming to express feelings via transparency and construction. The Sofia woman does not use low necklines and transparency to seduce. The Sofia woman is a confident, fearless female who can be just as seductive without revealing too much. Applied garment patterns in Ms. Turekova’s collections border between art and wearability, striving to provide the wearer with a relaxed feeling of tasteful elegance.
Sofia Turekova’s exceptional talent is catapulting her straight onto the New York Fashion Week scene with the presentation of the avant-garde collection “The Optimist” at Couture Fashion Week.
