Neumann / Moravia, Nehera, Rolný, Sbor, Prvodev, Slovenka, Weiss & Fürst, Halmoš, Detva, Lipa) is presented clothing production as well as means of corporate media - fashion drawing, fashion poster, advertisement, etc. An important source of information about local fashion is contemporary photography and reflection through fashion reports in periodicals.
