Slavica MARINA sample of design


„Marína's work was shown to me a few years ago by my Bea, the store manager of slavice. Since then, I've been 'carrying' her somewhere inside, and our paths have met a few times and we've had the opportunity to get to know each other better, to get to know each other. I like its taste, its courage. Her story can be a great inspiration for all of us. When a person listens to the voice of his soul, is not afraid to cross the threshold of the comfort zone, takes courage and does things with his heart, I believe you can feel it from them. For a creative cut, he takes inspiration and knowledge from painting, conceptual art, sculpture and literature...

I am extremely glad that from Tuesday 28 March you can come to us in the slávica not only to admire. Tomorrow (28.3.2023), by the way, we'll be chatting there from 16:00 to 19:00. Stop by!“

Ivica Jusková, founder of slávica



The MARINÁ brand offers minimalist design, cutting experiments, variability and comfort. A characteristic feature of MARINA is playfulness and color monochrome. The MARINÁ brand is a kind of game with clothes and in clothes. The designer communicates with the wearer by offering "her" or "him" to find their own way of wearing, as for example in the case of the unique UFOdress ® with over 50 variations of wearing in the form of a dress, pants or skirt in one garment. The UFOdress ® garment won The Best dress Award at the World Fashion Festival Awards 2023 in Dubai. The MARINÁ brand offers clothing made from natural materials such as cotton, wool or silk. The designer strives for as little waste as possible and maximum use of material.


Marina Žiaková,

The founder of the brand, originally trained as a historian, later studied fashion design at AFAD in the Two-year supplementary study, which she successfully finished five years ago. This form of study is very suitable for those who wish to expand into a new career field later in life.


We are very happy about the success of this graduate of ours!
