is a collection which is a continuation of her diploma thesis from the AFAD entitled Puder.
"I elevate designer textiles through a collection of utilitarian objects that are represented in textile creation through tapestries, carpets and clothing. Utility objects show quality in the choice of material and craftsmanship, they are designed to create a symbiosis between the space and the wearer."
Karolína Čechová, jury member in the Fashion Design section:
"Intersecting - A very successful collection. I appreciate Jana's overlap and connection of other design disciplines, not only those related to clothing, such as textiles and glass. At the same time, the entire work preserves uniformity, simplicity, the idea of quality design and craftsmanship. She understands clothing as one of the many components that make up our life, she does not underestimate it, neither overestimate it.
Branko Popovic, jury member in the Fashion Design section:
"The project has the potential for co-creative and sustainable development of a practice in which fashion is placed in the wider context of design."
