Nicole Quadrio

Born less than a year ago, Nicole Quadrio is a label based in London. After graduating, Nicole has collaborated on several projects, gaining coverage in the fashion press – including magazines such as Vogue Italia – and leading to Nicole’s involvement in projects featured on platforms like Show studio, Nick Knight. Thriving off being surrounded by eclectic personalities and talents, she feeds her creativity into brilliant creative endeavors where she finds inspirations for her collections.

The themes of her work develop through the feeling of sometimes not being able to verbally express emotions. This brings her to face challenging situations by drawing, collaging and painting. Nicole then combines other images, themes and photographs that further express those topics. The resulting garments’ physical forms reflect visual hints in the images, which are then developed with the use of innovative pattern cutting mixed with classic techniques. Special features of this brand are the strong prints generated through original collages and drawings.

Nicole wishes to develop her label in an ethical way.

Helen Mertl

HELEN MERTL is a well-known Czech fashion designer based in Prague. After studies at Secondary School of Applied Arts, she gradually created her brand characterized by simplicity, luxurious fabrics and easy cuts accentuating female figure in surprising ways. Since 1999, Helen has designed many limited collections of bridal and evening wear. In the HELEN MERTL studio you can try on clothes of different designs and consult about suitable materials and colours. Custom-tailored wedding dresses are typical of the brand.

Helen creates minimalist looks with remarkable details that are driven by lightness and the least adjustment of natural fabrics (such as silk chiffon, stretch silk and wool) preferably in basic colours (black, powder tones, red).

Helen herself admits that she is strongly inspired by Prague for its historic buildings and the fashion of the 1920s and 1930s which is somehow present in her designs.
Her iconic ribbon dresses are sewn by hand.
