The Slovak Fashion Night introduced Slovakian designers Zlatica Hujbertová, Lucy Racekova and Ingrid Budovská in tandem with the Austrian designer Adriane Toth and Mialy Seheno from Madagascar. This year’s motto was “Fashion Fights Malnutrition”.
Hosts for the evening included American actor Brad Pennington and the Slovakian celebrity host Tamara Heribanova. Slovakia’s very own Double Cross Vodka offered delicious cocktails to all in attendance while DJ Eitan Noyze spins the after party. Proceeds from the evening were donated to Maventy Foundation www.maventy.org and their initiative to build sustainable health care model in rural Madagascar, to save human lives, improve health and quality of life through the most modern ways of prevention and early intervention.
The aim of Slovak fashion Night was to expose influential American audiences to the cultural, intellectual and social richness of the Central European Region. The continued goal, through awareness, is by creating opportunities for collaboration among artists, designers, and performers; ultimately prompting to explore and encourage innovative partnerships between leaders from various public and private sectors of Slovakia, Austria, Africa and the United States.
