Tereza Rosalie Kladošová is one of the Czech Republic’s top young fashion designers. Known for eye-catching bright colours and bold, fun cuts, she frequently uses her own materials – including from the waste products of wool manufacturing – to conjure up genuinely one-of-a-kind pieces. She also makes various other items and in her guise as a stylist co-created the look of popular Prague restaurant Eska. Last year the designer, who is in her mid 30s, took the overall prize in the prestigious Czech Grand Design awards.

In this entertaining, informal interview, Tereza Rosalie Kladošová discusses her DIY aesthetic, her love of home crafts, fast fashion, what is specifically Czech about her work – and a whole lot more.

Czech Next Wave is produced jointly by the Czech Centres network and Radio Prague International. It introduces listeners around the world to emerging, exciting and highly talented young Czech in various areas of the arts and beyond.
