With a growing number of supermodels hailing from the Czech Republic (think Eva Herzigova, Hana Soukupova, Karolina Kurkova and Daniela Pestova), it's not surprising there's an up-and-coming fashion scene in the country's capital. Unlike in Europe's more established fashion hubs, you can buy ready-to-wear designer creations off the shelf at reasonable prices here. Ivana Follova (below left; Vodickova 36, tel: 420 296 236 497; www.ivanafollova.com ) is leading the charge. Follova works with soft silky materials, which she dyes in striking patterns and colours. The clothes are sought after by prominent Czech businesswomen and actors as each piece is unique. There are elegant evening gowns, practical office suits (from 15,000 koruna/HK$7,000) and multicoloured knits (from 7,900 koruna). For original designer knitwear, head to Navarila Design (Elisky Krasnohorske 4/11, tel: 420 271 742 091; www.navarila.cz ). Fashion designer Martina Nevarilova specialises in everyday knitwear in an easy-care merino-polyester blend. Prices start at 2,100 koruna. Timoure et Group (V Kolkovne 6, tel: 420 222 327 358; www.timoure.com ) has a stylish range of timeless men's and women's clothing. Shirts cost from 2,190 koruna, silk skirts from 2,380 koruna and leather jackets from 7,900 koruna. The autumn winter 2007/2008 collection from Tatiana (Dusni 1, tel: 420 224 241 594; www.tatiana.cz ) reflects an art deco style, with dark colours brought alive with accents of lilac, green and red. Loose tops (from 2,500 koruna), dresses (from 24,000 koruna), skirts, trousers (from 5,000 koruna), suits and coats are made from delicate wool materials. Studio Hana Havelkova (Dusni 10, tel: 420 222 326 754; www.havelkova.com ) specialises in black and white designs and has a range of stylish jackets (from 2,700 koruna) and dresses (from 2,500 koruna). Trained in Sweden, Hana Stocklassa has been designing women's clothing for Boheme (below right; Dusni 8, tel: 420 224 813 840; www.boheme.cz ) since 1991. The basic range includes knitwear (from 2,700 koruna), while a leather jacket will set you back 73,900 koruna. At Max Fred (Tynska Ulicka 5, tel: 420 224 826 448), fashion designer Iska Fisarkova offers a variety of designer shirts (2,800 koruna each) and wool jackets (6,000 koruna each). Another designer who is making waves is Klara Nademlynska (Dlouha 3, tel: 420 224 818 769; www.klaranademlynska.com ), who opened her first store in Prague in 1998. Nademlynska did her apprenticeship in the salons of Paris and a French influence is evident in her style. Consider booking a tour of boutiques with Prague Walks (tel: 420 222 322 309; www.praguewalks.com ). The company can arrange appointments and fittings with many of the city's designers.
