It has become a habit that on May 1st streets of Bratislava fill up with designs from young slovak fashion designers. Fashion marš! is an event that proves that slovak fashion is ready to wear and belongs to the streets. Every year slovak celebrities join the crowd of marching models to support young fashion designers.

On this year’s Fashion marš! we discovered personal charm of one young actress dressed in Colorcode collection from Lenka Sršňová. Puojd Textiles created series of colorful and distinctive patterns for this collection.
Lenka’s designs were coupled with new ones from Puojd (shop happily here) and it was all photographed by the great Jakub Gulyás.
If you like Jakub’s art don‘t miss his exhibition with Andrea Pojezdálovain Imperia Design from 11.6. to 12.7.2015 with opening on 11.6. at7 pm.

You were part of Fashion marš! This year as one of the celebrities supporting young fashion design. How do you feel about this unusual style of fashion?
Yes I perceived Fashion marš! as one fantastic event where young slovak designers showed their work. An interesting addition to the models were famous dancers and actressesdressed in these outstanding dresses and for me it was an honor and joy to be part of this fun march. Every single piece was exceptional and I am very happy that we have so many talented fashion designers here in Slovakia.I keep my fingers crossed for them all, go on!

Are you up to date with slovak fashion designers? Do you have your favourite one?
Untill the Fashion marš! I only knew the following names: Boris Hanečka, Lukáš Kimlička, Lenka Sršňová and Andrea Paldan. It means out of the slovak designers I only knew their work. Thanks to the Fashion marš! I was able to "widen my horizons" and got to know new big talents and now thanks to this shooting I got to know you. Yaaaay! And now I have this gorgeous hoodie, thank you! But to say just one name, I am not so sure, you are all very different from eachother and I can’t put you all in one box. Each and every one of you is unique and that is a good thing, because nobody can mix up your work.

What attracted you the most as a person taking part in the fashion march?
I was the most attracted by the dress I was wearing myself, it was form Boris Hanečka (I was quite cold in it, but it is beautiful sexi-romantic) and reactions of people passing by, they were very positive. It was very obvious that they liked and enjoyed this march and that made me really happy because it became obvious that this Fashion marš! Had a point and it is a good thing.

You become a muse for some of the photographers of Fashion marš!, you are also often modeling– is this an interesting role for you along being an actress?
Now I feel honoured :-) When it comes to modeling, it became part of my life when we were promoting the movies Dom (The House) and Fair play, when I was doing interviews for various magazines and they needed some pictures of me. And that is when I found out that yes, I like it. Then I was selected for the two-year cooperation with the cosmetic brand Dermacol and that was when my contract said I was a model. That was the first time for me, because in all my contracts I am an actress or an artist. Ever since then I take it for pleasant and luxurious part of acting, because I am nicely dressed and wear a pretty make up. Of course, these shootings don’t last the whole day so I have really lovely time, but I can’t imagine doing that all the time and be only a model. It is very hard profession and it requires huge amount of patience and diligence.

Are you and fashion close?
Fashion is a fantastic matter and I enjoy it very much. Ever since I was a child I enjoyed watching fashion shows on TV and I do it untill today. But since I am an actress and I have to change into costume or rehersal dress in the theatre few times a day, I don’t have the energy to pay extreme attention to what I look like in real life. For me it is enough to go to gala events where I have to dress according to the dress code and that is where I enjoy the help of fashion designers. It is a pleasure for me to dress up in pretty and interesting attire for these occasions. Only then I feel that evening as a real celebration.

What is your dream job, except for acting? What did you want to become when you were a little child?
I think this is my dream job, so I can say I am a really lucky person. As a child I didn’t know what I wanted to do but I always felt I was attracted to the world of art. At the moment I can’t imagine being more satisfied by any other job.
When it comes to acting, do you prefer theatre, film or musical?
Theatre and movie, both of them! When I am workig with only one of them for a longer time, I miss the other one. As for the musical, I can’t really say yet, because now it is the first time for me rehersing one, so I am only learning the magic and reality of this style. But I have a feeling I will enjoy it a lot. It is The Jungle Book premiering on June 12th in Komarno. It has a wonderfull music!
Do you have a dream character?
There are characters in the classic literature I would like to play one day, but I don’t want to say it out loud or write it down, so I am not dissapointed if it doesn’t happen.I act whatever comes my way. Every character is teaching me something new. And I still have a lot to learn.
Which actors do you admire and why?
Emília Vášáryová, Martin Huba, Emil Horváth, Táňa Pauhofová, Szidi Tobias, Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, Marillon Cotillard, Venczel Vera, Eszenyi Enikő, Ónodi Eszter, Törőcsik Mari, Aňa Geislerová, Táňa Vilhelmová, Bolek Polívka. To me they are unique characters, strange figures, extraterrestrials, great actors.

In what stage is your career now and what are your dreams and goals?
I think I am in very early stage and I have so much to learn to be able to genuinely portray somebody else’s life on the stage or in the film. To have certain goals and dreams is good, but I think that for us actors there is no point to share it with public. We rely on other people very much, actor himself is never enough. And we are veeeeery sensitive and conceited. But I would really like to be in projects that have a value and mean something.
