The collection was initially inspired by an opening scene from „Nothing Personal” – a movie by Ursula Antoniak. In the scene a woman leaves her scent on the linen in the stranger’s bedroom. As a final touch, she leaves the fire-red lock of her hair between the sheets, just as if it was the most natural thing in the world. “Nothing personal” is, in fact, a very personal story. “Clothing as a map of human scents.” Eight outfits, each of them telling the story about a different spot on the body. Natural body fragrance, not perfumes, is still a taboo. Everyday intimacy. Every one of us leaves personal fragrance traces, but no one really wants anybody else to follow them. Bed sheets, male’s shirt wrapped around naked body of a woman, collar, cuffs, scarf, hat, shoes – all those items serve as storage of our fragrance.
The collection consists of tops and blouses based on the organza corsages and elastic tapes put together; broad and tight stripes of fabrics entangling the upper body. This is why those parts of the silhouettes are mostly complicated, emphasising fragrances on the female body. Lower parts, on the other hand, are ephemeral and light. Transparent skirts and pants made of chiffon uncovers significant amount of the silhouette. They are light; they are the space where the sensuality meets intimacy. They invite one to tuck in, feel safe and hide from the world.

Designed outfits represent the diffusion of scents. Silhouettes, which give you the cozy and intimate feeling while close to your body, but which don’t hinder your moves. Throughout the collection I am showing the relation between the body, its fragrance and the fabric, together with the places where the scent is most often left. Since the skin was the very important inspiration, the color scheme of the collection is relating to its colors – we have nude, beige, ecru, different shades of grey, blurry pink contrasting with black additions.
Diploma collection “Nothing Personal” was shown during the semifinals of Fashion Stage at Designblok Festival’14 in Prague, Czech Republik.
