Kristína Šipulová Studio Kristína Šipulová, founded in 2018 focuses on slow pace fashion with fewer pieces being produced with patience, investment of time in production and interdisciplinary collaborations. Taking inspirations from people who are dedicated to craft techniques and to bring these fascinations into the modern world to enrich our everyday life is the main vision of the studio. With the help of local craftswomen, each garment is built from the yarn. The garments are versatile and made to last for generations. Kristína’s work is the intersection of revival of handweaving and delicacy in the making of textiles. Surrounded by rich Slovak’s textile heritage, she has also taken inspirations from different countries where she has lived. Kristína has been teaching at International Fashion Academy IFA Paris. Her work was exhibited during Milan Design Week, London Design Week and Paris Design Week 2019. Kristína Šipulová is stocked at Rajón and Prelude.store
