The TALABAYA story is a story of two seemingly different women: a fashion designer and a client with a very specific request. They met in 2015 as Lucie was moving to Saudi Arabia, and needed to update her Brussels-styled wardrobe with some modest fashion pieces. Determined to master also this fashion challenge, Lucie contacted a Prague-based fashion designer, Mirka Talavaskova. Mirka designed a piece of clothing that combined the Middle Eastern fashion with the European minimalist style.
And the first TALABAYA was created.
This collaboration incited Mirka’s curitosity; she has always been attracted to different cultures. Mirka watched Lucie traveling around the Arabian Gulf while wearing her TALABAYA creations, and imagined a collection that combines the elegance of Arab women and luxury materials with European details. And then an invitation came to the first modest fashion event in Dubai.
