Slovak National Gallery has opened an exhibition devoted to Slovak fashion called Nech šije! (Sew Long!)
At the beginning of the year, Tatra banka became the general partner of the Slovak National Gallery, reinforcing its position as a long-term patron of the arts. We are pleased that our support facilitates the creation of valuable projects such as the newly-opened Nech šije! exhibition. Entry to exhibitions in Bratislava is free for all visitors.
This year's major project of the Slovak National Gallery is devoted to Slovak fashion in years 1945 to 1989. The exhibition called Nech šije! (Sew Long!) represents an overview of Slovak fashion production from ready-made clothes through clothing companies to fashion magazines and fashion photography. Thanks to Tatra banka’s support you can see the exhibition for free at Esterházy Palace until 20 August 2017.
“Tatra banka has very close to the promotion of fashion design. Since 2010, the Tatra banka Foundation has appreciated the work of young fashion designers by giving them the opportunity to design the dress for the Muse of the Ceremony – Adela Banášová – an exclusive model for the Art Awards ceremony. They have included – Mária Štraneková (2010), Marcel Holubec (2011), Martin Hrča (2012), Maja Božović (2013), Boris Hanečka (2014), Andrea Pojezdálová (2015) and last year Lenka Sršňová. Fashion designers also have an opportunity to succeed in the More Design grant program of the Tatra banka Foundation,” said Zuzana Böhmerová, Tatra Banka Foundation and Strategic Sponsorship Manager.
