Bc. et Bc. Petra Vicianová - styler
Petra was born in Brno. She studied here the subject „Handmade Art Textile Processing“ at the school of applied arts. Slowly she began to get acquainted with textile and its manufacturing and finishing process. The whole process fascinated her. And she realized that only a few people are interested in textiles, even though we are in contact with them every day.
After finishing secondary school, she decided to continue studying at the Faculty of Philosophy, where she chose the field „Interactive Media Theory“. The study of this subject expanded the spectrum of her knowledge, from which she draws up to this day. In this study corse she also completed a study stay in Finland. But during her theoretical studies she felt that she missed the craft and the experience of how the work was created through her hands. So she decided to go back to discovering textiles again and started studying at the University of Fine Arts in Bratislava. The textil design studio gave her space to experiment with the material and showed her other possible ways of seeing the textile.
The study stay in Denmark was crucial for her, because she became aware of the environmental impact of her projects.
"I like discovering the world in its smallest details, I get inspired by chance, the process itself is important to me and I always try to find the most rational priorities, both in my work and in my life."
For Ahinsa shoes® Petra created an individual shoe design. The motif is applied to the fabric using screen printing. Only then is the shoe made of this fabric. Shoe making takes into account the design of each piece used, as Petra designed it, to match the other parts of the shoe. Each shoe is so totally original.
