As part of her studies, Andrea has prepared her own final "Bohemia" collection of dresses drawing from Czech folklore, sustainability and upcycling. Part of this collection also includes beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand and Preciosa crystals.
According to Andrea, the basic prerequisite for the sustainability of the fashion world lies in a return to local production. Andrea has journeyed back with her collection. Back to her roots and the traditions associated with the countryside of East Bohemia, a former significant textile producer, where she comes from and which serves her as a source of infinite inspiration. The concept for the final collection is mainly based in the use of rejected or previously used materials, products with a tradition, which Czech seed beads undoubtedly have, and furthermore the use of natural processes in fabric dying. The clothing is distinguished by a powdery or even dreamy color pallet acquired from using dyes from avocado seeds acquired in a public collection in the Czech Republic and in London or from petals from the garden of Andrea's parents and adornments consisting of detailed hand embroidery, preserved dried flowers or PRECIOSA seed beads or crystals. "Dying with avocado invokes red clouds.“ says Andrea. Therefore, she has chosen imitation pearls, fire polished beads and seed beads in the color shades of sunrise and sunset, such as white, off white and ivory and also ranging from delicate red through to rich scarlet.
