Vlasta is an accomplished designer, maker, tailor and milliner. Passionate about art, design and couture, designer Vlasta Collu was born and raised in the Slovak Republic and was trained from a young age in couture tailoring and millinery by her talented grandmother. Studying mathematics at Comenius University combined with studies at London College of Fashion has given Vlasta an insight into developing flawless silhouettes and precise cuts.
Her millinery work has been influenced by a positive critique and direction from Marie O’Regan and training by Ian Bennet. Her self-titled label specialises in luxurious evening and bridalwear, inspired by the elegance of the 1930’s – see her website www.vlastacollu.com.
Vlasta uses these expert skills to teach our Couture and Lingerie courses.
