David Kollar, born in Slovakia arrived in Canada with his mother and sister at a young age. In the early years, he started to become interested in streetwear by purchasing and selling exclusive products he bought online. When he was in high school he developed into the role of a stylist for many of his friends where he made a name for himself and learned skills on the way. Building on those skills, he took it upon himself to utilize the Internet to learn everything he could about the industry and manufacturing. At 16 he created his first brand, which specialized in silk-screened shirts. With momentum on his side he decided it was time to evolve into the world of cut and sew. This method was more fulfilling to him as he could control every aspect of the production and creative process. In doing so he was able to create a physical extension of himself, which is reflected in the use of dark colors, unique methods of construction and fabric selection. In the last few years the brand has received a warm welcome in the industry, which is an extremely rewarding feeling as it is a representation of his life and the experiences that have led to this point.
I actually enjoyed the runway show by @KOLLARCLOTHING, surprisingly this was one of the show that definitely surprised me! Starting off with the unique presentation at the begin of the show. This collection by David contained rebellions looks to a small twist of classiness. What made this show perfect was the background display of the fresh flowers dying and then slowly gain by life. It was like ironic representation of how things (even rebellious looks) can show grow on you.
By the end of the show, my perspective definitely changed and really enjoyed the show (as well as all the pieces showcased in the collection).
