Czech Fashion and Design Weekend in Brussels

by Michaela

4th edition of the Czech Fashion and Design Weekend organised by the Czech Center Brussels in cooperation with the Representation of Southern Moravian Region and Pilsen Region, took place the first weekend of March 2016 in the Pilsen House in Brussels. During the event, the inhabitants of Brussels had an opportunity to discover and buy some original fashion and cosmetic products, accessories, jewelery or home decoration made by Czech designers. 

I had a chance to take part in the event and let people discover some of 1001 Voyages Gourmands’ baked goods. It  was a very pleasant event and here are some pictures.

What can all be done from porcelain?! Stehlík design presented cool white porcelain brooches in the origami style, stylish porcelain bow ties, necklaces and earrings. I was tempted by their cups specially designed to fit in your nose while drinking. 🙂

Pokojík is a concept store from Brno, that presented a selection of fashionable clothes, nice jewelery, cosmetic products, home decoration as well as good quality chocolate!

SRNA from Brno gives second life to bottles and jars. They cut the glass using a fascinating method of glass cracking that the guys demonstrated several times to the visitors. As a result, they offer design vases, carafe or bowls.

And now something about the food! 🙂

Probably the most favorite from 1001 Voyages Gourmands’ baked goodies was a Czech spice cake with chocolate and coconut, chocolate-banana cake, beetroot brownies, and from salty things vegetarian samosas, quiche with cherry tomatoes mozzarella and gruyère and courgette and goat cheese quiche.

For each day, I did different muffins: speculoos muffins, banana muffins made with the recipe for banana bread and I added some bio chocolate spread. I elaborated two new recipes for muffins: lighter lemon poppy seed muffins (with Greek yogurt replacing some butter) and apple-calvados muffins with cardamom and cinnamon

Argentinian Alfajores with dulce de leche or pumpkin oatmeal cookies with cranberries and white chocolate chunks were present too!

And what did I bring home?

Akari skirt – I was hesitating between one with a pattern of cloudy sky and a simple green one. The green one won at the end! 🙂

I discovered some tasty good quality 73% dark chocolate Ajala in Pokojík – made according to the traditional Maya recipe, using the precious cocoa been called Criollo.

Then I felt in love with the smell of Slovakian handmade face oils, still in Pokojík. I got one for myself and one as a present for my mum.

And from my neighbours SRNA, I got some glass bowls that I am using for table candles and a small and cute vase made from Orangina bottle. 😉
