About Katerina Lankova Haute Couture
Katerina Lankova grew up in communist Czechoslovakia. After graduating from the Textile and Manufacture School of Design in Liberec, she moved to London. She never planned to move to US, but after three years in Prague and working a corporate job, a coincidence brought her to Aspen CO. Her passion for skiing led her to design a pair of ski pants. She likes the challenge of designing highly technical skiwear; yet finds it more fun ever since she found sourcing and inspiration in Schoeller's materials. She currently resides in New York City where she constantly seeks influence and experiences to drive her design creations.
