The lion roars – 6.3.2004

On the waves of fashion – 17.3.2004
Prague is not really a center of haute couture, but one can still find local fashion brands that stand out. Taiza is one, and during the introduction of its new collection by designer Kateřina Baloun (replacing Osmany Laffita), the president’s wife appeared, and received a donation for her foundation.

VIP links – 11.3.2004
The British Chamber of Commerce hosted another business mixer, this time at the “top level”. The first executive mixer took place in Mlýnec restaurant, and the chamber hopes that such events – which it plans to organize several times a year – will bring together Prague’s business elite.
