While Prague can't yet compete with the world famous capitals of
fashion, its Prague Fashion Week always attracts a lot of attention
from the media and the public. Over 30 design houses presented
their work at the event, including a number of foreign brands.
The gala launching of the 7th annual Fashion Week took place at
the residence of Prague's Lord Mayor.

At the benefit evening for Konto Bariéry foundation, a charity organization for
handicapped people, a unique piano Petrof III Opus č. 595 000 was sold at auction
for over CZK 2.8 million to an undisclosed buyer. The piano was produced specially
to celebrate 140 years of the Petrof company. A performance by a number of great
musicians and actors preceded the auction.
