From fashion to illustration
Back in 2004, Tereza moved to England to seek new adventures. She didn’t know exactly what she was going to do, but started out working in catering. Later, her work as a shop assistant at H&M in Covent Garden sparked her interest for fashion. She decided to study something creative and went to Central St. Martin’s College where she chose illustration as her main subject. Once back in Prague, she started Pinwheels – the fashion brand.
– I was really interested in fashion, but always felt something was missing. Since books are the most important things in my life, I decided to switch focus. I changed my brand from fashion to publishing. The great success for Pinwheels came when we published the book “The Long Journey”, by the world-renowned children’s author Petr Horáček. It was his first book written in the Czech language, says Tereza.
