I am an independent Czech designer Jana Hodanová and I perfom under my brand LAHO. I design and create costumes and fashion couture.

Individual costume design across history and styles

I provide consultancy, stylings in aesthetics, design and creation.

Original couture costumes takes on average 1 – 2 months from order confirmation to produce a dress. In urgent situations a gown can be made in less time of course.

Sustainable collections

I offer some original designs for purchase in my online boutique www.laho.cz.

Orders are shipped worldwide. I strive to make them beautiful in both appearance and provenance. The materials I work with are carefully selected. Natural silks and brocades are sourced directly from the producers and care is taken to ensure that those behind the production are fairly rewarded. Some textiles are woven to order in small family-run businesses and weaving mills.

LAHO’s added value includes complete local ethical production from design to high-end tailoring in small limited editions. Designs usually include minor tailoring and are made individually only after ordering. The customer buys a value model that fits and avoids overproduction. Production time is approximately 2 weeks.

I rent some pieces for photo shoots, video shoots, or social events.
