Kati Venczel

  Kati Venczel, award winning fashion designer, already has a reputation in the lingerie & beachwear industry as one of the top designers for European fashion lingerie brand, Jolidon™ and the Head Designer of Jolidon Group’s luxury brand Prelude™.

  Foundation is important: finishing magna-cum-laude from one of the best art schools in Eastern Europe, Kati kick-started her career at the young startup, Jolidon™. As creative fashion designer, Kati primarily focused on innovative fine design and detailing. And the accolades for Kati’s work began to flow in!

  Over the next 15 years, Kati’s participation in the most essential fashion shows and exhibitions won her copious awards and sought after recognitions:

           • "The jury and the audience came to the same conclusion for the first time this session: Prélude was named the winner of the Ultra-Gourmandise Award and the Lingerie Industry Prize.” - 2009 ULTRA LINGERIE, Paris

           • “Double prize and standing ovation for Prélude who has won the Grand Prix Ultra Lingerie 2009 and the Public Prize, with a garment all about movement and full of surprises…! To play the temptress, the fashion lingerie becomes glutton and Ultra Lingerie this year definitely was a blissful crunchy moment." - 2009 ULTRA LINGERIE, Paris

           • "A jury of 17 key players from the lingerie and fashion industry in a “blind” vote elected the Ultra Lingerie Award winners: The “Award for Adventurous use of Materials” for the most spectacular work with fabric went to JOLIDON and SOPHIE HALLETTE for a model inspired by The Lady of the Camellias." - 2006 ULTRA LINGERIE, Paris

  Throughout this phase, Kati worked intimately in collaboration with luxury fabric supliers as Sophie Hallette, Solstiss, Dentelles Desseilles, Swarovski, E. Boselli, Ricamificio Junior, Ricamificio Vittorio Vanoni, Ricamificio Paolo and many others in creating award-winning designs, the highest quality swimwear and luxury lingerie.

  Kati always included herself in the process of creative support for production and catalogues - styling, accessories, make-up, hair-style - and artistic innovation for different fashion shows, presentations, catwalks, casting, fitting, and directing.

  "With her fresh and innovative style Kati’s versatile collections combine hue and design with an inimitable, sexy flair. Her use of the finest italian embroideries and the airiest French Chantilly and Leavers laces in a tantalizing range of colors with innovative cuts and handmade details makes her intricate lingerie designs exclusive, and elegant, and desirable."
