Zdenka Arko started
her own brand of dancewear back in 1985. However she had been accumulating
experience in dress design and dressmaking for a long time before this.
It was during her
competitive dance career that Zdenka began designing her own dresses. They
attracted a great deal of attention and were noted for their style and
flare. She soon turned to the new challenge of designing dresses for other
dancers as well.
Being based in
London, the heart of Dancesport dancing, Zdenka has had the opportunity to
design dresses for many top class professional Standard and Latin American
dancers from around the world. She is proud to design dresses for a number
of World Championships finalists as well as the World Professional
Champions in both Standard and Latin American dance.
The company now
employs a dedicated team of skilled designers, pattern cutters and
dressmakers, but Zdenka remains fully involved, bringing her expertise to
bear at every stage of the design process. The reputation of the Zdenka
Arko DanceSport Fashion House for creating stylish dresses that are
distinctive and exclusive is now well established worldwide.
