Viktoria MARCHEV

Black Sheep


new york / united states

Viktoria Marchev (formerly known as Viktoria Tisza), Hungarian fashion designer launched her brand mainly focusing on women’s swimwear. Since 2014 she has been experimenting with new technologies and she has created molded pieces of silicone rubber, a versatile material that supports her sci-fi ambience concepts. The technology developed and the pieces created besides being visually pleasing, waterproof and enduring are highly eco-friendly, as there is no waste produced during the creative process and keeping them clean hardly needs water and chemicals. In her previous collection she upgraded the technology by injecting water between layers of silicone to create the 'Splash' effect. With each and every collection she stretches her boundaries to lift silicone art to a new level.

Her designs have been featured in British Vogue, Vogue China, Vogue Italia, Glamour UK, Marie Claire UK, Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam, ELLE Ukraine. Her pieces have been worn by Billy Porter, actor, Karolina Wallace, singer, Bridget Malcolm, supermodel. In 2015 Not Just A Label selected her to its Black Sheep category of innovative designers upon her collection CLONES. In 2019 she was awarded with a sponsorship from the Council of Aspiring American Fashion Designers (CAAFD) to showcase her upcoming 4 collections in consecutive seasons at New York Fashion Week, selected upon her collection SPLASH, which she had previously showcased at NYFW in September, 2018. In 2021 she received the Silver Award from the A'Design Award and Competition in the category of Fashion, Apparel and Garment Design for her collection S/S2019 'SPLASH' made entirely of silicone rubber. In 2022 The United Nations (UN) selected her to be a member of their Sustainable Development Conscious Fashion and Lifestyle Network.

Since 2016 she has presented her designs on the runway at International Fashion Weeks, including Vancouver Fashion Week (2016-2018), New York Fashion Week (2018, 2019), Paris Fashion Week (2022), San Francisco Fashion Community Week (2018, 2022) and an exhibition at London Fashion Week (2018).
