My Greatest Wish Is to Be Happy and Healthy. Any Other Challenge is an Easy Fight. Beata Rajská.Czech fashion industry icon. What makes her so successful? Becoming a successful designer is by far not only about fashion and tailoring. You also have to be an excellent manager, psychologist and marketing expert. With such a busy schedule, is it even possible to find time for yourself and your health? Beata is proof that yes, it is possible if you are smart about it! Beata, your models are the true embodiment of femininity, as are you. We hear of unisex fashion more and more. Do you feel that the perception of femininity has changed since you have been in fashion industry? I would not say so. There have always been women proud of and enjoying their femininity, and women who have not cared too much. I love being a woman and I love very feminine fashion, so I have attracted clients who feel the same. My clients often are decision-makers in their spheres, specialists, managers with busy timetables. However, when I ask them for a dress fitting appointment, I love how they put everything aside and come. They understand how important it is to cherish their femininity regardless of circumstances. Good quality material and a fine cut make a perfect dress; it is nearly impossible to look beautiful and feel comfortable without these two ingredients. What is your key to the timeless beauty?

do look very young and vigorous. Is the key in genetics, cosmetics, or plastic surgery? Thank you. Most of the magic is in what I send forth and what I wish. My primary wish is good health. Any other challenge is an easy fight. When you feel any pain, it reflects in your face. I do not take health for granted any more. Some of my friends are doctors, and enjoy the good care provided by the wonderful team at Moravian Premium Care. Whenever I feel troubled, there are specialists to provide advice and supervision. They are available day and night and, best of all, they provide a prevention programme. It is we strong women who often tend to bite the bullet and swallow our pain. We can tell that you have a friend / doctor on the phone ready. I admit I usually have a panic attack, and seek advice on the internet. Has your routine already spared you from a serious issue? We tend to postpone our prevention measures and examinations because we
do not want to waste time in the waiting rooms. This may however cause serious trouble. My last worry was antibodies to measles because of my little grandson’s illness. I mentioned that when talking to the girls from Moravian Premium Care during my vernissage, and everything was almost arranged for in that very moment. They had already planned preventive examination blood tests, so they came to perform that in my boutique the day after. Amazing! And will you tell us your recipe to your timeless beauty? Recipe to timeless beauty? (laughing) Feel fine! Take care of yourself, not only of your appearance. The ancient Greeks knew that, and called the harmony of a nice body and soul kalokagathia. That’s it. Thank you very much for the interview, Zuzana Klusová.
