Suzan Dlouhy, designs ready-to-wear, custom-made costumes and has been commissioned for film, dance, opera, burlesque and music videos under the name SZN. SZN is an simplification of Suzan’s first name and reflects how her production process seeks to find the most simplified way to make something. SZN designs for people interested in re-appropriation, process-driven design and lifestyle-based practices. Suzan lets material use dictate the direction of each item, whether it’s finding a way to repurpose, upcycle or recycle a textile.
