Paprocki & Brzozowski show & backstage

Polish Fashion Week; Łódź Fashion Philosophy; Official page, Facebook; Vienna International Hotels Blog

From the high ceilings of Andel’s loft suites to floating silk grazing the polished catwalk, my Łódź (Wuudge) Fashion Week experience couldn’t translate better into anything other than a light spring breeze. Oskar shepherded us to formidable seats at each show, the collections melted in the mouth, and if you can believe it, every single pair of heels fit the models’ feet. I feel that some international press members have been slightly too critical on the design & organization and too proudly sat on their high horses, and as much as I may be on my own high horse (donkey on platforms, for what authority do I have) making such remark, Łódź you please cut some slack for a young city? Sure, the theatre aspect is still yet to drop anchor, but the essence of fashion shows, the wearables, was undeniably strong. If the event has one anchor it’d be the fact that all designers have accessible ateliers that stock each piece without absurd pricetags dipped in inflated egos (save for a few). Talk about down to earth.

(Some may remember Joanna Klimas from back in October when I visited her Atelier)

  3. Awww I miss my sleeping on my ‘bed’ at the Andel’s.

    I agree, some international ‘so called’ press members shouldn’t be too critical and judgemental on the designers, where’s all the postives? For frickin sake it’s not a fashion contest.

  4. HEAR HEAR

  22. Word to yo mother (whose pottery shop I still need the address to, by the way).

    A few points worth noting:
    1. Oskar… oh fair Oskar. How I do miss being escorted, vodka coke in hand. Those were the days.
    2. Hear hear to the inadequacies of ‘so-called press’ and their all mighty high horses. Forever will the floors of overstuffed trains reign supreme, so long as there are macaroons to help soften the blow of the hard floors and orange juices prepped and ready to be spilt down painfully beautiful cream blouses.
    3. A polished catwalk is one thing that surely didn’t go unsprayed and buffed… would it be worth introducing them to the glory of that paper stuff they lie down in London? Perhaps, but the anticipation of seeing how slip-proof the perfectly fitting shoes are would be lost.

    p.s. is the merit of Fashion Week Poland not indefinitely boosted by the limitless ways of working Wuudge into a sentence?

  23. Your photographs never cease to amaze! Woweeeeeeeee! You always manage to capture beauty.
