Meet Anna Dudzińska

Preparations for FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2011 are in full swing but in the meantime, we’re going to present participants’ profiles on the FASHIONCLASH blog so that you could get to know them better. Follow FASHIONCLASH blog ‘cause from now on, each week another participant will be presented.
First in the row is a Polish fashion designer Anna Dudzińska:

What is your name? Anna Dudzińska

What is the name of your label? DUD.ZIN.SKA

Where did you study and when did you graduate? I studied at Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design in Poland and I have graduated this year

Anna's inspiration

What inspires you as a designer? I treat fashion as a form of experiment. I like to combine different subjects and materials, usually from the opposite sides ( new vs. old, beautiful vs. ugly, tasty vs. disgusting etc). But mostly I'm inspired by modern architecture and interior design including structures, non-standard materials and shapes. It gives quite an appreciable background to my projects. Furthermore I'm a big fan of avant-garde in different fields.

Who is your favorite fashion designer? Why? I'm absolute fan of Martin Margiela. His unconventional and simply novel attitude towards fashion gives me an impression that there's still something to do in this kind of art. Besides interesting clothes, he has created totally new existence by mixing fashion design with other fields of art. Altogether it gives quite unique brand with a coherent marketing background. I also admire Japanese fashion designers.

What can you bring to FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2011? Avant-garde in ready-to-wear version

Do you expect from the FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2011? First of all good fun and positive vibes. It's also an ideal moment for making new and interesting acquaintances. And last, but surely not least, it's a great occasion to promote my collection.

How did your experience with fashion started? When did you decide to be a fashion designer? Actually, I did my first fashion sketches when I was a child. Maybe it sounds banally, but from that time I wanted to become a fashion designer. And the final decision was made after I graduated in psychology. Then I staked everything on one card :)

What are your goals concerning your career? What are your ambitions? Where do you see yourself in the future? The perfect situation would be designing for some fashion houses for a while and after that expanding my own brand, preferably in Paris or London. But the most important is to go with the flow, no matter what happens.

FASHIONCLASH Fashion Procession 2011

In cooperation with the Heiligdomsvaart and ABK Maastricht FASHIONCLASH organizes a Fashion Procession, a procession where models are showing the creations of liturgical vestments in a parade through the city of Maastricht and accompanied by live music.

Designers and artists from all disciplines will participate in this unique project.
FASHIONCLASH, Maastricht's youngest event, in cooperation with Heiligdomsvaart, Maastricht's oldest event.

Heiligdomsvaart takes place once in 7 year. This year the 54th edition will take place. The first went through Maastricht in 1391, the last in 2004. In a sanctuary in a procession relics (clothing, objects or remains) of the saints are presented to the people. Heiligdomsvaart Maastricht is the most famous in the Netherlands and attracts many visitors. A rich cultural program of which this year FASHIONCLASH Fashion Procession is a component is composed around the event.
For more info: http://www.heiligdomsvaartmaastricht.nl

The assignment: The liturgical garments and textiles are the starting point for the creations/ designs.

In the treasuries of the great Roman Catholic churches in Maastricht beautiful textiles collections are stored and collected over the centuries. Especially for the participants in this project the church will reveal these treasures so they can serve as inspiration.

Examples include the models of the chasubles, with various fashions (so-called violin casket from Rich Roman life or beautiful Art Deco chasubles). Or the different meanings of the colours of the liturgical clothing (e.g. yellow for Easter and purple for Advent and fasting).

The Fashion Procession is presented on Sunday, June 5th (shopping Sunday) via a route through the city of Maastricht.  In addition, the creations (or a part of the creations) will be presented on the catwalk (during the opening night) and in the exposition of the multidisciplinary fashion event FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2011 (10 to June 12).

Images from the lecture/tour.
Historian Jac van den Boogaard gave a lecture / tour around the textiles in the Roman Catholic Church, a special kick-off of the assignment of this project. 

FASHIONCLASH Fashion Procession is made possible by Hogeschool Zuyd and BV Limburg / Zicht op Maastricht.
