FASHIONCLASH at Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland

FASHIONCLASH was invited to attend the international conference that was organized in connection to Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland in Łódź. The conference was held in the amazing Andel's Hotel in Łódź that is located in the Manufactura neighbourhood, a huge former industrial complex. The opening of the Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland also took place at the Andel's hotel on Thursday 24th. City of Lodz used to be the capital for Polish textile industry until the major factories closed in the 90's. In recent years the city is recovering with great initiatives like the Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland, Łódź design festival and the impressive Manufactura. Now Łódź is the place to be and is the avant-garde cultural capital of Poland.

Yes, Polish fashion is emerging, there is room for improvement but there is loads of potential in Polish fashion scene. The international conference 'Promotion of Polish Fashion Industry on the International Market' gave more insight in the general development and possibilities of the Polish fashion industry.

FASHIONCLASH has also experience with Polish designers.
Each year FASHIONCLASH receives strong applications from Polish designers and it was a pleasure to see some of them in the program. FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2012 participants Kamila Gawronska-Kasperska and Agnieszka Natasza Splewińska showed their collections. We hope that more Polish designers will apply for FASHIONCLASH Maastricht.
FC team at the conference
The schedule offers a broad and rather full program with shows from established and 'celebrities' designers, emerging talents, Out off schedule program, showrooms, young fashion photographers exhibition and parties.

We have to mention and thank the initiators of the conference and the fashion week for the warm hospitality and good organization.
We had great time in Łódź.
