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.

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.

Marly van Lipzig
Eindhoven is full of energy this week as Dutch Design Week seems to have taken over the city. FASHIONCLASH loves to visit  DDW because each year we find some amazing young talents and we love it even more when we bump into installations and presentations by FASHIONCLASH participants. Many of them are to be found in the Etalageroute DDW (shopping window route)   through the city: Elvira 't Hart, Annemarije van Harten, Nawie Kuiper, Mirte Engelhard, I am Nold (Natalie de Koning), Lidewij Corstiaans, de l’eefstijl, Marije de Haan, Joelle Boers and so on.
You can find them also in the rest of the program, like Josine Heuts at Modebelofte 2012 or at ABKM stand.

Niek Pulles (HEYNIEK) is responsible for the stunning look and feel of Modebelofte 2012 exhibition.
