Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland A/W 2011 in Łódź: Dawid Tomaszewski

Polish born, British and Berlin educated Dawid Tomaszewski took pole position after The Golden Thread awards on Friday 6th May at Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland. It was a beautiful, well styled collection.

Dawid Tomaszewski is the prodigal son who got away… a Polish boy who studied internationally, sickness including at the London College of Fashion, order before settling in Berlin where he started his own name label in 2008 to much acclaim. For Friday’s finale he showed directly after The Golden Thread awards at Fashion Week Poland, and it was a salient reminder of what exactly is expected from world class fashion design.

Strobe lights and the soft patter of rainfall were overlaid by an increasingly frantic piano as models with neat up dos and side fringes swept onto the catwalk. This was a tightly edited collection that encompassed beautifully fitted dresses with well placed ruffles, high waisted pleated tweed skirts, huge cowl necked woven knits and crystal encrusted bodices. Of particular acclaim was a bodiced body topped with a shimmering gauze dress. Earthy woollens gave way to jade green silk and subtlety dip dyed floating gowns worthy of the red carpet. It was an incredibly attractive and polished collection that had more than a hint of classic British design. There was much here for Polish fashion designers to aspire to, although I am hoping the fur arms were not real.

    Beautiful clothes, I love that rich teal paired with the tweed like material. and the simplicity of the long dresses, so elegant. Shame about the fur though. Wish I had been around to have a chance to illustrate it!
