Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland A/W 2011 in Łódź: Berenika Czarnota

I absolutely adored the bold knitwear by Berenika Czarnota, shown as part of Designer's Avenue at Expo on Sunday 8th May 2011. More of this kind of thing please!

Having seen the cute photo in the Fashion Week Poland guide book I was most excited to see the first catwalk show back over at Expo on Sunday… Designer Berenika Czarnota did not disappoint, showing a series of fabulously inventive yet wearable knitwear in shades of grey, with highlights of lime, orange and blue. And at last there was the chance to admire some interesting styling, even if it was a tad overplayed: each model came out with a cute little wolf mask perched at a jaunty angle on her head. Calf high socks with block-heeled shoes worked especially well in tomato red.
