Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland Off Out Of Schedule A/W 2011 in Łódź: Maldoror

Maldoror Off Out Łódź Fashion Week AW 2011 by Fawn Carr
Maldoror A/W 2011 by Fawn Carr.

The hissing sighs of Diamandas Galas provided the musical backdrop to this edgy show from Maldoror by Grzegorz Matląg, which featured street cast models who I had seen around already in the audience at Fashion Week Poland - a refreshing change from the same old faces on every catwalk. Black outfits opened the show, high necked and lacy for both men and women, culminating in a butt revealing suit made entirely of net. Grzegorz Matląg works with recycled materials, his aim being to challenge the wearer "to create their own look without the cultural restraints and defects of consumerism." High ideals indeed, and ones which I of course heartily applaud.
