Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland A/W 2011 in Łódź: Joanna Klimas

Joanna Klimas was one of the first wave of modern designers to make a splash in Poland, but her brand of mixed up minimalism didn't really do it for me. Shown on Sunday 8th May at Expo.

Joanna Klimas by Alison Day.

Joanna Klimas has had an interesting career to date: initially trained as a psychologist before turning to fashion a decade later. She was one of the first Polish designers to embrace a new minimalism in the 1990s, generic appearing in the first issue of Polish Elle. In 2001 she began to design costumes for the opera but returned to fashion design recently.
