We just got a crush on the knitwear autumn-winter collection of one of the most interesting polish fashion designers – Anna Dudzinska.
Based in Poland, DUDZINSKA collections may be described as a street style avant-garde and her sign of recognition are hand knitted, woolen clothes. She’s inspired by modern architecture and interior design and those subjects could be found in her works.
She’s a semi finalist of the MUUSE’s most promising designer by Vogue Talents, Fashion Designers Awards in Warsaw and OFF Fashion, Kielce, both in Poland. DUDZINSKA has taken part in huge fashion events such as the Fashion Week Poland, Fashionclash in Netherlands, CPD Signatures in Germany.
NATURAL THING, aw2016
Chill, harsh, severe climate of Scandinavia on the one hand, and warm, soft, wrapping fabrics and forms – on the other. In her latest collection of hand-knitted clothing, Anna Dudzinska works with contradictions, that, all in all, make up a harmonious whole in the spirit of applied avant-garde – the designer’s hallmark.
The NATURAL THING collection clearly oscillates between organic and natural. Colours of the earth (beiges, greys, white and black), natural fabrics (warm Australian wool, cotton, soft silk and mohair, wools with alpaca), as well as the fascination with textures occurring in the world of nature have been reflected in the designs of jumpers, skirts and shawls.
The collection is based on oversized, overscaled fashion that forms some sort of a safe shelter for the human body. Three-dimensional embellishments that boldly encounter the stern surrounding resemble the irregular cocoons of silkworms or the delicate, yet resistant spiders’ webs. Of particular interest are also the very thick seams, which form dense “stony” structures.
All patterns from the aw2016 collection are hand-made, according to the highest standards of Polish craft, with care for every detail. Anna Dudzinska, who pays great attention to slow fashion and fair trade, has used in her designs solely high-quality, natural fabrics obtained with respect for employment and environmental rights.
