I would like to invite you into my world, full of timeless beauty and sensual femininity. My projects are searching for sensual comfort and are fascinated in what is unique. Handicraft is my passion, mission and a way of life. I create unique, luxury, sensual, handmade sweaters. My projects are characterized by a unique design and are soft in touch. They should not only look beautiful and be warm, but also wrap a person with an extraordinary softness thanks to the highest quality crewels, a mixture of virgin wool, alpaca, kashmir or silk mohair. The quality of my sweaters is also a unique lightness which makes wearing them a spectacularly pleasant experience. I make and design all the models myself, the production process for some of them takes even more than a hundred hours of manual work. Some of the models have an evening character and along with proper accessories and beautiful jewelry create a formal style. Except for working on my own collection, I am also a lecturer of art craft design and clothing design in the International School of Costume and Clothing Design. While looking for my own career path, I gained experience working for such brands as: Zień, La Mania, Simple, 303 Avenue. For me, timeless character, femininity and quality have always been the determinants of what is the best in fashion.

Natalia Siebuła has been working in Poland since 2009, creating her own brand with the aim of designing elegant and feminine clothing. Simple forms with limited spectrum of colors are to create a surrounding for the clients’ individuality. Natalia tries to continue the fading tradition of dressmaking, so most of her models are sewn individually for potential owners. An inspiration for creating the brand’s philosophy is a subtle observation of the phenomenons in art and society throughout the time. Since 2016, Natalia runs her own project, focused on fashion, photography and architecture. The project is an attempt to make people accustomed to not really appreciated, pragmatic, modernistic architecture and to present the objects in a photo shooting in a shape that no-one will see again. Natalia was able to save from being forgotten Puławski Ośrodek Kultury "Dom Chemika" and Kielecki Dworzec PKS, which are undergoing major modernization.

The first big challenge for this young designer was participation in the biggest fashion event in Poland - KTW Fashion Week in Katowice, 9-12 November 2017. He presented there his author’s, debut collection along with such designers and brands as Paprocki & Brzozowski, MMC, Natasha Pavluchenko, Lidia Kalita, Bizuu, Just Paul, Marlu and Haratyk.

Armada Tomasz is a designer and a member of an artistic group Dom Mody Limanka. He operates under his own name, but he has also designed for such brands as UEG, and OdioXPieczarkowski. The collections of Armada inspired, among others, by backwardness, are in opposition to the fashion dictated by the West and copied by Polish imitators. His latest collection of unique outfits was inspired by Lodz folklore as well as wedding and wedding reception wear. Armada uses the textile elements characteristic for present-day Poland. He complements them with author’s patterns, prints, fabrics and knitwear. Through inflating the stereotypes and xenophobia fears he presents Polish esthetics in exotic and exaggerated form - contrasting with the local character. Various collections are composed of clothing parodies, range characteristic of streetwear and familiar equivalents of "haute couture" - full of patchwork and experimental constructions. The works of Tomasz Armada are in opposition to the escalating aggression and discrimination on the grounds of nationalism and homophobia.

A blow of fresh wind… Vicher is a woman, or, in fact, they are Sisters. The brand was created thanks to the sisterly friendship, a collage of events and experiences, and mostly thanks to the passion and love for fashion and art. Vicher is created by two sisters - Inez and Kasia. Inez graduated Polish-French Ph.D. course as well as Clothing Design at the Academy of Art in Lodz. Fashion has always been her love. Kasia has been in the design industry for many years - she is a coordinator of international events related to the design sector. Kasia graduated the Department of Clothing Design at the Academy of Art in Lodz. Vicher takes the inspiration for ints projects from the artistic bohemians, natural nonchalance and urban style. The designers wish to provide women with extraordinary clothes with comfortable forms, but also longing for freedom, natural wildness and flush of heart, expressive combinations and a clash of boho esthetics with vanguard. The starting point for each collection are fabrics with author’s illustrations, inspired by art and culture. Vicher projects also express the fascination with op-art. A group of loyal clients who are in a close relation with the brand create a community of Vicher #vichersis. The designers emphasize that the sisterly, feminine power is the most important: we understand women, because we were raised with them, we know what they crave. Unique combinations of colors in connection with contentious form and casual style as well as with the obligatory wind in the hair make the Vicher brand stand out from many other brands on the Polish fashion market and Harpers Bazaar Poland defines Richer "as a blow of fresh air" among other Polish fashion brands.
