Polish Fashion Week
Thanks PAFF for letting me get a glimpse of the atmosphere at Polish Fashion Night presented by The Polish American Fashion Foundation (PAFF) at Inglot Pro Studios in New York City. It was such and honor to be a part of this fashion night event.
Here’s a bit of info I rec’d about PAFF…. Check it out
“The Polish-American Fashion Foundation (PAFF) serves as a platform globalizing Polish fashion as a unique division, and reinforcing its integration into the industry by offering participating designers the tools, contacts and a platform to network and establish an abundance of connections within the global market focusing on the US.
Established in 2014, PAFF has rapidly become an all-inclusive trusted international springboard, focused on establishing Polish labels in the US market. Connecting designers with global buyers, media, stylists, bloggers and industry professionals to help designers gain a larger market share.
Kicking off the week long market week was the Night of Polish Fashion event held in INGLOT’s uber chic 5th floor Chelsea Market pro studio. Fashion industry elite were welcomed into the space with a stunning red carpet followed by flowing libations and light hors d’oeuvres. A DJ engulfed the packed loft in with the latest hits as each designer showcased pieces from their latest collections on models wearing shoes from sponsor, 3i. The fashion presentation wowed with colorful and intricate pieces. Each of the nine show stopping designers highlighted two looks that were uniquely creative like nothing we’ve seen before deeming Poland a force to be reckoned with.”
