The newst show by Paprocki and Brzozowski was definitely one of the most original fashion events. The brand’s 17th anniversary was celebrated in an extraordinary manner - in a modern art gallery - Zachęta. The white walls of the gallery featured pictures of the designers’ muses, and models played the part of live works of art.
The exposition was divided into two halls. The first comprised a photography exposition, with exactly 17 images. The pictures featured women who have played an important part in the life of the designer and inspire him for further work. These were, amongst others, Anna Dereszowska, Reni Jusis, Maja Sablewska or Anna Mucha, and each one of them wore a beautiful dress in an extraordinary scenery. The pictures were made by three skilled photographers: Marlena Bielińska, Aldona Karczmarczyk and Robert Wolański. The atmosphere of uniqueness was emphasized by Kamp’s music!

The second hall transferred us to a completely different world with 3 groups of models who presented differed creations. In the first, models wore airy, silk dresses in hues of broken white and Indian pink. The whole was complemented by gold laces. It is clear that Paprocki & Brzozowski are not afraid of experiments and have contrasted a style characteristic of Arabian princesses with the newest trends. This combination has resulted in decorated miniskirts with inflated, long, frilly sleeves which sensually slipped off the models’ arms.
The second group of models were full of black-white creations straight from the 30s. Fitting outfits, transparency, the immensity of feathers with pearl necklaces and other jewelry applications adorned the models’ slender bodies. The whole was complemented by out of the box make up referencing to pieces of one of the most remarkable artists of the twentieth century - Pablo Picasso, with the use of sheer lace. The third part of the exhibition was covered with a mirrored box, inside of which one could see a phenomenal, and at the same time “edgy” dress in leopard print locked in a cage.
The last group of models certainly charmed with their creations. The designers decided to bet on shades of amaranth, fuchsia and powder pink, which seemed to refer to the famous wedding collection by Vera Wang. Boudoir creations made of transparent tulle, with models wearing wet flocks of hair seemed like beautiful, water nymphs.
The hosts, Marcin Paprocki and Mariusz Brzozowski, took their role seriously and instead of a buzzing finale, decided to personally welcome and say goodbye to the guests by the gallery entrance.
Cisowianka Perlage, supporting the Polish fashion industry for years, once again celebrated this event with its partner designers.
