“Tribal Spirit is a show where contemporary jewellery by Radek Szwed, inspired by tribal motifs, clashed with the simplicity and deconstruction of the clothing by Dvorus. It is our vision of a contemporary Maasai girl,” Magdalena Trzaskowska summed up.

Magdalena Arłukiewicz’s “tempting” collection was inspired by traditional 14th and 15th cent. Burgundy clothing styles. Fascinated with this mediaeval vision, Aleksander Gliwiński came up with silver and amber ornaments impressive in their size and creativity.

Inspired by the Azeri national dress, the Sevgilim collection was surprising in its joyfully juicy colours and sophisticated form which emphasised femininity. It was perfectly accessorised by Danka Czapnik’s jewellery: delicate, filigree and colourful.

The duo of Emilia Jankowska & Marcin Tomaszewski found their inspiration in the shape of seashells, the smell of the sea and the colour of seawater. In the clothing, it was reflected by the lightness and airiness of the fabrics and cuts, in the jewellery – by the handbags made of large natural seashells.

In line with its name, this collection was as colourful as the spring and bursting with freshness. Fresh Like Spring features ready-to-wear daily fashion proposals addressed to young women who value the casual style and dare to wear fairyland jewellery.
