Lodz, Poland- The old school tailoring and love of perfect craftsmanship are the strongest points of the developing designer Waleria Tokarzewska-Karasiewicz.
Having a strong start with the first collection presented this time the work developed with a stronger point of view. One can find inspirations in haute couture by designers like Christian Lacroix. The designer has total control of the creative process with this collection so one can see heavy fabrics used to create rich, luxurious pieces. There’s a lot of hand-made embroideries and a lot of checks and flowers. The details are but together to perfection to the last button sewed.
The collection is mainly wool dresses, jumpsuits, coats, tunics, skirts with some foe furs and sequins. There’s some playing with textures visible for autumn. The coats are like from a grandmothers closet creating the childlike dress up fantasies. The vibe of the collection is majestic, yet with a flair of oriental mystery.
A fine selection of color is used with eye-catching mixture of fuchsia, greens, reds, blues, purples, even gold and off course black. The stakes are higher with each collection leaving everybody wondering what will be next?
