27th October 2011 – Fashion Philosophy Fashion Week Poland - Teresa Copilas

 This show began with men being dressed as statues, standing on tall boxes with black skirts, topless and looking very godly, certainly has been done this season in Paris by Victor and Rolf and I'm pretty sure I saw something similar in London 2 seasons ago as well, but it was a nice idea and in the cold windy weather a tanned six pack is a nice view!
The collection was set to some very 90’s music, I’m not talking about the classics either, behind the naked men was a looping film flying over the desert and the music began to sound very regal.   The designer is famous for her evening-wear and the show began with standard shapes and LBD’s as well as a few coloured pieces. 

The shorter dresses featured rouching and folding as well as many asymmetric elements and big feature bows. Some of the collection had a light feel with satin, feminine dresses with low backs and wide, knee length skirts and we even saw some puff sleeves!

A favourite outfit early on was a shorter red, pussy bow, patterned silk dress that looked almost vintage but very classy. Before featuring any prints the collection went through ‘Diors New Look’ with classic black and white two in one dresses with wide skirts and cinched waists. The prints began rather randomly with a tiny polka dot maxi and then moved through florals in bright greens, muted bronze and blue. The second half of the show was mainly chiffon maxi dresses with huge billowing skirts, rouched bodices in a variety of pop colours and a few varied necklines, some featuring off the shoulder details.

For me this collection was very samey and I never want to see another floaty maxi again but the pieces individually were stunning and very well made.
