Wicked Peacock was excited to attend Polish Designer Malgorzata Dudek’s runway show during Fashion Week in NYC. The event, held in a private photography studio in the heart of New York City’s Fashion District, was an exclusive, standing-room only affair. Dudek, dubbed the “next McQueen” by fashion insiders, showed a highly-conceptual collection with themes of power, rigidity, intricacy, unraveling and decay.
Silhouettes were structured, angular and form-fiting with sharp edges and intricate details. Every piece was cut-out or shredded, and materials included a mix of leather, lace and highly-textured, solid-colored fabrics. Models wore their hair in a tail-like dreadlock, creating an alien or super-human kind of look.
The show closed with the collection’s Queen, wearing futuristic sunglasses by Polish sunglass maverick, Slav Nowsad. Shoes, designed by Zack Lo, were delicate stilettos accented with fringe and spikes–totally wearable off the runway!
Dudek talks with Polish reporters after the show about her inspiration and materials.
