Anna Nowak-Curyło was named winner of the main prize. With her menswear collection "Identity" she was the deserved winner of the gala.

"The collection was created from the fascination of man and the mutual dependence of individuals. I wanted to show that we can not function one without the other, successes are achieved through the help of others. My collection would not happen without people who supported me and cooperated with me. I tried to pay special attention to details and the use of new technologies, I designed backpack with a moving hologram" - says Anna Nowak-Curyło.

 Another designer that delivered a consistent collection was Monika Cieślik, who drew inspiration from make workwear. Other designers worth mentioning are Tamara Avdieieva, Oliwia Jankowska, Kordian Mędrala and Nina Sakowska.
In an evening with a varying level, men's clothing outfits stood out. Nice outfits appeared here and there, but not everyone managed to implement the core of their idea into a complete story. Sometimes, the proposals were dated. Having said this, Poland is always a good reason to visit. For years, Poland has been a country to be aware of when it comes to acquiring new talent. Not to forget to mention to encounter the beautiful city of Krakow.
FASHIONCLASH has already presented a number of talented Polish designers such as Katarzyna Dworecka (Mindless) and Sandra Stachura who are alumni from Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design.
