Polish designers worth knowing !!

I love quality products anything from home accessories to shoes so it makes me really proud that there are so many quality brands and products that are now available to choose from my home country. I am planning on making a post about most amazing beauty products from Poland but today I want to introduce You to some of my favourite fashion names.
Most of the designers that are known on Polish market started their businesses when I was growing up. They slowly became recognised and known for their uniqueness and attention to details. I am fully aware of the fact that their designs will not be available to everyone. But as You might have guessed already if You are following my blog from the beginning, I believe less is more and I would rather have one quality piece than ten average ones that I will put in the charity bag in a short space of time !

So that is what I have for You:

1. Gosia Baczynska

My personal number one by long way. I have admired her work for many years and when I had to decide on my wedding dress she was my safety blanket. I love her laces and very high quality fabrics. My wedding dress was made from wool so highly selected it shined. She is amazing in making spectacular, evening gowns that would play the part in most red carpets around the world. Few years ago she was the first Polish designer to show her work during Paris Fashion Week something that is a huge achievement most designers can only dream off.

2. Lukasz Jemiol

Very recent discovery for me but equally special as the first one. I had a chance to visit his boutique during my visit to Poland and I loved almost everything. What surprised me the most was the quality of the fabrics and the intensity of the colours. Available now online, it is a destination for more relaxed, everyday fashion.

3. Look-Book

Although I do not own anything from this brand, when I look on their website I want almost everything. Very wearable pieces, especially dresses with bohemian theme. Probably, the cheapest (remember to shop the sale) and the most wearable out of all clothing brands featured here. I tried to find more information about the faces behind the brand but there is limited info out there.

4. La Mania

Probably the most well-known Polish brand that You can get in Harrods and Net-A-Porter. Most of the pieces are slightly too formal for me but the quality of the fabrics is second to none. La Mania was started by spectacular businesswoman Joanna Przetakiewicz who is the best ambassador of her own brand. La Mania dresses are already popular amongst the stars and celebrities around the word.

5. Mokobelle

The most unique of brands creating beautiful jewellery for everyday use. They became famous for unusual combinations of precious metals and stones. Most known for their bracelets that You can create as You like. Very affordable for the quality their offer and definitely worth checking out.

That is mine personal favourite list. I wanted to include brands with the Polish heritage that will stand the test on the international market. From my personal experience all of the brands should be able to ship internationally ! Have I missed anything ?

Thanks for stopping by !!

It means a lot… xx

Wedding day

I am not a girl who dreamed about getting married since my childhood years. When I met my future husband we started building our relationship from scratch and it slowly developed into livelong partnership. After nine years together we decided it is a time to tie a knot and I would not change a thing.

My husband contacted truly amazing wedding planning agency Perfect Day and they helped us organising our day. The whole credit should go to Monika the wedding planner from that agency. We got married in Poland in beautiful city of Krakow. It was a small church wedding with our nearest family and friends. I still remember the happiness of the day and how beautiful and sunny it was. We had our reception in the most intimate and private hotel Copernicus with every detail planned to perfection. Everyone that was invited to the wedding stayed overnight with us so we could celebrate together.

Wedding planning agency was a true live saver. As we both work full-time and the wedding was taking place in Poland it took some organisation and team effort to put everything in place but what we got in return is far more valuable… Beautiful memories and pictures that make us truly happy.

Be our wedding guest !!!

My eighty year old grandma is my best friend. I think she was more stressed that me as if it was her own wedding day…

With my proud dad… This beautiful dress I am wearing is by Polish fashion designer Gosia Baczynska. She is known for her unusual fabrics, beautiful laces and visible cuts.

I was really pleased with my choice and I still stand by my decision. My dress was made out of wool which is seems like a strange choice for a wedding dress. But it did work !

As I mention before the wedding reception took place in the beautiful Copernicus Hotel. We stayed there all weekend I cannot fault anything. It makes me truly proud to have that quality of service in my home country !

I cannot imagine anybody else taking our wedding pictures. They are everything and more I could have asked for.

I hope You enjoyed reading this post as much I have enjoyed preparing it !
