Katarzyna Konieczka, born in Gdansk, Poland isLondon-based costume maker and avant garde fashion designer.
…My creations are mainly to be viewed on a stage or a catwalk. The main aim of my designs is to create an impact on the viewer and evoke feelings. The costumes are not for everyday use.
Each costume has been created as a one off, the techniques used to create them have been developed by myself, by experimenting with textiles, fabric and paint . I own all the design rights.
Each costume requires special care and each is cleaned separately from everything else according to the label.
In most cases I re- use the purchased fabric by processing or dying them, I never use fabric straight from the shop.
The main motifs in my designs are asymmetry, destruction, dramatism, macabre. All costumes have been hand made myself.
