Independent and Fashionable

“Independent and Fashionable” is a short film about the Polish women fashion and its transformation from before the World War One until 1939. The film was created as a part of the “Fashionable in Independence” exhibition, where recreated garments of the early 20th century were presented, together with authentic fashion accessories and fashion journals as well as reprints of archival photographs. Garments were recreated for the exhibition in the Nomina Rosae Atelier for Historical Garments Recreation and Costumes.
