Fashion Stage 2022
The Fashion Stage is an inseparable part of the Open'er program and during this year's edition we have prepared something that has never happened before! The transparent tent will turn into a space whose main theme will be the idea of upcycling! We invited young creators of the Polish fashion scene who, thanks to their designs, give clothes a second life.
During the four festival days, we will make it possible to get to know the invited exhibitors. Their projects can be seen in specially prepared showrooms and at the impressive catwalk. This year, the Fashion Stage program will be enriched with upcycling workshops in which all festival goers will be able to participate. The end result will be decorations that will enrich the interior of the tent.

I created my brand in 2016. I believe in art for people and I express it through avant-garde tailoring. I am a voice that will shout over the crowd faces illuminated by smartphone screens and will attract the eyes of at least one man.My projects are a critical fashion: I emphasize the strength and confidence of an individual trying to live responsibly in a world without divisions. I believe in an ethical celebration of life, according to my own principles. Each of my collections is a conversation with my recipient. It is a visual and tangible fragment of reality that connects all the people: the problem of preserving the identity of the individual in a globalized world. At the same time, my clothes are here to pay a tribute to materials, new technologies and conscious craftsmanship. I create clothes that are ready for the future: its forms create a code that makes it easier to function in everyday life, but also allows the manifestation of the ego. This code is intended to be a sign of rationality, discouraging overproduction and excessive consumption. Modernity is behind us – the future is happening here and now.
Naked is liberty, experimenting and freedom to express yourself through clothes.
Upcycling is a conscious choice, giving clothes a second life with love for our planet and environment.
Design is originality and uniqueness, our clothes are one of a kind, we do nothing twice.
We are a conscious brand, we have a mission and faith that upcycling is the future of fashion - this is what we strive for. We are the future. Join us, join Naked Upcycling Design.
