Newest collections, young and independent fashion creators – this unique stage was started at Open’er in 2007 and has since blended in perfectly. During the 4 festival days, under a transparent tent, the zone welcomes amazing fashion shows. The line-up allows festival-goers to meet young fashion designers and see their collections. An impressive catwalk, proffesional backstage and sale stands draw the attention of trendsetters, lifestyle journalists, as well as festival attendees, for whom fashion serves as a natural way of self-expression.
Olivier Janiak, Editor in Chief of Elle Man, was the host of several discussions. During Elle Man panels, we talked to young designers about the hottest fashion topics, authenticity, truth and the role of Instagram in today’s fashion world. Robert Kupisz and Michał Rejent, the zone’s special guests, have also shared their fashion industry experience.
