  • Description

    Poland is not a country the fashion-conscious would expect to provide a lead in the "rag trade", but the latest collection by "Moda Polska", the state fashion house, proves Poland can certainly hold its own with west Europe.

    The Polish designers have borrowed heavily from the slinky 'fifties look which has been very much to the fore in the last few months, but they've given the clothes their own distinctive touches, creating a genuinely individual look.

    The collection shown in Warsaw recently was for Autumn and Winter and the coats were all immensely practical for a cold country, as well as being very elegant. Some were lined throughout with sumptuous fur, and there were generous fur trimmings on collars and cuffs.

    The dresses were hemmed well below the knee, mostly mid-calf, and those for special occasions were made of clingy, shiny materials - the sort of fabrics which move easily with the body.

    "Moda Polska" which translates as "Polish Fashion", has been in business for sixteen years, acting as what the Poles describe as a "fashion ambassador". It cooperates with its East European neighbours, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, the USSR, East Germany and Rumania. And it also has trade links with France, Great Britain, Switzerland, Sweden and Japan.

    Twice a year, in Winter and Autumn, "Moda Polska" presents its leading collections at the Leipzig International Fair. Thirteen fashion houses are already being operated by the House in Poland and by the end of next year there are plans for a further nineteen.
