Polish born Agnieszka Osipa has always been a designer who has enticed me. There is something in her elegantly handmade pieces that not only nods to Eastern European traditions and culture, but brings forth emotions of other worlds; fantasy and history combine in a most luxurious and sultry fashion. Many of her intricately embroidered pieces speak of hidden tales and unknown pasts weaved within vast Norwegian legends, European folklore and tenacious women. With such a presence, it is not hard to understand why so many photographers from around the world have aspired to work with Agnieszka Osipa to revere her astounding couture wear.
With this comes one of my most favoured beauties when regarding Osipa’s work; The ability to transcend each of her pieces into something even more beyond its avant-garde form, drenched in the old legends and Eastern folklore, allowing the photographer at hand to take Osipa’s work to a new level. Building layers upon her foundations of beauty – already strong in their own right – each worthy photographer creates a second layer to each of Osipa’s unique couture. It is astounding how her work is continuously transformed. Like many, it is hard not be allured by her regal beauty, whatever the angle of the chosen photographer. The results are flawless on so many levels, and personally, the concept of Dark Beauty has never found a better disciple. Agnieszka Osipa’s creations bring couture to a level where history and contemporary fashion collide with true elegance and genuine symbiosis. Prepare for Agnieszka Osipa’s striking world of unparalleled couture.
