A while back I became apart of Wowcracy, which is an excellent way to discover up-and-coming designers and celebrate their work. With New York Fashion Week burning on the horizons, I got overly excited at the prospect of new collections and popped over to see some of the latest. Immediately I stumbled upon this brilliant collection from Magdalena Koziej entitled The Missterious Collection.
You’ve heard of her, right? No? Well, me either! But the preview photo seemed very Disney Maleficent-esque and so I got to click, click…clicking away and was left with an overall sense of joy. I mean, who doesn’t just love a bit of drama?
This designer is based in Poland and last January made her debut at Berlin Fashion Week, which I’m sorry I missed because I basically stalked BFW last January. And like the preview picture would suggest, the collection came packed with a sharp-edged punch…literally!
Who doesn’t love a good Silence of the Lambs inspired face mask? Right!
Obviously, we have to talk about the shoulders – because those are some AMAZING shoulders! Their silhouette is what draws me in, and reminds me of the very eery silhouette of Maleficient drawing Sleeping Beauty in from the shadows. I’m probably a tad more into Maleficent than anyone else out there, but those shoulders are inspired!
Overall, the only thing that didn’t have me excited about this collection is how short it is. That innate craving for fashion felt a little unsatisfied when things came to an abrupt end. I’m definitely going to be on the lookout at Berlin Fashion Week this January to see the continuation of what I hope to be some real serious genius!
Kudos to you Magdalena Koziej. I might not know how to pronounce your name, but I can 100% announce you to be a complete badass!
