Katarzyna Konieczka

Designer Biography

Katarzyna Konieczka is a costume maker and avant-garde fashion designer. Her creations are mainly to be viewed on a stage or a catwalk. The main aim of her designs is to create an impact on the viewer and evoke feelings. The costumes are not for everyday use. Each costume has been created as a one off, the techniques used to create them were developed by her, by experimenting with textiles, fabric, and paint. She owns all the design rights. Each costume requires special care and each is cleaned separately from everything else according to the label. In most cases Konieczka will re-invent the purchased fabrics by processing or dyeing them, and she never uses fabric straight from the shop. The main motifs in her designs are asymmetry, destruction, dramatics, and the macabre. All costumes were handmade by Konieczka.
