Inspired by the myth of Arachne and a 1960’s NASA experiment where spiders were exposed to various drugs, Malgorzata Dudek presents a highly dramatic, intricately detailed, structured yet form-fitting collection. The collection, entitled Arachne, features a mix of fabrics including: silks, cotton, jersey, wool, sheer netting, laser cut metal elements , and imitation leather. Committing to a vision of high fashion free of cruelty and utilizing recycled fabrics; the designer’s loose knits were made of (dyed) recycled wedding gowns, imitation leather was manipulated to give a leather-like texture, and one massive structured piece was made from a recycled couch.
About the Designer
Malgorzata is based in United Kingdom. Her collections are produced in Poland.
Malgorzata Dudek is a fashion designer born in Poland. Her upbringing in the forested countryside taught her an appreciation for nature and harmony, while life behind the "Iron Curtain" gave her a longing for all things colourful and outside the norm.
Her earliest fashion influences were colourful clothes which her family received in packages from West Germany and local designer Edyta Dabrowska, whose avant garde costumes and happenings shocked the locals. It was Edyta who inspired seven year old Malgorzata to have her first fashion show, whose attendees were her classmates. She stylised a crowd of Marzanna effigies (in altered West German clothes), burned and drowned them in the stream behind her house.
