Curated by Alexi Lubomirski, established name within the fashion industry, this exhibition conceived in collaboration with The Polish-American Fashion Foundation (PAFF)promoting Polish fashion globally, hosts a variety of styles and approaches to presenting fashion and serves as an insight to the generation of young accomplished photographers born in the 80’s and 90’s from Poland, a true European hive of contemporary creation right now not only in Visual Arts and Photography, but also in Architecture, Design and Fashion.

Open to the public from Friday, Oct. 27 till Sunday Oct., 29 (9 am – 7 pm), the exhibition will give the opportunity to diverse New York audiences to get an interesting insight into the Polish young creative forces, all in the heart of the historic Polish diaspora neighborhood, Greenpoint. It is conveniently located between Williamsburg and Long Island City, and the area has been rapidly transforming before our eyes for a couple of years now becoming an inclusive platform fostering all kinds of contemporary creative industries.
The fashion, photography, visual arts as well as general and industry media representatives will be welcomed into the A/C/O ample space on Thursday, October 26 evening 6 – 9 pm with flowing libations and light vegan hors d’oeuvres. Modern paced music will engulf the room throughout the Opening night of this discursive exhibition presenting the fresh Central European take on fashion photography now.
