Wilanow for Young Talents – Fashion at the Court of King Jan III Sobieski exhibition!

I feel incredibly privileged to have been invited to the opening of this new exhibition at Warsaw’s beautiful Wilanow Palace and for me to say this, you can be sure that it truly was something spectacular. Not just to have been given the opportunity to see talented young designers conjure up their most incredibly well-crafted creations, encapsulating the couture court dress of 17th Century Polish King Jan III Sobieski but I was also humbled to have been taken under the wing of Elzbieta Litwiniak, an archaeologist, reconstructor of historic clothing and one of the jurors for this year’s competition.
