Erwin Michalec Painted Fashion

Erwin Michalec's designs have a mixed media of ethnic influences. He is fascinated with Haitanian voodoo and the strong connection between Polish and Haitan. Inspired by the Caribbean and African culture, it has become a signature element throughout his collections alongside bright and vibrant colours and a mix of unique shapes and styles. His print designs include several months of art experiment to create the images seen on the outfits. The starting point its a mixture of African symbols as well as ancient influences of European pottery culture. It is an attempt to connect together a few different cultures, separated by hundreds of years of history and thousands of kilometers in order to create a more modern style. As seen in Vogue.
