Countless photo shoots, unforgettable stars, significant events in Poland and abroad. Vogue Polska is proud to have featured top models, such as Anja Rubik, Christy Turlington Burns, Eva Herzigová, Adwoa Aboah, Lara Stone, or Cindy Crawford, as well as Victoria Beckham, Jane Fonda, Andie MacDowell, or Charlotte Gainsbourg, on its cover pages. The main theme of this anniversary edition is the start of the season. We enter spring ready for new challenges and full of hope about what the coming months can bring. For this issue’s cover photo shoot, Ali Toth and Anikó Virág, heads of our fashion section, have selected their 50 favorite runway looks, which are meticulously analyzed by Kamila Wagner. But that is not all. Members of our editorial crew share their dreams about this new season.

“The premiere of the Polish edition of Vogue coincided with significant changes in the global fashion world. Phoebe Philo was leaving Céline, while Virgil Abloh presented his first collection for Louis Vuitton,” writes Ina Lekiewicz Levy, the editor-in-chief of the magazine, in her editorial. Today, as all the industry experts interviewed by Julia Właszczuk agree, fashion is undergoing a transformation again. On the one hand, the industry is being stimulated by the growing impact of artificial intelligence, while on the other hand, we are witnessing a revival of crafts and second-hand collections. “Fashion is about to become even more unpredictable and diversified. The contemporary struggle with chauvinisms and discrimination that have been shaping fashion for centuries will make the industry more open to people who have been marginalized,” says Marcin Różyc, a journalist and fashion curator. Zuzanna Skalska, a trend analyst, believes that the professions of the future will include a “shoemaker 4.0” — a craftsman assisted by modern technologies. Are we still going to see constant rotation among creative directors of fashion houses in the future? “What has been going on in fashion houses in the recent seasons is sometimes referred to as waltzing, a big bang, or a huge reshuffle. If you think www.vogue.pl that creative directors of fashion houses change frequently, you should wait and see how quickly they will probably change in the future,” analyzes Kamila Wagner.
