About the Designer
Senior Thesis Collection, "Body Couture"
displayed at Columbia College Chicago on Wabash Avenue in 2012
"Born in Poland, I started creating at an early age. It started with Barbie clothes, then a variety of doll clothes eventually leading to the creation of life-sized garments. In my early teens, I immigrated to the United States of America where I attended the local grade school then high school. It wasn’t until my high school years that I came to the realization I wanted to design. Soon I began experimenting and sewing on a regular basis. Upon graduating high school, I decided to pursue my passions and attended Columbia College Chicago majoring in Fashion Design. Columbia aided me in expanding my knowledge of design and trends, then piquing my interest for construction and production. Recently graduated, I aspire to use these skills and passions to pursue what I love most, and continue creating.”
Agnes' Designs on stage at the Joffrey Ballet
"I took part in a Charles James inspired competition my Junior year of College and was a finalist. My work was displayed in the windows of 618 S. Michigan Ave. for a few months. I was then contacted by the artistic director of the Joffrey Ballet, Alexei Kremnev, who incorporated my design into his performance of Le Roi in March of 2012. The design of my dress was modified for the stage, 6 female and 6 male versions were made."
