To mark the extensive donation by Polish-German fashion designer Dawid Tomaszewski, the Kunstgewerbemuseum is showing designs by the designer from the last 15 years. The exhibition takes a closer look at the man and fashion designer Dawid Tomaszewski through his collections, designs, accessories, drawings and photographs, revealing a design history made in Berlin.
After working for Sonia Rykiel in Paris and Comme des Garçons in Tokyo, the Berlin-based fashion designer Dawid Tomaszews founded his own label in 2009.
From the very beginning, his creations were at the interface between couture and commerce. While he designs elaborately crafted couture pieces for the catwalk, his collections for QVC cater to a wider audience. This dual approach allows him to give free rein to his imagination in his couture designs.
The results are dresses and trouser suits embroidered with crystals, extravagantly draped evening dresses and unusual mixes of materials.
