My romance with textiles and fashion started 17 years ago when I began my studies at Strzeminski Academy of Art in Poland. Since that time I have been a boutique owner, denim designer, designer of army uniforms, pattern cutter, garment technologist. I love textiles for the endless room for creativity, It’s both a branch of art and an industry. I don’t enjoy the speed and pressure of the fashion industry, where ‘copy’ and ‘paste’ are the most often used design concepts and products. I have experienced this as a full time garment technologist working on production for the world’s biggest ‘fast fashion’ chain. All you can see here in my Etsy shop or on my facebook page www.facebook.com/paczulafashion is a form of calming therapy after working a 9 hours minimum day, 5 days a week work in the craziest, busiest and most chaotic environment you can imagine. Most of my items are recycled. When I get bored with a top or trousers, I cut it into pieces and turn into a necklace or rug. This way a T-shirt which was one of 500000 pieces of exactly identical T-shirts can become something unique and one-of-a kind.
