Polish Fashion Stories website was created as an online extension of Chrysalis.  Chrysalis is a beautifully designed limited edition art book telling the history of Poland’s fashion industry from its post-war origins to the 21st century. Aimed at fashion professionals, students and journalists, Chrysalis is the first publication charting the evolution of Polish fashion design in the English language. Its main goal is to promote and raise the profile of the Polish fashion industry in the UK. First published as a limited edition book, 250 copies will be distributed among a select group of fashion insiders and journalists, as well as fashion colleges in Europe and specialist libriaries.  The book will also be available at the British Library, the Bodleian Libraries, Cambridge University Library, the National Library of Scotland, the National Library of Wales and the Library of Trinity College Dublin. 

The online extension aim is to collect stories about Polish creatives working in fashion or projects inspired by fashion.
