Colorful highlanders' outfits - traditional clothing in Poland | IN MY LENS


Possibly the first post on my blog should be more...architectural...but then really, should it? ;-)

I like a lot vivid color compositions, patterns, and I definately have a thing for beautiful textiles so when I went to a big Catholic feast (indulgence) in a small Polish village, on 15 of September this year, I was delighted. Women's traditional clothings, on the contrary to those of the men, were often contemporary cuts combined with traditional elements. Women looked fantastic in white shirts and extremely colorful skirts. Belts and corsets were elaborately embroidered, possibly by themselves.

I was happy to finally see highlander culture alive and real, so different than what tourists usually get to see. And I think I will come back there some year!
