ORANJESTAD — Ateliers ’89 gladly presents Fashion show and Exhibition “Goldenhero” by Agatha Mickiewicz from Poland and Kristina Czika from Hungary. The event will take place tonight December 7th 2018 at Ateliers ’89.

After a successful workshop that started on November 12th of 2018, given by these 2 international artists, participants are ready to show you what they have learned. The teachers of the workshop ‘Hero’s in Fashion’ taught the participants how to design and make the costume of their own personal hero. This means something different for everybody and every hero has his own identity. In the workshop they learned how to translate identity into fashion by using color, fit and choice of materials.

Designer Agata Mickiewicz was born in Poland but studied and worked in many other places in the world. She studied fashion in Wroclaw (Poland), the Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp (Belgium) and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. She worked for, among others, the design studios of Iris van Herpen, Victor and Rolf, Rick Owens and Gosia Baczynska. In Poland she worked as a costume designer on various television series and taught at the Foundation Atelier in Warsaw. She recently lived in Reykjavik (Iceland) and will soon be based in Berlin (Germany).

 Krisztina Czika was born in Hungary but studied design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. She now lives in the Netherlands for 5 years. There she made, among other things, a large musical instrument from recycled paper for the Muziek Gebouw on the IJ in Amsterdam. She has done several residencies including recently in Colombia. Lately an exhibition of her paper project was shown at gallery Pouloeuff in Naarden (NL).

The fashion show and Exhibition will be outrageous. There will be a special presentation of Singer Shuga Mama from Curacao accompanied by DJ Adriano Nanof and artist VJ Styrmir Gudmundsson. Local make-up artist gen Roga will also delight you with her magic.
