Barbara Hoff. Polish Design Polish Designers
The sixth exhibition in Gdynia City Museum’s “Polish Design Polish Designers” series has exceptional promise. For the first time it will be focused on a woman – and an unusual woman, the fashion designer Barbara Hoff. Hard as it is to believe, her varied oeuvre has never been presented at a monographic exhibition. In Gdynia we will see numerous, often previously unpublished archival materials: drawings, designs, photos, films from fashion shows, and – what is most important – original Hoffland brand clothing, on loan from the National Museum in Warsaw, Central Textile Museum in Łódź, and many private collections.
