The Polish fashion houses are buzzing with excitement to introduce their brands to the US market. Designer interviews and meet and greets will serve as the communication base for the brands to launch their message internationally in New York.

The Polish-American Fashion Foundation (PAFF) is a non-profit organization founded in 2014 as a platform to generate exposure and opportunities for young Polish fashion designers. It is the Foundation’s mission to promote Polish fashion globally, with a special focus on the United States. Ultimately, PAFF would like to provide an entry point for Polish designers into the American market.
For our inaugural Fashion Week (2015), PAFF organized a major fashion event featuring strictly Polish designers – a first for Poland and New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Held at the New Museum, this event was a huge success and lead to new opportunities and closer relations with many important institutions and partners both in Poland and the US.
In December of 2015, PAFF received the “Friend of the Polish Economy” award from the Trade & Investment Section of the Consulate General of Poland in New York. This award is granted to companies that have had a profound impact on the promotion of Poland overseas. This year’s second recipient was Google Inc.
