2022 | A rollercoaster of achievements, authenticity and creativity

Looking forward 2023

The community of Polimoda had a lot to be proud of in 2022. From Carpe Noctem Final Graduation Show to the collaboration with the United Nations and Microsoft, from the start of the revolutionary Master in Textiles with Lidewij Edelkoort to the lessons of our students on TikTok, until our debut in Dubai and the brand-new photographic campaign Creatives 2022, Polimoda people showcased their talents all throughout the year. Each brought their own unique perspective to the fashion industry, creating authentic projects that will stay with us for years to come.

As we move forward into 2023 with optimism and excitement for what’s ahead, we can look back fondly on all we accomplished in 2022 as a source of inspiration for what’s still yet to come.

We can’t wait to see what Polimoda people come up with next!
