WARSAW, June 22 — Poland's place in the thriving Eastern European fashion market hasn't gone unnoticed as the world's most influential style magazine prepares to launch its 23rd edition there in the first half of 2018. Filip Niedenthal, Malgosia Bela and Kasia Kulczyk are the new faces of Poland's fashion police.
Vogue's soon-to-launch Polish print and digital versions will be headed by Filip Niedenthal, a well-seasoned fashion media player who has been appointed editor-in-chief.
Niedenthal's impressive resume includes the top job of launch editor of Esquire Poland, a successful career as executive fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar Polska, editor-in-chief of travel magazine Podroze, in addition to key editorial roles in leading Polish titles Twoj Styl and Viva.
Working alongside Niedenthal will be Kasia Kulczyk (chairperson and founder of Visteria, Vogue Poland's media partner) and Polish model and actress Malgosia Bela, who will become Vogue Poland's editor-at-large.
A respected name in international fashion circles and now based in Warsaw, Bela herself featured on several Vogue covers.
According to Vogue publisher Conde Nast, Bela brings a “unique perspective and experience as a fashion insider,” having worked with the industry's top editors, photographers, designers, and stylists.
Bela, like other fashionable Poles Anja Rubik and Magdalena Frackowiak who can regularly be spotted on the runway at shows by the world's most famous luxury labels, is flying the flag for her country's fashion talent.
Further announcements are expected in the coming months as Vogue builds its “world-class” Polish masthead.
Poland currently runs two big fashion events per year. The trends for the next half-year's season are unveiled at a twice-yearly FashionPhilosophy Fashion Week gathering, which takes place in Łodz, a city that is inextricably linked with the development of Poland's burgeoning textile and clothing industries.
