In October 1905 “Świat Kobiecy” magazine held the first competition for Polish women’s garments. Artists, tailors and people connected with the world of fashion were invited to participate. The designs had to allude to Polish traditional costumes or those with origins in Polish nobles’ attire. The competition results were announced on 12 February 1906. 26 designs were sent in, including clothes, dolls in miniature versions of the designs and drawings.
