High Council of Media and Tailors awarded the title of Collection of the Year for Anna Pietrowicz for the projects entitled 'No one will believe you.' As she said - 'The collection is a record of the process of finding non- obvious beauty, experiments in working with fabric and design. The main motivation for creating clothes was the emotions that leaves the film 'The great beauty' and the Japanese philosophy of 'Wasa- Bi'.
