YES Calendar 2011 Premiere
The magic of top model, Ania Jagodzińska, captured by Mateusz Stankiewicz! The premiere of the 2011 YES Calendar that took place on 30 November in Reduta Banku Polskiego in Warsaw attracted many guests. They were welcomed with strawberries and champagne, which made them feel the atmosphere of the night very quickly.
This year’s edition of the calendar was created by a unique Polish trio: fantastic jewellery, the top model, Ania Jagodzińska – the star of the calendar, and the talented photographer, Mateusz Stankiewicz. The idea behind the YES Calendar is to present luxurious jewellery in a fresh new light. Thus, every year the YES brand invites a different photographer and a different model. Participation in the 2011 edition was offered to Ania Jagodzińska, a fashion model loved worldwide, and Mateusz Stankiewicz, one of the most sought-after fashion photographers.
The premiere of the YES Calendar was full of artistic experiences. First of all, the guests had the opportunity to admire the results of cooperation between Mateusz Stankiewicz and a world-famous top model: seven magical photographs that made the event exceptional. Apart from admiring these fantastic photographs, the guests were also uniquely able to see a limited Krystof Strozyna for YES Collection designed by the world-renowned Polish fashion designer, Krzysztof Stróżyna. The collection will be available in YES shops in the middle of December. The event was attended by many representatives from the world of fashion. Ania Jagodzińska flew from New York especially for the night. The evening was additionally honoured by the presence of Mateusz Stankiewicz and Krzysztof Stróżyna. During unofficial conversations the guests could find out many interesting facts about their inspiration during their work for YES. An important part of the evening was the auction of photographs from the 2011 YES Calendar hosted by the journalist and TV presenter, Maciej Dowbor. All the seven photographs were sold and the money collected will be donated to Ewa Błaszczyk’s AKOGO? Foundation that helps children suffering from severe brain injuries. The entertainment part of the evening was provided by the charismatic band Rebeka as well as DJ Artur8 and Krzysztof Stróżyna himself, who took up a position behind the decks and made everyone dance to a mix of his favourite hits!
YES has been creating and sponsoring artistic events for years, promoting contemporary art and rising talents. The 2011 YES Calendar was inspired by the secrets and different faces of femininity brightened by the shine of stylish YES jewellery.
