"It is a hundred times better to suffer and live than to remain asleep. To Hamlet's 'To be, or not to be' I say, to be, to be, to be! Gather all the strength in your soul and press on forward and ever higher!"
— Helena Modjeska
Helena Modjeska Society participates in organizing the contest ‘Helena Modjeska – the Style Icon’ with The Wilanów Palace Museum (in Warsaw, Poland). Contest involves sewing a replica of one of stage or private dresses of Helena Modjeska or alternatively creating a new design inspired by one of actress dresses. Jointly we plan to present winners and their works in Orange Country, California during special exhibition in autumn 2013.
