Victoria Gres

 

Slick and sultry, this designer — also a noted expert in dying technology and processing of fabrics — loves to utilize the design essence that is often seen in  vintage lacework as the base of her creations. It’s through these fashionable sources of inspiration from which Victoria has created her latest collection as an homage to the intricate world of laces, textiles and vintage couture. Creating a soft romantic vibe with lace tops, beautiful flowy full dresses with a noted 1920′s vibe and  fantastic oversized jackets complete with buttons and patchwork reflective of yester year.

Zalevskiy

 

Aleksey Zalevskiy is known in the Ukrainian fashion circles as a “king” of avant-garde designs. A mixture of retro-chic, with injections of iconic vibes as exuded from one decade to the next: specifically the romance of the 50s, the sexual revolution of the 60s, and technological advancements of the 2000s. With Zalevskiy, it’s all about celebrating the unusual combinations and how they feed off of each other’s energies thus creating a unrivalled fashionable result.  And yes, hats off to the runway presentation itself where models didn’t have to strut but had to actually climb across mini-mountains of paper and boxes to strike a pose at the end. Love it!

Ksenia Kireeva

 

This Kiev-based, former commercial and music video stylist who is a designer in her own right, showcases her collection with colour in mind. And lots of it. Streamlined looks boosted by eye-popping hues which was utilized as an accessory onto itself, highlights each cut in every look. Whether the colour is in the fabric or the very cool belted detail, it’s all about bringing back some fun in Fall’s fashionable spotlight.
