Yasya Minochkina produces a pret-a-porter line of sensual women’s clothing that has made waves worldwide. Known for displaying a feminine quality that the label has become synonymous with, their Fall/Winter 2013 line merged looks from the 30s, 60s and 70s to a glamorous mix that was one of the highlights of this year’s Fashion Week in Kiev. Elements of Katharine Hepburn — frilly flapper wear  mixed with jumpsuits strutted down the runway. As a force to be reckoned with, this Ukrainian designer is quickly changing the sartorial landscape of her country.

Yasya Minochkina is quickly emerging as a brand on the verge of international prominence. Her designs have been featured in a slew of acclaimed magazines worldwide and her clothes have made a splash at London Fashion Week. As her profile rises, so does her place among a short list of some of the most important young designers to keep an eye out for. Her clothes are especially for the woman that wants to maintain a feminine look while maintaining a steely, understated flair. Minochkina is clearly a re-imagining of everything traditional and ethereal as the label turns fashion on its sartorial head for a new generation.
