On March 29th and March 30th Fashion Scout Kiev took place, showcasing the work of both innovative and exciting upcoming designers in the Ukraine. Now over for another season, we run through the selection of designers on the catwalk for Day Two.
For AW14, designer Katerina Kvit combined furs, cottons and silks to create an autumnal collection of garments. With a dark, rich colour palette, Kvit's pieces were as practical in their design as fashion-forward in their thinking. One of the last designers to showcase as a part of Fashion Scout Kiev, Kvit seems to have embedded herself firmly within the Ukrainian fashion scene.
Having already showcased seven collection previously, Kristina Mamedova's work is no stranger to the catwalk. After graduating from studies in economics, she decided to return to her real passion in clothes design and creativity. For AW14 she walked a collection of simplistic but effective pieces with flashes of leather and collar detailing present throughout.
Atelier Isa's AW14 collection, entitled Metamorphosis Coal, presented a dark collection of lace and velvet to introduce to the female form. Contrasting textures and taking inspiration from feminine undertones, Isa's designs were as wearable as they were a progression for the label.
D'Harmonique pride themselves on providing clients who perceive harmony in things intuitively and find interest in modern music, cinema and art with interesting clothing. Taking simple pieces and adding accessories, colourful graphics and cultural looking details, D'Harmonique's AW14 collection was one of seemingly organised diversity.
Cathy Telle is a designer who strives to create collections of wedding dresses and evening wear. Taking delicate detailing and elegant sensibilities, she brought pieces that stayed true to her aesthetic to the catwalk in a collection with a fresh colour palette and feminine charm.
With a brand ethos which revolves around craft and music, designer Ivan Sheldon brings the years he spent in the atelier of textiles and machinery to the catwalk for his AW14 collection. Presenting a simple collection of graphic lines and comfortable cuts, his passion for mathematics and architecture become quickly clear in a calculated and well designed offering of garments.
It's Julia Bialetska who is the creative mind behind Yulia JU's first collection on the Fashion Scout Kiev catwalk. Delivering a variety of garments entitled 'Industrial Princess', Bialetska wanted to minimise the complication from clothing in both its delivery and the way it's produced. With classic forms and modern materials, we look forward to seeing where this catwalk debut will next take Bialetska.
