BACKSTAGE| Merit Award Winner SS14: Yulia Kondranina


Yulia Kondranina made quite the impression last season with her famously fringed dresses. The Russian born Central Saint Martins graduate has been given the Fashion Scout Merit Award for SS14 and everyone is dying to see what she has brought forward for this season.

Recognised for her full length viscose fringing- Yulia also has a talent for creating subtle detail. Her eye for understated elements was discernible backstage as her hair stylists and make up artists were keeping it organic.

Head make-up artist Lan Nuguyen-Grealis stated that the look they were going for was "tribal”. Wanting to keep all the attention to the clothing the makeup was fairly neutral; a flushed face and unruly brows presented a striking androgynous tribe.

Straight out of the shower hair and effortlessly aggressive makeup- the untamable Yulia Kondranina tribe will present the collection faultlessly.
