Anna October’s family name was given to her Grandfather after he served in The Great October Revolution in 1917. Growing up in the industrial city of Zaporozie with a strict military family, it was near enough impossible to achieve her teenage dream of becoming a fashion designer. Anna escaped to Odessa at the age of seventeen as she moved to study fine art at Art College Named After M.B.Grekov. 

Just one year after moving to Odessa Anna launched her womenswear label so she could spread the world with her ideas. This seasons Paris Showrooms will help the young designer to do so.

Anna October will be showing her skilled tailoring through her light and sparking garments with a touch of irony. Her timelessly elegant feminine silhouettes will no doubt be a hit at PFW SS14 . Look out for the 'OTRADNOE' collection at Paris Showrooms.
