EXHIBITION| Kiev Fashion Days, Irina Krasilnikova AW14

Young Ukrainian designer Irina Krasilnikova showcases her AW14 collection 'Transitions' at Fashion Scout today as part of Kiev Fashion Days. Krasilnikova’s handcrafted knitted pieces give the illusion of 3D shapes which unravel to reveal what is indeed laser implementation. Tracing the subtle movement between reality and falsity, the garments reflect the natural human desire to change the things around us.

“I strive towards bringing versatility within my design, thus offering conversational pieces that are created to evolve with the wearer”, she explains. “My designs are for a very contemporary urban woman, and I think it’s an obvious and a well-balanced woman”. 

Krasilnikova’s innovative approach to design creates a new paradigm which integrates sophistication and romanticism. Boasting the international interest of ELLE, Cosmopolitan and Bazaar, the emerging designer brings forth a panache collection which marks a shift in brand development.
