Svetlana Kalinichenko creates bold collections for the modern woman. Having previously designed for the fashion house of Victor Grigoryev and shown at both Moscow and Ukrainian Fashion Week, Kalinichenko is set to showcase her latest collection on the Fashion Scout Kiev catwalk. 

The brand's new season collection is inspired by movies of the 1950s and establishes a fusion between both past and present. Kalinichenko tends to take an artistic approach to her design aesthetic and in past collections has often explored asymmetry and the use of the sculptured line. Expect a depth of contrast from the designer's AW14 showcase as the brand combines heavy wool coats with delicately flowing silk dresses to toughen up an otherwise feminine statement piece.

Having studied Fashion in London and graduated from the Russian University of Theatre Arts in Moscow, Kalinichenko has gone on to achieve great success in her native Russia and looks set to continue to impress the fashion industry with her latest offering.
