Another exciting addition to Kiev Fashion Days this weekend is Ukrainian born Natali Dudka, whose emphasis on strong femininity and an independent sense of self has created a brand with a seriously charismatic aesthetic.

A runner up in the Sabotage Designer Contest at LVIV Fashion Week, Dudka has since honed her skills and has quietly been refining her brand in preparation for her AW14 showcase.

Inspired by architecture and her surroundings, Dudka combines these influences with her own personal style. All elements key in developing a collection thats so close to her own ethos yet designed with the consumer in mind, the Natali Dudka woman is strong and follows structural shapes whilst maintaining a surreal feminine charm. This is only emphasised with the touch of small details including cloud prints, split hem skirts and luxurious fabrics.

Catch Natali Dudka at Fashion Scout Kiev as she presents her AW14 collection on Saturday 29th March.
