Ulyana Sergeenko designed a gorgeous couture collection that evokes feelings of an old-time romance, sensual and elegant with a dramatic flair.
“It’s a glamorous woman taking a voyage through the Eastern republics of the former Soviet Union" The Russian couturier explains. Inspirations were taken from a train trip, with destinations that included Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Ulyana tells a story through her exquisite collection and translates the adventures of a femme fatale.
Detailing was greatly emphasized and close-up you could see the intricate details and careful craftsmanship for each piece. The collection featured luxurious silk satins, hourglass corsets with very defined sweetheart necklines, hand-painted fringing, some layering and silk embroidery. The accessories fit the theme with colourful vintage-feel trunks and bed-roll clutches with flower embroideries and tassels. All the models wore peep-hole pumps and looked sultry and sophisticated.
Below are my favourite looks from the collection, be sure to check her work out, links below.
