About Babushka capsule:
My childhood passed in Ukraine and I was a child of the Soviet period.
I was influenced by my mum seeing her designing and creating clothes with her friends, because in those times it was almost impossible to get clothes in stores. Getting fabrics was always a challenge too.
My babushka ( “grand mother” in ukranian) somehow managed to get them almost always thanks to knowing the right people and she was extra careful not waste a single inch.
Indeed, all the fabrics that she reached were designed in state-run fashion houses, vetted as to their conformity with Communist ideals. To give credit where it is due though, it should be said that many of those fabrics were of excellent quality...
Now I recovered those fabrics which were carefully kept by my babushka during more then 30 years, I decided to create a capsule collection using all those fabrics.
This collection has very limited stock of pieces. It s very intimate, personal and true to my roots.
Big thanks to my idol babushka, without her these things would be impossible.
