Wednesday, 05 September 2012
This time we have a pleasure to unveil the name of a tandem, which has become a nominee at two categories at a time. The Experts nominated a progressive fashion duo of Natalia Kamenskaya and Olesia Kononova for Best Women’s Clothing Designer and Best Accessories Designer within BEST FASHION AWARDS-2012.
An incredibly talented kamenskayakononova tandem has rapidly covered the traditional way for a successful brand – from the “first-steps-stage” to a tremendous success. The brand was founded in 2008 after the victory of designers Natalia Kamenskaya and Olesia Kononova in a Ukrainian contest among young clothing designers “Look into the Future” initiated by Ukrainian Fashion Week. The first collection of kamenskayakononova brand presented within Ukrainian Fashion Week called out a vivid interest among the most renowned fashion critics and gained the hearts of many fashionistas. In several years kamenskayakononova brand has become one of the most progressive successful fashion brands of Ukraine.
Despite a comparatively young history of kamenskayakononova brand it has already managed to find its place among the Top-5-Ukrainian brands according to fashion critics and professional fashion editions, whereas “Glamour Russia” magazine (September 2011) rated the brand among the Top-10-most perspective CIS brands. Even such an authoritative edition as Vogue Italy called the duo “Future Fashion Stars” and published an impressive interview with the designers.
Today the creative duo successfully presents collections not only within Ukrainian Fashion Week, but within Aurora Fashion Week (Russia) and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia.
The designers of the duo experiment with fabrics, forms and accessories creating clothes for a modern self-sufficient woman, whose sexuality lies in her intellect. Minimalism together with sophisticated constructions, laconic silhouettes and strict cut, creative geometric forms and contemporary interpretation of elegance characterizing kamenskayakononova collections always catch an eye of the most exigent fashion experts, whereas each catwalk show becomes a bright and exquisite event and engages more and more devoted clients of the duo.
