Friday, 05 October 2012
On October 4 Elena Migdisova, the designer of OBRANI brand presented an exclusive fashion show of Prêt-à-Porter and Haute Couture ss’2013 collections at the most creative location! Right in the centre of Kyiv, a new helicopter landing ground turned into an amazing catwalk “between heaven and earth”. Before the show the guests could enjoy instrumental music and a performance by Loui Ostin, as well as to try delicious cocktails based on Baileys.
This night designer and owner of OBRANI brand Elena Migdisova presented her first independent Prêt-à-Porter ss’2013 collection as well as 14 sophisticated couture evening dresses.
Prêt-à-Porter collection was a triumph of vivid colours and feminine silhouettes in the spirit of the 30s. All the collection is created in Italian silk of the finest quality and finished with hand-plaited lace.
Couture collection is created in the best traditions of couture fashion. The collection is made in French and Italian silk and finished with lace accentuated with pearls and silver chains. Each look is unique and hand-made, as well as hand-made earrings presented by the designer. The models followed down a non-trivial catwalk in shoes designed by Elena Migdisova herself and made in Italy.
The designer surprised the gathered fashion community with original newly-interpreted shirt-fronts “manishkas” based on traditional national costumes of France, Russia, Spain and Ukraine.
The fashion show was crowned with Elena’s triumphal appearance on the catwalk in a retro automobile.
The show was visited by Russian actress and film director Renata Litvinova who bought several dresses from both collections right after the show.
The partner of the show L'Oreal presented Yves Saint Laurent cosmetics to each guest of the event.
OBRANI fashion show will soon be broadcasted on Fashion TV, whereas Ukrainian Fashion Channel broadcasted the event LIVE.
