GARDEN OF WONDERS

A flower garden. Cherry blossoms, daffodils and violets had just blossomed.
It was a sunlit day. Girls cheerfully giggling plucked flowers and making holes in the ground. They placed their favourite flowers in there and sprinkled them with golden dust. The garden filled up with splendid miracles. This was a happy day, eating cotton candy and blowing golden soap bubbles.
This collection features magnificent flowers and exceptional glow. Golden threads, ribbons and crystals. The transparent raincoats decorated with flowers make this collection particularly unique.

T.E.V.

The Hairpin Collection is my view and understanding of the ancient, primordial forms, and the human relationship with all living things.The aim of the collection is to unify fine art with jewellery . Miniature etchings have been made in wood with a special instrument, and they serve both as a decorative element of the pin as well as printing block. The print of the jewellery design is an addition to the overall piece. Though many great artists sought techniques to link jewellery and fine art, direct integration is rare.

INTUITION

This pre-fall 2015 fashion collection “Intuition” is designed specifically for woman and made up of five individual articles of clothing that include dresses, trousers and tunics. The concept of this collection goes round the feeling that awakens when a new piece of clothing is being chosen. From what I have gathered, women are more likely to pick out an outfit based on how it makes them look and feel instead of just blindly following the name of the brand. Female consumers are after authentic, one-of-a-kind outfits that help them reflect their personal style and stand out from the crowd.

Frozen Moment

I used as a starting point idea of a silent moment. For me it is incarnated in stone, landscapes and blur.I use a polymer material and cover it with marble.Silence is light and transparent like the material I use. The unique combination of these two components creates the illusion of a solid stone.
I question traditional approaches and instead of valuable jewels, I celebrate the idea behind the material. For the rear of the brooches, I use valuable metals like gold, silver and titanium.
My idea is to show beauty of a moment in a landscape or stone-like abstract figures crafted in to brooches.

Having preserved the current quality of sheep wool blankets for kids, an innovate system of four- weft layer weave construction has been made, which gives an opportunity to make jacquard drawings of four-color mix in the same time. It gives you more colorful, brighter drawings without using the line composition, which is changing the both two colors in the weft- line by line.
For example, using orange, pink and red- the tone of the drawing is not influenced by only the covering layer, but also by a color mix of a yarn in the next layer, for example, yellow +orange, yellow +pink and so on.
