Ukrainian designer Vita Kin makes a splash in the international fashion world

 

Culture, Ukraine

Ukrainian designer Vita Kin has introduced a most difficult term – Vyshyvanka, a traditional embroidery technique from Ukraine – among fashionistas and in the international fashion community. Her exquisite dresses have become real sensations in the fashion world, adjusted to reflect traditional Ukrainian patterns, with amazingly bright colors and trendy flowing lines, adding a strong Seventies vibe.

Such widely-read fashion magazines as Vogue, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar have all written extensively about and photographed Vita Kin’s ethnic-inspired clothing that can be worn with flats, high heels, sandals or sneakers.  The Telegraph (Lifestyle/Fashion section) has devoted several articles to these unique and original Ukrainian creations, drawing attention to “the authentic feel of the hand embroidery and age-old methods used by Ukrainian ancestors”.

We’ve selected the most interesting creations from Vita Kin’s collections that may inspire you to create your own spring-summer wardrobe, giving you that that chic and modern look whether it’s on the beach or in the elegant quarters of European capitals.

Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using ťhe chance - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you). We are now $5,000 short of our financial goal and need your support to continue working. If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation!

      What RuSSian fashions?! I didn’t know they had any of their own – unless they’re Mongolian? They generally just steal from others and call it their own! I suspect they also do this with fashion(?).

        RuSSian fashion used to be a Kmart tracksuit and joggers.

            I didn’t say they wear Yves Saint Lauren tracksuits.

    This is old news, but its worth repeating.

    There has been a flowering of creativity in Ukraine since the Euromaidan in 2014. This is manifested in many way, but especially in haute couture. Ukrainian fashion designers are respected the world over, in Tokyo, Milan, Paris, etc.

    It shows what can happen when the cultural straitjacket of Moscow rule is cut.
