It is significant that in many winter collections, presented by students, were used a lot of artificial fur, but not because they choose to go fur free. As a matter of fact, the young generation in Russia like real fur, but natural fur is just too expensive for them to be used in their collections.
Alina Syrykh ‘s collection gives the consumer a chance to be creative
Escapism, fairy tale, medieval tapestries, unicorns, bestiary animals, ladies of noble birth, peasants and knights. In Alina Syrykh’s Melory collection a story and a fairy tale come together. The Melory collection escapism takes first place and takes on the positive form of a fairy tale, read through prints and textures.
In addition to fabulous prints, the basis of the collection is transformer wearing clothing. Each garment in one way or another is a transformer.
