The Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2013 Couture collection cites Russian folklore as its inspiration. At the show, models stepped through the frame of a looking glass to reach the catwalk. Another ode to fairytales included the use of red velvet, a sophisticated take on Little Red Riding Hood.
The silhouettes pull inspiration from the past, but Sergeenko's outfits are sculptural and modern. Even the inclusion of detailing like ruching, lace and the use of cutouts is mindful of keeping a modern aesthetic. One of the most standout garments in the collection is a gold foil dress that mixes a modern material with a medieval-inspired form.
It is easy to imagine Sergeenko in any of these dresses, especially the silhouettes with long, full skirts and fitted tops -- this completely embodies her signature style.
