Style inspiration: Ulyana Sergeenko

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Hey loves! It's Wednesday and this normally is the day dedicated to the designer spotlight posts. Today I decided to take it even further and make it all about the woman who's my biggest style inspiration. She always looks feminine, sophisticated and romantic, like taken out of a classic Russian novel from the XIX-th century. She's a designer, a photographer, a freelance stylist and one of the most beautiful and stylish women in the world of fashion. She's Ulyana Sergeenko. 

Her passion for fashion appeared unexpectedly. Her parents are both philologists and she attended an English languages school, where it was obligatory to wear plain school uniforms. Ulyana never followed the norms and always found creative ways to wear her uniform, like for example the dress that was part of it  paired with pants. Throughout the years she never gave up her love for fashion and although she never could afford expensive brandy clothes the talented designer wore her own models and couture replicas. The first designer piece she ever bought was a Vintage couture Givenchy dress from the world's biggest antiques market - Saint Ouen. This piece is what formed her signature style - lavish cuts and feminine silhouettes. Ulyana believes that it's good to invest into pieces that someday will be in a museum, and I believe the ones she designs are exactly this!
