As most of you know, I always search for designers who are outside the box in creativity. Those with original creative design concepts. Ulyana Sergeenko is one of them. She began her career in fashion as a buyer of couture after marrying a very wealthy man. She became an instant street style star for her Edwardian/ Russian doll/ fairy tale influenced style. She would often ask Moscow designers to create specific looks to meet her unique taste, which she found featured in the designers' own collections. So, in 2011 she started her own couture fashion label, made in Russia which she shows twice a year in Paris. Ulyana's vintage aesthetic is something we really love and admire!
