Now I found out couple more fashion designers from Ukraine, which made their spring/summer 2009 ready-to-wear collections using Ukrainian ethnic elements. Definitely, it is become very fashionable to have something Ukrainian-themed in your wardrobe!
So, if Gucci and Galliano made their collections based on Ukrainian embroidery, Ukrainian Pysanka's (Easter Egg) patterns and Ukrainian folklore costume's cut, Ukrainian fashion designer Olesya Telizhenko was inspired by papercutting art, making her spring/summer 2009 collection. Olesya’s father Mykola Telizhenko (he is a known artist) does a Ukrainian papercutting, actually, Olesya named her collection as “My Father’s Papercutting”. Papercutting it is traditional art in many countries and in Ukraine as well.
All works from Olesya’s spring/summer 2009 collection made from linen, cotton and wool. Here you can see some of Olesya Telizhenko’s spring/summer 2009 ready-to-wear
