I’d first learned about Ulyana Sergeenko via a few photos floating around Pinterest. The one that stood out the most to me was the photo above. It totally captured a modern interpretation of old world Russian style and beauty. I became obsessed and recently watched her Fall 2013 runway show (which is one of my favorites) and wanted to share it here — if only to make it easier for me to watch over and over again.
Ulyana Sergeenko is a Russian model and street style maven cum couturier. She was a collector of couture, which she wore fabulously, and just has a great sense of style that street style photographers seemed to gravitate towards (which is one of my goals in life, I mean, because why not).
Inspiration for her designs range from Russian fairy tales, to Anna Karenina to the American Civil War, which are evident in these looks below.
Her most recent collection is less whimsical but still incredibly elegant and reminiscent of 1940s glam (view her S/S 2014 collection here). I’m excited to see what’s in store for her future collections.
