Fairytale «Canterville ghost» by Alena Akhmadullina

Collection fall-winter/2014-2015 was inspired by the fairy-tale of an English writer Oscar Wilde “Canterville ghost”.

 Collection fall-winter/2014-2015 was inspired by the fairy-tale of an English writer Oscar Wilde “Canterville ghoast”. Notwithstanding the fact that collection appeared to be very femine the designer took a rood cut as a basis that is typical for the men’s wardrobe: big lapels, the elements of English costume. It didn’t go without traditional for women’s dresses with author’s prints. If you look closer than you’ll see the prints reminding of the details of an old castle and drawn lace, ribbons and boutons.


On the catwalk there were as well models of silver leather and fur, designed by mosaic technology (the different parts of fur are combined together in different variations). One of the main elements was the fur-coat “sky” that contained the images of the celestial bodies the cut of which thanks to a special manner of design reminded the castle’s wall made of wooden panels.
The main accents accompanying all the collection’s looks were the clutches of colored leather with a side handle.
