The collection “Nebesna*” from Chernikova was presented on July 20 at SUMMER WEEKEND BY ODESSA FASHION DAY 2017
*“Nebesna” means “Celestial”
The collection consists of light dresses from batiste, embroidered flared trousers, shorts from costume fabric and weightless cotton blouses.
Each look was created to convey the beauty of the infinite – from the horizon to the horizon – the starry sky seen by the designer in the mountains. Thin blue canvas is a celestial surface, white dots of paint are stars and clusters of ornaments are the whole Milky Way.
The dresses are decorated with delicate dark blue velvet and embroidered patterns (ancient motifs and techniques reinterpreted in modern times) – gerberas, ferns, various geometric ornaments.
The lightness and airiness of the blouses are supplemented with clear geometrical patterns of ancient Ukrainian embroidery-nyzynka (running stitch embroidery put from below).
The designer, as an artist, managed to create her sky with her stars – only from fabrics and silk threads. Feminine, light, romantic, tender.
The designer’s comment:
The sky, that night it was so... special. From the horizon to the horizon it wrapped me up in thin, delicate fabric. Its color was also special, the paint was for sure watercolor. George Brummell, Walt Disney and Christian Dior had seen this sky, precisely this sky! Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Sophia Loren had dressed themselves in this sky.
This collection is about a state here and now, about a flirt, playfulness. Without clear rules. Where there is honesty and faithfulness only to yourself. No promises for the future to anyone else. The state where there is maximum clarity of feelings, where good is only that to what internal personal consent is given.
