Russian storyteller Alena Akhmadullina tells her stories on fabric. For the better part of the last decade, she has weaved her designs with the help of folklore into the hearts of many including Amal Clooney to Jennifer Lawrence. Her pre-fall collection remains consistent to her primary inspiration but adds a sense of accessibility which may have been gradually building as she tackles the American market. From slip dresses to exquisite intarsia knitwear she created a collection full of classic luxury and regal fashion. Visually each piece tells a story and the more you look at them the more the layers present themselves like a good novel.
