Womenswear designer Lera Leshchova showcased her AW13 collection as a part of Fashion Scout Kiev on 24th March. One of the youngest and most popular Ukrainian designers, you can certainly see she's one who knows what she's doing. In a presentation that seemed to evoke an essence of the underwater, feminine dresses of various lengths walked the catwalk in a collection of clean, functional pieces. With a focus to detail, innovative draping, the textured embellishments and introduction of graphic cuts only served in giving a notable edge to the designer's work.
Born with a dream to become a couturier, Leshchova hit the ground running, mastering the fundamentals of dress-making from a notably young age. Having already won a number of competitions and awards in her native country, the designer's talent shone through here with a tailored collection of timeless wearability.
