Best of Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days

    Kostya Omelya

    Inspired by Japanese prints and calligraphy, Kostya Omelya followed the Eastern route — minimalist and monochromatic. There were floor length trapeze dresses, kimono skirt sets with kabuki sleeves, peplums, and obi belts. The most ornate designs were the organza dresses and jackets, which added a touch of dynasty goth. A sure sell? A black and white puffed sweatshirt that many audience members were already wearing.
