Beware Paris, Milan, New York and London! A new generation of Ukrainian and Russian fashion designers are proving that the Soviet days of black-market blue jeans are behind them.

    Ulyana Sergeenko

    Country: Russia

    This Russian designer, often known for her street style, has also been making international waves with her Dior-meets-Kremlin collection. Sergeenko almost always emphasizes an hourglass form by cinching and belting dresses at an empire waist. Her lavish use of traditional Russian floral prints as fabric for trumpet-hemmed dresses makes for a stunning group of Soviet pin-up girls with a Parisian curve.
