    New York Fashion Week: Katya Leonovich Spring 2013 Runway Show

    Last Saturday, Moscow-born fashion designer Katya Leonovich showcased her Spring 2013 collection at Lincoln Center in New York. The designer’s story for the new line conveys a delicate woman with a strong statement that demands to be seen and heard.

    The focus of Katya Leonovich’s collection was on the details. Each piece featured a unique technical look such as pleats, crinkles, and plisse. The designer chose to use a lot of soft fabrics including chiffon, organza and charmeuse, creating a very natural and flowing look. The clothes were beautifully rich and with metallic shades of pinks, purples, blues, and emerald greens fit for a peacock.

    The grand final of the show was showing two models strutting down the runway side by side, wearing each a leather gown with a hand-painted face of President Obama, the other of presidential candidate Mitt Romney. With this unusual twist, Katya Leonovich used the attention on the runway partly to point out the importance of the upcoming presidential election on November 6th.

    Katya Leonovich’s Spring 2013 collection emphasized the blurred lines that usually separates Spring from Fall which shows, that cool tones are no longer reserved for only cool months. Certainly a bold move of Leonovich, and one that might be a good inspiration for others to follow.

    BOLD: Unique technical look // Soft fabrics incl. chiffon & organza // Natural and flowing look OLD: Too metallic // Political touch unnecessary

      I saw Katya in the Box at Lincoln last year but I have to saw – I liked her Fall 2012 collection better than this one here. I don’t know why, it’s just so weird.

      I’m usually a fan of her’s but this political thing at the end was really silly!

      No, no, no girls – Katya Leonovich is perfect! I liked her collection and I loved the closing. I’m for Obama btw;-)
