Yesterday was the day! Yesterday at noon my first show in New York was started! I’m so excited that showed new collection called ‘Guest from the Future’ exactly in New York - the city of big fashion changes. My new collection is dedicated to the new generation in fashion and appeals to the growing role of millennials in the world, who are the newcomers in the fashion world. My generation, my 20-years old peers - are like space invaders in fashion now and my collection is all about them and for them! As always, each Anna K guest-from-the-future-look is perfect for the street style!
Fashion is changing rapidly and its main trend now - youth. Fashion houses invite young designers, street-style stars and celebrities want to look young. I see it on the example of the visitors of my website and my Instagram @annakfashion. I didn’t chose New York accidentally for my first show in the big league of the fashion world: my brand and its history is the example of American dream, what is more, exactly from this city the fashion marathon starts and it is a huge advantage for my buyers and my showroom Tomorrow.
It’s my first time in New York and I just can’t hold strong emotions and impressions, which evoked in me me this city. I’m more than sure now that the decision to use all the forces in this direction and to develop my brand here was more than logical! So far, I felt only the city itself, there is no time now to explore the main attractions, because the days were super active as we were preparing for the show all days long. Together with my team and with Daria Shapovalova, we were engaged in the casting of models, fitting. We have an infinite number of meetings with the organizers, stylists, masters of make-up and hair stylists, DJs, photographers. In general, no minute to stop and enjoy the rest. But high quality result requires great effort! I'm sure the guests of the show, press, buyers will be satisfied with the result and will love my collection!
I’m so thankful to all the models, who took part in the show - without them it wouldn’t be so bright and tender. Among the models on the show were top model and the face of the ad-campaign of Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days Alina Baikova, top models Magdalena Frakowiak, Alla Grigoryeva, Michaela Kocianova, Anastasia Masyutkina, Anastasia Bondarenko and Olesya Senchenko. Special thanks to my close friends Sonya Kooperman, Sofia Evdokimenko and Liza Arfush - they were diamonds at this show!
New York based DJ Mia Moratti made the soundtrack specially for my show - I’ll download it soon on the website, stay tuned!
I'm so happy that Sofie Valkiers, Linda Tol, Daniella Greco from «V Files», Pascaline Smets from «Smets», representatives of one of the largest buying offices "Lambert Associates", head of "Fashion" in Instagram Kristen Joy Watts, Carolyn Merrel, my dearest friends Adam Katz Sinding, Yana Davydova, Lee Oliveira. What's more? NY Times, T Magazine, W Magazine, Vogue.com, Grazia.it, L'Officiel Italia, Elle Italia, Marie Claire, V Magazine, Elle.com, Cosmopolitan US, Elle USA loaded the front row of my show! Can't hold my emotions!
To tell you more about collection, I want to say, that it’s consisted of 120 items of knitwear, cotton, silk and leather. The new collection combines my characteristic elements: trapezoidal transparent dresses, warm, soft sweaters, ultra-mini skirts. Famous lovely bows from the latest Autumn-Winter collection were transformed into attractive "cosmic" brooches in the shapes of stars, rockets, comets, planets and satellites. Leather jacket with embroidery - a key element of the collection - designed for the girl who lights the streets with her inner space light.
For the first time I’ve created the line of leather jackets, which are resembling the astronaut’s costumes. Be sure, you will love this jackets, which are not from here, they are from the future, for you, for my generation.
What about the shoes, you may ask? After the success of specially developed loafers for the latest Spring/Summer collection, I’ve decided to create capsule shoes collection every season. Moreover,
together with my sweet friend Nicolo Beretta (founder of «Giannico» brand) we’ve created special shoe line ‘Giannico for Anna K’. We are both 20, we were called by American Vogue "symbols of the new young generation” - why not to work together? It’s a great chance! Symbolic “The Guest from the Future” idea is transformed in 3 shoe styles - boots on the high hills, elegant low shoes and sneakers. Shiny stars, embroidered rockets and moons are the key decoration elements of the collection.
