Ulyana Sergeenko Couture Spring 2019 fashion show looked more like a theatrical production based on Mikhail Sholokhov's epic novel “And Quiet Flows the Don”, and the film of the same name directed by Sergei Gerasimov.
The main characters of the story named “Sisterhood” are strong women supporting each other without the slightest hint of rivalry. The art director of the show and subsequent photoshoot is the acclaimed German photographer Ellen von Unwerth, whose works celebrate femininity but also a woman’s inner strength and energy.
Svetlana Khodchenkova, Renata Litvinova and Maria Fomina posed before the photographer’s lens.
The collection nodded to Cossack folk costume with tiered skirts, hand-drawn prints and embroideries. The looks were coupled with leather pouches, Cossack boots and lace aprons.
