i’ve briefly featured russian fashion designer Lesia Paramonova by way of Susie Bubble (who is evidently a fan, as she has been snapped in her creations multiple times) and was reminded of her splendid work again by thisispaper – which you should be reading if you aren’t already. her latest collection was released last week on her website.

The uniform became the main inspiration. These are the models of a very simple silhouettes with specific surrealistic prints. The main theme is still the wood, already not so real, but surreal, fairy-like, full of fantastic animals and unusual plants: instead of wings ducks could have leaves, and there suddenly could be mouse growing on blackberry bushes. For this collection I created the prints  by transforming my  illustrations that’s why there is an impression that the prints have been drawn on a fabric with a simple pencil.

While creating this collection, I imagined the teenage girl from the Soviet past, with bows, stockings and in a traditional school uniform. It is, in some way, nostalgia on an image of the Soviet school student, but changed and passed through a prism of modern perception.
