Kiev, the capitol of Ukraine, is situated on the Dnieper River. Talented designers like Artemkilmchuk and Drag+Drop pulled out the stops this season. Kiev Spring 2018 Fashion Week brought out all different silhouettes and shapes, patterns and drapes. Let’s look at what Kiev has to offer this Spring 2018 Fashion Week.
Like the rest of the fashion world, Kiev has been gripped with a need for all white outfits. Artemkilmchuk displays the sophisticated side of this style with a longline suit coat over some stylish cigarette pants, while Subrosa goes for a more casual, linen suit. Chakshyn creates a simple, white dress with a well placed slit up the side, and Flow the Label’s white dress is enhanced with gold chain straps and a gold chain, sweeheart neckline.
Flip through these fabrics:
Crop tops are perfect for any garment, whether you’re throwing one on over a circle skirt for a picnic, or under a blazer for a work even. Anton Belinskiy plays around with gender stereotypes, creating a menswear turtleneck crop top that fits nicely with the suit. Chakshyn’s cropped sweater, paired with a lovely orange skirt, walks the line between casual and collected, while Drag+Drop’s simple crop top is perfect for a night out on the town.

Longline Suit Coat
Longline suit coats are a great way to add variety to your professional wardrobe. Artemkilmchuk’s red suit coat hugs the model’s hips in a very flattering way, adding a bit of sex appeal to the traditional suit. Chakshyn’s suit is less form-fitting, but has a lovely drape and movement to it. Flow the Label throws a long line suit coat over a long dress, making modern modesty a little more hip.
Go long with these fabrics:
A classic pattern, polka dots can sometimes be seen as a little tacky. Chakshyn shows that’s an unfair opinion, with a stunning skirt suit that contains a cropped suit coat and an asymmetrical skirt. Flow the Label’s faint polka dot is a subtle way to add texture and depth to a garment, while Marianna Senchina’s fifties style dress uses the polka dot in the most traditional way, and adding to bows for an interesting effect.
Get spotted in these fabrics:
The puffed sleeve adds beautiful movement to any garment, which Kiev proved this season. Anna K’s bell sleeved dress looks modest, yet it’s subtle sheerness is an interesting juxtaposition with its crew neck and knee length skirt. Flow the Label’s blouse with Victorian-style sleeves adds a nice touch of color, especially when paired with these high waisted trousers. Marianna Senchina’s puffy sleeved blazer dress is reminiscent of the fifties, especially with the well-placed ruffles around the hips.
Stiffen your sleeves with these fabrics:
The structured bodice follows the curvature of the breasts, giving an interesting silhouette. Artemkilmchuk’s is very similar to the popular lingerie trend, throwing a sheer sleep over a corset-esque dress. Drag+Drop’s structured bodice is attached to a loose fitting, yet still form fitting, dress that uses patchwork in an eccentric way. Flow the Label takes the structured bodice and tones it down, attaching it to a sweet and simple white dress.
