Ulyana Sergeenko’s Fall-Winter 2014 collection is opening the doorway to Russia’s past of coups and revolutions, from the first quarter of the 20th century. Audiences at Paris Fashion Week will be shown into Ulyana’s world of Russian avant-garde, with anticipation as her last collection featuring elements from her childhood spent in Kazahkastan and Central Asia will still be on their minds.

Now, a faded memory of a fallen Imperial Russia, and monarchy remain embedded in the art of faberge.
