It was presented by the brand's new Creative Director Galina Yudashkin as part of Dubai Fashion Week on October 14th 2023, the birthday of the company's founder Valentin Yudashkin who would have turned 60 this year.
The collection was based on Valentin's stories about his love towards women and reflects his admiration for their beauty. The main theme of the collection is a woman in time, which draws inspiration from different eras, such as: Renaissance, Antiquity, Baroque and Art Deco mixed with Middle Eastern and Asian styling.
The collection was inspired by bright and delicate colors of gold, pink and blue with a floral motif present in all pieces of the collection, from voluminous petals, created from beads, sequins and bugles, to thin lines reminiscent of twigs with scatters of morning dew. The leading colors of the collection reflect the changing seasons, from the cold frosty mornings of March to the warm and radiant days of June.
The collection is completed by the traditional bride’s Haute Couture dress made of French lace and decorated with intricate hand embroidery. To create the collection, various materials were used brought from all over the world, including crepe, organza, gazar, chiffon and silk, with utmost attention paid to in-house handmade embroidery, created in the best traditions of the Valentin Yudashkin brand. Complementing the looks are unique handmade gloves made with French lace and embroidered with lush flowers.
The new Haute Couture Spring / Summer 2024 collection is an ode to women whom Valentin Yudashkin has always idolized.
