Designer Spotlight: Alena Akhmadullina

Russian designer, Alena Akhmadullina studied at the St. Petersburg State University of Technology and Design form 1995 to 2000. She presented her first collection, Autumn/Winter 01/02, at Russian Fashion Week. Her design astethic is heavily influenced by Russian culture. It is evident in the patterns she chooses. It is also evident in the rusts, blues and greens and burgandy colors in her Spring/Summer '09 collection. There are also very deliberate silhouettes that remind you of the tops of Russian cathedrals. Here are my favorites. You can see her entire collection on her web site.
