Hirko! (AW 2019/20) press release

On the eve of Saint Valentine's Day, fashion designer Jean Gritsfeldt is going to present his most romantic collection — «Hirko!» (Kiss! Kiss!). For the first time in the history of Ukrainian and world fashion, the traditional final runway walk of a model bride will turn into reality.



“I always wondered: if a designer sews a bridesmaid dress for the final runway walk, then why doesn’t the groom appear at the end of the show to marry her? — says Jean Gritsfeldt. “So I've decided to go the whole hog and finally hold the wedding not only for the model, but for the designer as well.

”

Jean's chosen one is still an intrigue. However, the designer reveals several secrets of the upcoming collection: the usage of wedding symbols — wedding rings, embroidered white swans on knitted fabrics and translucent organza ribbons, pompous bows, embroidery and applications from nano-paper recycled fabric. The main colour of the collection is white, the colour of innocence and purity.



A separate block of the «Hirko!» collection is reserved for prints of DNA, red roses and hearts.
