Katya Leonovich is not only a designer, she is also a painter and that artistic spirit is always present in her collections.
For her Spring 2013 show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Katya Leonovich’s artistry is clearly evident in silhouettes with experimental sculptural drapes and hand painted fabrics and leathers. The silhouettes also emphasize movement, with charmeuse, taffeta and chiffon fabrics giving the looks a lightness that made them float down the runway.
A color palette of greys mixed with greens, blues, pinks and purples give something for everyone in this Spring Collection. The hand painted fabrics add dimension to the garments, creating interesting prints that mix all of the colors together.
Katya Leonovich also shows off her sense of humor with the last two garments having the hand painted faces of Obama and Romney on them!
