Fashion & Styling] Ukrainian Designer Bobkova, The Architect of Apparel

on , , , , , , , , ,


Bobkova, A breakthrough line from Ukraine-- creates multi-dimensional, architectural yet functional collections aimed at urban stylish women.  The creative force behind this amazing label is Christina Bobkova.  Armed with a degree in fashion from the Kyiv National University of Technologies and Design, Christina had almost equal passion for Architecture.  This would explain her unique approach to design.  Sketch-free, she prefers to directly sculpt the designs on a mannequin, playing with fabrics, and following their natural folds and creases.  The final product is usually unique, thoughtful, but not complicated.

At the tender age of 23 in late 90's, Bobkova created her first collection under CB-Design. A small tight collection then, has now grown to be a full-fledged ready-to-wear label under Bobkova.  As if churning out new collections season after season aren't enough work, Christina has also designed costumes for numerous Ukrainian celebrities and TV-shows. Admirably, she never lost sight of her love for knitwear; the skillfully incorporated knitwear into interesting combinations with chiffon, wool, and other fabrics remain to be her signature aesthetic.  Check out her F/W '13 collection here and you'll see what I mean!
