Yulia Yanina presents Haute Couture line based on fairy tale “The Snow Queen”

The Russian couturier Yulia Yanina at Haute Couture week in Paris presented collection based on fairy tale “The Snow Queen.”

“This collection has been designed using my favorite fairy tale as inspiration – “The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Andersen” – comments Yulia Yanina.

 

“The concept is not to portray a fairy tale girl but a modern Gerda, an intelligent, romantic and perfectly educated girl who lives in her dream. A modern traveler in search of true love, passion and inspiration”, – says designer.

According to her, in the tales of Anderson, two worlds are seamlessly intertwined – the real and the magical – who serve as some a sort of screenplay for a fashion collection. Dresses take the form of heroes and heroines, who Gerda meets throughout her journey, including a little robber, a Finnish women or a Lapland lady.

The collection includes capes, sleeves, hoods, mittens or branching reindeer antlers. This fairy tale is also synonymous of the struggle between good and evil – Gerda the “good girl” dressed in adorable school uniforms and the audacious Snow Queen, both cold and attractive.

“Nature has always been an inspiration to me. This collection conveys all the beauty of Russian winters, noting that the Fall Winter season has always been one I cherish very much. In fairy tales, the good always triumphs the over evil, women are feminine, and men are courageous. The most important is that beauty triumphs”, – explains Yulia Yanina.
