This is definitely the new label-to-watch

Paris Fashion Week plays host to the biggest names in the industry: Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Chloe, Saint Laurent, Balmain and Balenciaga – to name a few. And this year, amongst the most acclaimed designers, UAE-based Kristina Fidelskaya made her international fashion week debut.

The 42-look collection, which will be available next Spring/Summer 2018, is inspired by the story of two strong women, Wally Winthrop (played by Abbie Cornish) and Wallis Simpson (Andrea Risenborough), in the 2011 British romantic drama directed by Madonna, W.E.

The clothes depict the powerful female personalities from the film in an elegant and feminine Fidelskaya-esque way with structured jackets and figure-empowering silhouettes paired with silk dresses in earthy tones of mercury, rose quartz and tobacco.

Anima, the name of the collection, translates from Italian to ‘soul’ and is the ninth collection from the Dubai designer, who has previously showcased at Fashion Forward and Arab Fashion Week.
