Ekaterina Tkachenko

designer
Florence / Italy

WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

I am an emerging fashion designer born in Russia in 1985. I graduated at Polimoda in Florence and I then worked for “Braschi” in San Marino and at the atelier of Iris van Herpen in Amsterdam. I was chosen as a finalist for several international fashion design competitions: including Fashion Culture Project (London) Fashion Design Award, and Taiwan (Taipei). In 2014 I chose Florence as a “home” for my personal project: “Ekaterina Tkachenko Design Studio”. I deal with clothing for mens and womens, but lately I’ve decided to focus on menswear. I’m specialized in in winter clothing and fur. My SS17 collection “Cosmic Trash” has been presented during “Pitti Uomo 90” in Florence, while I presented the collection FW 17/18 this February in Moscow during the fair “Collection Premiere Moscow”. Until now I have only produced garments for order and small quantities, but in the future I plan to grow the program in production and in distribution. All my clothes are made in Italy, with the use of local materials. The vision of the brand is the combination of a high quality product with a self- ironic design.

THE CONCEPT OF YOUR COLLECTION

The collection “Cosmic Trash” SS17 is characterized by a dreamy spirit, influenced by the futurist images of the space age and mixed with oriental inspirations. I developed the collection through the use of various techniques including patchwork and digital textile printing.
