VILSHENKO effortlessly fuses an unconventional sense of eastern heritage, artistry and folklore with western couture disciplines, resulting in a collection of exceptionally tailored separates in sleek, distinctively modern silhouettes and finished with chic opulent touches.
Vilshenko is the eponymous line of Olga Vilshenko – a peerless designer whose formative years were steeped in quality craftsmanship due to a long-standing family legacy in garment manufacturing. Hailing from the Ural region of Russia, this talented artisan received an early education in sartorial elegance from her mother – an inimitable fashion rebel intent on producing bespoke articles of clothing for her family in response to the vast swathes of austere conformity to be found in stores during the then-communist regime. Vilshenko is committed to creating striking yet tastefully constrained pieces. The designer’s unique aesthetic – marrying classic construction, minimalist silhouettes and rich detailing – was honed at the Institute of Fashion and Art in Russia and London’s Istituto Marangoni. Olga Vilshenko now splits her time between these two capital cities, maintaining a studio in each. These two worlds seamlessly come together in Vilshenko – a timeless, highly sophisticated line that stays true to Olga Vilshenko’s original vision.
