1. How did the story of the brand Katerina Kvit begin?
The story began rather quickly. After graduating from the Institute of Fashion and Design, jewelry brand Oberig had offered to make a special design dresses for them! The project was so successful that the first customers appeared immediately on the presentation. In order to give the first order, I had to make a brand name, tags, labels and covers. And the brand Katerina Kvit was born.
2. Recently the collaboration Katerina Kvit and Oksana Holubchenko – T.Mosca has appeared. How do you manage to combine work and make the collections so different?
Experience on one brand really helps to build and work on another! When there is a fine concept and the idea of the brand, always try not to deviate from it, when you create the collection. Concept Kvit and T.Mosca were originally different, so to combine several projects is real.
3. What fabrics do you prefer to work with?
During building of the brand, I always said, that I love to work with fabrics that keep their shape! But time past and you always want to experiment. Currently I like to combine incompatible fabrics: dense with light chiffon, and so on. I never liked thin knitwear. And love for him did not wake up.
4. Describe the image of the girl from Katerina Kvit.
The girl from Katerina Kvit, of course, it is a reflection of my inner world and feelings! Beautiful, strong, but weak, stylish, but sexy, knowing the price, but modest!
5. The latest collection Katerina Kvit recalls the style of the 80s and 90s. What can fans expect from the brand in the new season?
Now we live in a time, when you always come back to the past and get ideas from the past! “It is not bad, nor good, just now is the time” – said one contemporary designer! Therefore, of course, in the new summer season, we again go back to a few years ago. And how much, you will see on the show.
