Lily James actress in Downton Abbey -a British period drama television series – wore Vilshenko to Day 2 of The Wimbledon Championships and also Paula Goldstein, Purple’s Fashion Director was spotted in Vilshenko at the Women for Women International and De Beers Summer Gala at the Royal Opera House.
Lily James chose a high collar long sleeve dress with sensual cuts on the back with a central check on the skirt and open back. A splendid game of interweaving between prints and colors, a typical folk style by Vilshenko.
Paula chose a more elegant style for its events: a black semitransparent blouse with delicate embroidery with red and gold shades. Puff sleeves and gold accessories for a look très chic.
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.
