Russian fashion designer Vika Gazinskaya has collaborated with animal-free performance fabric brand Ultrafabrics for an exclusive collection at MATCHESFASHION.
Gazinskaya, who launched her eponymous label in Moscow in 2006, is renowned for her structured designs. The new collection, Vika 2.0, features high-quality basics crafted from only upcycled materials, natural fabrics and vegan leather.
The vegan leather pieces use Ultrafabrics Brisa Fresco, a PVC and adhesive-free performance fabric which is designed and produced with softness and durability in mind.
The collaboration with Gazinskaya builds on Ultrafabrics’ commitment to working with the fashion industry. Last year the brand sponsored Helsinki Fashion Week, the first fashion week to ban leather.
TheIndustry.fashion has curated a gallery of the full collection:
Nicole Meier, Director of Branding for Ultrafabrics, said: “Since we make a luxurious, animal-free material, we support the notion of quality over quantity as consumers are increasingly interested in ‘good for the environment’ investment pieces for their closets.
“As a forward-thinking, animal-free performance fabric manufacturer, the ethos of Ultrafabrics slots seamlessly with Vika’s mission to create a more sustainable fashion brand.”
