Designer Daily: Ksenia Schnaider

From Kiev, Ukraine, Ksenia Schnaider has created a unisex collection that borders on austere, and reforms simple layers that play with depth. She was inspired by the modesty of monks and those who are cut off from society. She was fascinated by the hermits of the world, perhaps being from behind the Iron Curtain, she is also expressing that separation. Ksenia started her label in 2004 after training at Central Saint Martins, and has shown at Mercedes Benz Kiev Fashion Week. See her Spring 2012 collection here.?
