Meet Ksenia Kams - A Combination of Colors and Details
As a graduate of the Kiev Institute of Construction and Architecture, designer Ksenia Kams pays the utmost attention to lines and silhouettes. She is at the forefront of the “slow fashion” trend, with local production taking place in St. Petersburg, Russia under the direction of a single master tailor. Utilizing the very best Italian fabrics, Ksenia desires to bring inspiration and joy to women with looks that are feminine and vintage-inspired, yet have a modern edge. Her style transcends trends, resulting in wear-forever classics with a Russian twist.
