Wow, the sun is shining and spring is really on its way!
What better a time to introduce a new designer to HQ, the delightful Anastasia Lomonova!
Anastasia began her fashion career through her studies at Torontos Ryerson University. In 2004, she moved to Montreal, QC where she apprenticed with designers Valerie Dumaine and Nadya Toto.
After working briefly for a clothing company in Montreal’s Chabanel District Anastasia launched her own line under the Anastasia Lomonova label. Her first casual wear collection appeared in stores in April 2006.
Following a successful debut, Anastasia is focusing on a more refined look, creating a collection that combines unique cuts with expert fit and clever details like delicate pleating, cute little buttons and great colour combos. Fabrics include weightless chiffons, soft jerseys and structured cotton. Lines are clean and polished, yet very feminine and flirty. We think that the mixture of floaty chiffon and smooth silky jersey is wonderful. It takes a bit of the preciousness of chiffon away and really gives it a modern look. Love it!
Anastasia will be dropping off her spring collection later today, so be sure to stop by later this week and have a look see and why not, try on a few pieces too.
