Irina Vitjaz: NYFW FW18

Vitjaz’s ancestry is closely tied with the Russian Tsars and monarchy, which her family was among the aristocracy and a mainstay in the royal court dating back to the seventeenth century. During that period, the women in her family experienced life as Fräulein (Maids of Honor). As a young girl, Vitjaz was inspired by her predecessors, developing an affinity for luxury and elegance. Some of her earliest memories include time spent in the shop of her grandfather who was a master tailor. It was there that she began cultivating her keen eye for fine design and a lifetime appreciation for culture and design.

Today, the opulence of dress from Vitjaz’s lineage can be seen in her collection’s use of jeweled colors, rich fabrics, and fine detailing. Her collaborators have included like-minded design houses such milliner Philip Treacy, and Swarovski. Among of her illustrious clients is the renowned opera singer Ana Netrebko.

The Irina Vitjaz Fall/ Winter collection’s inspiration, in the designer’s words, “is the woman who can do it all and look feminine and elegant doing so.”

Vitjaz’s presented her Fall 2018 collection on Wednesday, February 14th at Spring Studios. Her runway show closed out NYFW.
