Mimkho recreates Von Trapp fashions

I viewed a bunch of emerging designers this past fashion week, one that still stands out in my mind is Mimkho, a NY-based designer who reportedly looked to her Russian roots for inspiration.  I had to wonder if she didn’t just steal from The Sound of Music instead.  Wearing old world fabrics reminiscent of what you might find hanging over granny’s windows, Mimkho’s models marched militantly down the runway.

Given that the”1917 revolution, WWII, and the Communist Era” were themes that she explored, the model’s stomps and serious expressions were right in line.

  1. Von Trapp is right…these are NOT a few of my favorite things…

    I would place this collection as “ethnic”…it’s not following any trend but each piece is worked pretty well and since I was backstage, I was able to notice the close attention to detail in the fabric design. Also, I love the lux fur trim.

      Yes, I’m a fan of fur too!
