VOROZHBYT&ZEMSKOVA, womenswear label on the high end fashion market founded by Tetyana Zemskova and Olena Vorozhbyt. In 1993 they graduated the artistic department of the Institute of Technologies and Design in Kyiv. While studying they had succeeded in the famous Nina Ricci fashion contest. Since 1997 designers are working under their own brand V&Z. By this time they began to show ready-to-wear collections twice a year at national catwalk of Ukrainian Fashion Week. They are not just participants of the important fashion events in Europe, but also are acting as judges of national competitions.
The design duo has made their mark over the past two decades with stylish and intellectual prêt-à-porter. They are deservedly considered as one of the Ukraine's most respected fashion designers. The style of their tandem is faultlessly recognizable; and is built on contrasts. The DNA includes both intellectuality and severity with a keen sense of humor, as well as unique silhouettes and artistic patterns. Designers work with contrasts of colors and tones, also trying to combine timeless classics with risky contemporary styles.
