Canadian Designer Profile: Irina Bikeeva

We attended the Matsuri Festival; a summer celebration of all things Japanese!

While there, we spoke with Irina Bikeeva, an emerging Canadian designer based in Toronto. This is her first season and her first full collection, which was inspired by ballet the Swan Lake and the movie Black Swan. In it, Irina portrays the tension between hard and soft materials like leather and tulle, and combines feminine silhouettes with hard-edged industrial details.
