Anna October is a spirited designer who brings both style and substance to her eponymous brand. The very name, “October,” has storied roots: the designer’s family participated in Russia’s Great October Revolution in 1917 and was given the surname to commemorate the historic event that rocked the world. Several generations later, Anna October was born in the Ukraine, where she studied pattern-cutting and tailoring. These skills, combined with her subsequent fine arts studies in Odessa, made her uniquely qualified to create a fashion line characterized by precisely-tailored silhouettes, fantasy flourishes, and exceptional quality. October was shortlisted as one of the best international fashion designers for the LVMH Prize in 2014. She has many muses, most recently citing 1970s minimalism, Henri Matisse paintings, and porcelain cups as sources of inspiration. The keywords for this October revolution are “modern,” “grace,” “joy,” and “new luxury.” Each garment – a triumph of color and form -- celebrates Игривый женственность (playful femininity!) and молодость (youth!).
