Last summer, Ukrainian studio Ksenia Schnaider celebrated its 4th season of holding shows at Chengdu Fashion Week in China. To Ksenia and Anton Schnaider, the designers, some things in Asian culture seemed too unusual during their first visits; but later, they started to feel romantic about them, and Chengdu city itself. In its turn, Ksenia Schnaider`s design gained its true admirers in China. As a result of this mutual love, a short movie was born. In the movie shot by the designers team together with ARCHIVE branding agency, we see beautiful love story of a girl and her city.
Main heroine of the movie is a Chinese girl whom Ksenia met during first show at Chengdu Fashion week, where she came with her mother. In the movie, the girl dressed in Ksenia Schnaider F/W 2014-2015 walks down the central streets of Chengdu, looking all romantic – yet a bit weird, in a sheer Asian way.

Needless to say that Berlin Mitte is the hotspot of the creative and fashionable community of Germany‘s capital.
In January 2011 EDGED started as a showroom and pop-up store in Torstraße. After the huge
success in the past, also this season EDGED Showroom has selected a range of designers
to present them to buyers, press and a fashion interested crowd. With Panatom Gallery,
EGDED found a perfect host for this years showroom. The gallery is an independent exhibtion
space dedicted to a dialogue between free artistic working methods and applied design. Here,
avantgarde design, art and music will merge into an assemblage of creative exchange via fashion.
Even though we are living in times of an overhelming flow of information, industries and politics
are coined by delusion and disguise. EDGED tries to create awareness of this topic with an
installation that picks up the concept of optical illusion. A series of events curated by the pop and
subculture blog wolf auf tausend plateaus will broaden the discussion.

Ksenia Schnaider Autumn/Winter 2013
For Autumn/Winter 2013 European unisex brand Ksenia Schnaider present “Bodywarmer”, a collection inspired by the classic bodywarmer, a quilted garment which was incredibly popular in the Soviet Union due to its affordability, utility and versatility.
Ksenia has taken inspiration from the iconic garment and carried it through the entire collection, quilting dresses, skirts, jackets, coats and the backs of t-shirts, mixing her fanned panelling technique with a unique approach to quilting. Despite the affordability of the bodywarmer during its boom in the Soviet Union, Ksenia has, as with all of her work given classic silhouettes and traditional techniques a luxurious twist with her continued use of leather, velvet and silk throughout the collection. Dresses, coats and t-shirts are soft to touch, and the iconic bodywarmer is coated in leather, enhancing its quilted qualities with deep, almost segmented detail, inevitably placing it at the heart of the collection.
