Author:   Юлия Миронова



If you don’t want to look like any mass market lover, it’s high time you moved to a new level of shopping. Luckily, there are lots of cool designer brands of clothes and accessories in Belarus. We won’t be even surprised, if after this article everyone will go shopping to Minsk



Start your journey around belarusian fashion design from Kardash. Everything created by Olga Kardash, the brand founder, is surely admired by all fashion lovers. Embroidery deserves special attention: just look at storks on the sweatshirts (from €45) and dresses (from €110), that have already become legendary. They are modern, of high quality and about Belarus.


  Where to buy? On the website  or in the Kardash Show Room (9, Masherava Avenue, Korpus 8).




Julia Babiy


Julia has a degree in architecture and each her collection proves it: clean lines, elegant cutouts and broken colors. If you want to create an intellectual and minimalistic look, pay attention to classy wool coats, interesting blouses and silk velvet skirts. They would have cost a fortune in Paris or London!


  Where to buy? Contact Julia on Instagram.




Natasha Tsu Ran


If you want something underground and absolutely unique, check out Tsu Ran. Natasha Tsuran presents her work at belarusian and ucranian fashion weeks and keeps surprising us with her ideas: she is inspired by Frida Kahlo, creates an antiglamourous collection Smietnik (that means junkyard in belarusian). Clothes by Tsu Ran suit for any occasion: there are cool dresses for a night out, and comfortable bombers, and warm wool jackets. The collections are just for women.

Streetwear lovers would love this brand. SAVVA offers many variations on cotton knit suit, sweatshirt and dress theme. All of them are decorated with the coolest prints of cute owls, belarusian forests and elaborate ornaments. That is the case when you don´t need to change after a morning picnic to go to a party in the evening.

Search for an ideal wool coat or a fancy knit sweater may appear to be a hard job: there’s always a risk to look like a model from a soviet magazine of the late 80s. But don’t worry; ZIBRA designers expertfully mix materials and textures to create modern clothes with a gentle retro vibe. Just have a look at the coats with huge rouches on the pockets and wooly embroided sweaters – that’s a definite musthave.

Tanya TUR


The fantasist of belarusian fashion Tanya Tur does something that even the most sophisticated fashionistas, and much less the Belarus Fashion Week runway, hardly have ever seen before. All those dresses with hares and squirrels, radish shirts, fly agaric pants are just mind blowing! Tanya’s clothes are really authentic, they all are handmade. You’re not likely to meet someone wearing the same outfit at all.
