Valentin Yudashkin Fall 2013-14 at Paris Fashion Week

PARIS – We all know Russia is very cold in the winter, but Russian designer Valentin Yudashkin certainly took the ice and snow theme to new heights with his Fall 2013 collection at Paris Fashion Week. He explored this theme through cutouts in a leather dress, colors like white and icy gray, and earring puff that looked like snowballs. Silver and metallics were commonplace here. The collection was ornate and decorated, with embellishments, bejeweled dresses, and brocade galore.
