How to Dress Like a Fashion Designer

We often see the fashion designers signature pieces on famous street style stars and celebrities. But, have you wondered on how to dress like a fashion designer and be a street style star at the same time? A fashion designer and street-style icon, Vika Gazinskaya is known for her exaggerated crisp silhouettes, hand drawn prints and embroidery, luxe materials and bold architectural shapes that ensured her rapid rise in the world of fashion and signaled a new era of Russian design.

Vika Gazinskaya is a walking billboard for her clothes, which she wears in every fashion week. And, every time without fail, her outfits trigger a wave of photos on fashion blogs around the world, where she is scrutinized like a work of art. We can see on her street style that she’s a fan of architectural and structured outfits with clean lines. Her clothing brand is also known for its high-quality fabrics, though she never uses real fur or leather. Like Vika, you can get an aesthetic that evolves from season to season, but always stick to majestic and amazingly luxurious fabrics like silk, satin, wool and such.

Gazinskaya was first snapped by Scott Schuman, the creator of The Sartorialist, at the Dior show during Paris Fashion Week in 2009 through her bright clothing that stood out against a backdrop of fashion editors dressed head to toe in black. According to her, she thought she’d blend in with the crowd with the thought that everything in Paris is amazing and bright. So like Vika, think of bold colors that look great on your skin tone like red, cobalt blue, lime green, and even neon yellow. Though the fashion scene nowadays features fashion editors dressed towards more colors and prints, she can manage to pull the monochromatic look creatively by contrasting fabrics and wearing unique accessories.

Wearing eccentric prints or even statement-making embellishments can make your street style stand out from the crowd. Tired of wearing your cozy sweater in a blunt shade? Then be creative and incorporate some beads, stones, jewels, and buttons to refresh the look of your old sweater. Vika was spotted wearing a cozy sweater with stone embellishments and printed pants on her street look that you may draw inspiration from.

If you don’t wish to look like a walking masterpiece or advertising some of your designer pieces, then go for a relaxed off-duty look like Vika did. A pair of baggy, oversized, and slouchy pants worn with a casual top can be an effortless way to look trendy on your street looks. Like Vika, just top your casual outfit with a chic wool coat, fur coat, or a structured chesterfield coat to give your relaxed look with some elegance and polish.
