LITKOVSKAYA is a Ukrainian brand founded in 2009 by designer Lilia Litkovskaya.
Coming from a family of four generations of tailors, Lilia Litkovskaya has always seen it her mission to preserve this profession and the crafts surrounding it. With her namesake brand she unveils the way traditions could be integrated in a modern context and is committed to working in an ethical and sustainable way. Known for her taste for bold shapes, refined tailoring and intricate craftsmanship, Lilia Litkovskaya explores the idea of contemporary dressing through sleek yet quirky silhouettes and edgy yet fluid designs.
Deconstructing the very concept of modernity through tailoring and a bold touch, she offers a radically realistic wardrobe for today’s woman who is free to be both fragile and fierce. With a subtle yet pulsating sensuality seamlessly sewn into every garment, LITKOVSKAYA creates a unique relationship between a woman and her clothing. The brand’s motto is “there is no wrong side” meaning that the things we do and words we say don’t have a wrong side - the inside out. That statement is reflected in double-sided outerwear, reversed denim, and the simple fact that the inner side is always meticulously worked through.
The brand’s clothing label is always covered with another label - a plain white one - to symbolize that every garment is a fresh start, a new page of a new personal story for its wearer. With her background in art history and a master’s degree from Kyiv Polytechnic Institute - Ukraine’s leading technical university - Lilia Litkovskaya has achieved recognition both in her native country and beyond. She is now showing her collections in Paris during official womenswear fashion week. LITKOVSKAYA is present in stores in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Kuwait, Seoul, Tokyo, Hong Kong and others.
