We met Ekaterina in September 2019 in NYC. The beautiful Ukrainian born, London raised designer Ekaterina studied at Central Saint Martin’s where she completed her BA in Textile Design. Before establishing her eponymous label in 2011, Ekaterina went a step further and trained as a specialised knitwear technician on the industrial knitting machine, STOLL, which takes pride of place in her studio in Chelsea.
Intricate knowledge of yarn behavior, various knitting techniques and technical expertise allow Ekaterina to transfer patterns and prints into 3D in form of womenswear. Ekaterina’s technical knowledge, coupled with trend-led design, allow her to manipulate all the different elements in order to produce colourful, bold, yet flattering and wearable womenswear line.
She carries two lines: Lesfriday and a more upscale made to measure Kukhareva.
Travel is the key inspiration for Les Friday brand, indulging a woman’s desire to travel and explore. The line is packed full of wearable pieces, that will take the Les Friday woman from beach to a night out on the town or indulgent exploration of “city du jour” hidden gems.
The label offers a variety of silhouettes from shirt dresses and kaftans to party dresses in luxe, signature fine knits, cottons and sumptuous cupro fabrics accentuating a woman’s shape. Each piece appeals to the adventurous nature and jetset lifestyle of Les Friday Woman.
