The Essence of a Woman

The inspiration behind Alexander Terekhov's Spring 2008 line, Terexov, is perhaps the simple essence of a woman. Clothes, after all, are meant to be worn as opposed to wearing the wearer, and stylistically Terekhov's clothing never undercuts the importance of his muse.

Originally from Russia, 28 year-old Terekhov is relatively new to the US fashion circuit— September 6, 2007 marked his second showing at New York Fashion Week. He is however, no newbie within the Russian fashion elite, and has been featured regularly in the Russian editions of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour. A graduate of Moscow’s Institute of Fashion Design, he won an award to train under Yves Saint Laurent in Paris.

Beginning the show with a clean white silk dress, which skirted the runway with delicate sensuality, the line graduated into a range of styles, expressions, and silhouettes. While the Terexov palette was definitively understated, using black, white, grey, and a hints of taupe and lavender, the pieces, from a taupe grey bubble skirt and a plunging white halter, to a long-sleeve essential v-neck midnight dress, exemplified the drama of simplicity.

Terekhov designs his clothes with both the comfort and natural sensuality of a woman in mind—his materials embrace while his cuts compliment. He is truly proving to be a master of the female form.
