Sasha Kanevski from Kiev, Ukraine, founded his eponymous brand in 2010. In the same year he started showing his women- and menswear collections at Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days, the international Kiev fashion week, quickly gaining a cult following among the local fashion crowds.
Praised by both local and international press, sasha.kanevski has established itself as one of the strongest independent fashion labels in the country. sasha.kanevski collections are defined by strong, sharp tailoring fused with smart functionality – anatomical cuts, transformable details and high-tech materials are at the core of the brand’s bold urbanistic designs drawn from the cultural phenomena of the modern society.
sasha.kanevski’s international expansion began in June 2012 with a catwalk show during the Fashionclash festival in Maastricht, Netherlands. Month later Sasha held a showroom presentation during Berlin Fashion Week with FIER management and has become a regular ever since. In February 2013 the AW14 collection was showcased at London Fashion Week’s Fashion Scout platform, followed in April by a guest appearance with a catwalk show during Aurora Fashion Week in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Over the years, sasha.kanevski collections were covered, among others, by Vogue Italia (IT), Vogue.ru (RU), Vogue Ukraine (UA), Nowfashion.com (FR), Refinery29 (USA), PIG magazine (IT), Sleek Mag (DE), NOT JUST A LABEL (UK) and Kaltblut Magazine (DE).
