Laser cutting
A unique method of laser-cutting leather was developed in the fashion house
The Ulyana Sergeenko team was inspired by carving techniques of Karelian wooden constructions and reinterpreted them in a unique method of laser-cutting leather. Three pieces in the collection incorporate this approach: a trench coat, a cropped jacket, and a corset with a basque. The process took place in multiple steps.
First the pattern was drawn, then sheets of leather were laser-cut, and only afterwards they were shaped into the dress pattern. To achieve the effect of layering, miniature details were cut out separately and stuck atop of the design.
