Now Ternopil city has a boutique of famous Ukrainian fashion designer Roksolana Bogutska. Bogutska's boutique you can find in Podolyany Mall of Ternopil.
Roksolana is Lviv's designer. She graduated from the Lviv College of Applied Arts and the Lviv Academy of Applied Arts. Roksolana Bogutska's brand is celebrating a 10 years in 2008. 10 years ago Roksolana has been representing her first collection on Fashion Seasons Ukrainian pret-a-porte week. Since that time, Bogutska's brand became very popular in Ukraine. Roksolana has opened boutiques in Kyiv (a capital of Ukraine), Lviv (a biggest city of Western Ukraine) and now in Ternopil, another West Ukrainian city, a neighbor or Lviv.
Actually, there is some connection of this designer with Ternopil region. A name of this connection is Borshchiv embroidery (Borshchiv is a southern area of Ternopil region). As Roksolana likes to use ethnic details in clothing, she is putting Borshchiv embroidery to many her works. Roksolana made a dress for First Lady of Ukraine Kateryna Yushchenko with using Borshchiv embroidery. Another dress for Ukrainian First Lady Roksolana has created in Bukovyna style (Bukovyna is ethnic territory of Chernivtsi region, a neighbor of Ternopil region). A top of this dress she made in Bukovyna's floral beading traditions, and purse to this dress had the same beading as well.
Another one very famous client of Bogutska is Ruslana, a singer from Lviv and winner of Eurovision 2004 Song Contest.
Roksolana Bogutska is the most known Ukrainian fashion designer who likes to combine traditional Ukrainian embroidery and beading with modern tendencies in wear. As folk elements in wear are fashionable ALWAYS, I think, Roksolana's works will be topical for many-many years. Besides, she prefers to work with natural materials only such as silk, wool and cotton. Of course, this stuff cost more than "chemical" fabric, but wear from natural materials is healthier, it doesn't look like cheap and "temporarily". The more women respect themselves, the more valuable clothes and accessories they prefer.
