The contemporary labels that caught Drapers’ eye in the Agenda area of Pure.
AV by Adriana Voloshchuk
Adriana Voloshchuk trained and worked as an architect before moving into fashion and this background is visible in her spring 15 range, which features clean, structured shapes and geometric lines. The dresses, jumpers and coats come in eye-catching colours, from lime greens to dusky pinks, mixed with more muted greys. AV by Adriana Voloshchuk is also launching knitwear for spring 15, with jumpers wholesaling between £60 and £79.
Wholesale prices for the wider collection range from £23 for a knitted bandeau top to £140 for a mohair and neoprene coat.
