PRESS RELEASE NEW YORK, April 26, 2011 / PRNewswire / -- Designer Mascha Shumikina presents the debut of the Oblik Skirt, an original hybrid garment that dramatically blurs the line between the feminine skirt and the masculine trouser. A patented design inspired by the landscapes and poetry of the nomadic culture, it unites the essence of eastern conservatism with western freedom.
An innovative, hand-crafted design with a distinct silhouette of relaxed drape-constructed volume and body-conscious elements, the Oblik Skirt starts as trousers, runs down and unites to become a skirt. The unique structure and shape of the garment are more pronounced through the natural movements of the human body, gently unveiling and continually transforming with each step, evoking a sense of being simultaneously hidden and revealed. The Oblik Skirt Line is an ongoing artistic exploration with development focused on researching fabrics, new cuts and modifications. Full Version
