Anoushka Evdokimov is a fashion designer focused on textile and shape exploration through outerwear, knitwear and patterning to allow for
transformability in the garments while keeping sustainability in mind by using only upcycled materials. She is originally from Munich, Germany but spent a few years in Los Angeles and Paris, now based in NYC.
Ragged Robin aims to combine avant-garde comfort with sustainability, in garments that are highly adaptable to various, sometimes extreme environments, taking visual interpretation of manmade and natural shapes and textures into
creative interpretations through Fashion.
The visual mission is to give the customer a range of uniform pieces that are transformable, to be wearable for a wide variety of occasions and to maximize personal expression in how garments can be worn.
The Collection focuses on the dissociation from nature we tend to have in adulthood.
We enter sort of human bubble, after childhood where we often forget the natural world around us and the negative impact we have on it on a daily basis.
Children and Elders tend be more in touch with their natural surroundings, having less of an impact. Their dress styles are one component of inspiration for this
collection, others are that of shapes and textures found in both manmade and natural shapes and textures. The research concept of Thermoregulation in the human organism is also a reference point through the use of material padding and negative space in the garments, as well as the concept of a highly modular and custimizable personal uniform.
The garments themselves are made out of entirely deadstock materials and transformable to allow for a wider range of wearability to curb consumerism and reflect upon personal uniform.
The name Ragged Robin is derived from the name of a weed flower that has bright, ragged petals and is said to stand out of decaying fauna like a light.
