Mara Dolinskaia was a ballet dancer at the Mariinsky Opera and Ballet Theatre in St. Petersburg and is the grandmother of the designer Katya, who was inspired by her grandmother to honour the stars of classical dance of the 1920’s. In a continuous movement performed by Mara, Katya portrays scenic characteristics, the extravagant wardrobe of that time and the roses of the ball scene in “The Queen of Spades” by Tchaikovsky, among other elements that transport us to a universe full of life, colour and creativity. Collection awarded with an honorable mention by the German Design Award 2019.
