Ekaterina Gerasimova's collection is a collaboration of illustrative, symbolic imagery and their application to textiles. The collection range revolves around a multitude of layered surface textiles techniques such as print devore, felting, appliqué and embroidery, in traditional and digital variations, including some specialist fur crafts (sponsored by Saga Furs) – that are engineered into womenswear designs.

The creative collaboration between garment and print is a massive inspiration which she juxtaposes onto sophisticated and playfully elaborate garments. A major influence in all the areas she researches is Latin American parables and common lavish imagery (often seen in tattoos or religion) deconstructed and reconstructed with her own illustrations.
