...It all began with a
love of beauty. Ludmila Kachur, trained as a musician,
used to produce musicals on the stage for children and beautiful costumes
had to be ready to hand. To create them, one had to make them oneself.
So from scraps of material, the costumes of fairy princes and princesses
Ludmila became more and more interested in designing.
There were the interesting details for a new dress, the cut of a blouse
for a special occasion or a friend's fur coat redesigned from her mother's
old fur coat.
|Step by step,
a passion became a serious creative job. About eight years
ago, her knowledge increased on coming into contact with furriers and experienced
specialists in the fur trade. In her new undertaking, friends and acquaintances
became her first clients.
...Her work with fur
led her to found a company. The company went through several
phases of development but decided to specialize in the production of exclusive
creations from fur. Regular customers eagerly wait for new designs and,
on visiting our showrooms, continue to be surprised by the innovative
fur coats and furry accessories for spring and summer wardrobes.
For several years now,
the company has received recognition in its field. V&L
participates regularly in shows and exhibitions such as "The Consumer's
Exhibition", "Fur and its Elaboration", "Furs of Russia",
and "Le Show" among many others. In 1999, V&L received the
Grand Prix in the class "Soft Gold" and was awarded the "Silver
Tunic" at "A Week of Russian Fashion.
...The work of Ludmila
Kachur has received acclaim in the field of fur design
as witnessed by many professional awards. She
received the diploma "For Original Work with Fur" (1996) and
the diploma "The Best Fur Collection",
awarded to the winner of The Fifth Week of Russian Fashion and presented
by Mrs N.B. Vinogradova, the president of "A Week of Russian Fashion".
|She also received a diploma
for "For a Participant in the All-Russian Competition of Designers
and Furriers" (1999). The creative unity of our company V&L is
the guarantee for our success.
