Collection sets "Women of my kindred" has been created when processing a source of creativity - a phenomenon of the embroidery of Podillya region. The basis of the collection were taken characteristic and distinctive features of the embroidery of Podillya, technique unique to this ethnographic region (black color, enriched with bright shades of yellow, magenta, coral, green, purple, natural linen flax different textures with abundant decoration and now disappearing embroidery of "pads" technique). When designing the collection "Women of my kindred," The aim was to maximize the wealth of folk art to convey the nineteenth century in the art of the XXI century, creating a new modern collection with new materials and processing capabilities.

In order to achieve these goals the embroidery of Podillya region (coarse black cotton thread with bright splashes of bright colors, flashing lights as the owner of such movements at the shirt) was taken as the foundation of the collection.
Black color was selected as the main color of the collection - a symbol of fertility and wealth of Podillya black soil type. Bright color accents, found its expression in the accessories and fasteners. Women's shirt was a baseline for the constructive set. The collection used natural materials: leather, cloth, flax different structures, burlap, gauze and organza and to achieve certain artistic effects. During the collection development characteristics of folk costume skirts, such as color, layering items of clothing, monumental elongated silhouette, and decoration were used.
