Collection  A/W’2017 – 18 by Ksenia Seraya is performed in a collaboration with artist Anya Mokhova. The collection is inspired by the history of Arctic exploration and powers of the physical phenomena belonging to the territory. 
Ksenia refers to the clash of two cultures: the one brought by the Arctic explorers from West and the traditional one belonging to the tribes of North, exploring ways to merge strict elements of formal dress with forms, textures and patterns of the traditional costume and ornament of locals. In the art, artist Anya Mokhova looks further into the questions of temporality and space, referring one on hand to the archival evidence of explorers’ presence, on the other - to the processes linked to Arctic territories. Performed in contemporary industrial material, the objects serve as reminders of clear ice forms and human attempts of exploring it in a fight with the nature elements. Through wrapping the body parts as if ice melting from the touch of warm hands, shoulders and neck, the objects are an independent inquiry into the collection topic, yet its extension through the examination of new forms, changing after the collection silhouettes.

Tender March unites women-lead creative businesses to develop a limited series of ceramics, all sales from which will go towards support of the Sisters centre, which helps those with experiences of sexual violence. a limited series of porcelain plates is a result of collaboration between artist Anya Mokhova, ceramics studio Art Detox, lingerie brand Corpo Diem, Qari Qris jewellery and jewellery show room Saharok. The project aims to support women who are going through a rough period in their lives. 

The objects rethink visual side of classical sculptural draperies: contemporary lingerie outlines are embedded into porcelain. Through sensual textures and epheremal details, the plates for keeping small objects such as jewellery and other nice things serve as a reminder for loving and appreciating oneself at the same time sending a hint on feeling favorite lingerie on the skin.
