Misonzhnikov developed Katerina, a collection of folding fan made with Vologda laces, mirror and a comb. To start, he visited the lace manufactory in Vologda and learned the traditional technique of lace making.
Lace pattern was based on an existing traditional element and combined with a minimalistic fan shape. By using thread of different thicknesses the gradient effect was achieved.
“My collection was called Katerina and dedicated to my granny, who lived in Vologda. When I was a little boy she used to tell me stories about her home there, a big Russian izba, and about her mum, who was always making laces” explains Yaroslav Misonzhnikov.
