Mavka dress is made of motifs, which are joined as you go. A hexagon motif and its variations are used in this design to shape the garment without breaking the spectacular geometric pattern.
The name Mavka references a forest nymph in the Ukrainian language.
The clear lines, a gradually expanding silhouette and a flared skirt make this dress both playful, feminine and practical.
