Lako Bukia is a unique label, made for women who want to express their individuality and stand out from the crowd, but also love timeless, high-quality art pieces.
Lako Bukia launched her luxury label shortly after graduating from London College of Fashion, and has since been shown on various international runways and numerous showrooms, such as London Fashion Week as various catwalks and showrooms in Paris, Berlin, and Kiev.
The brand focuses on extravagant shapes and also specializes in unique use of colors and fabrics, mainly created by digital printing. Fabrics are usually sourced from several different countries and sometimes even from several continents. In every collection, the brand uses prints derived from the designer’s own photographs, usually taken during her travels or while exploring her common surroundings.
From the S/S 2020 collection on, the brand doesn’t work with leather anymore and has become animal friendly.
