In his couture collection, the designer presented a symbiosis of Ukrainian ethnic codes and modern technologies, jewelry and aesthetics as well. The basis of the couture collection was 3D technologies and local techniques: silk volumetric flowers made from ecoplastic were inspired by traditional wedding boutonnieres, and their versions of gilded silver resemble the decor of icons, the balaclavas are a modern interpretation of hustka, an authentic Slavic headdress, and studded with spikelets a hoop is a reference to the fields of wheat adorning the Ukrainian landscape.

In order to highlight the accents and emphasize the idea of ​​the collection, the designer invited Nikolay Tolmachyov and Maria Kulikovskaya to the collaboration of Ukrainian artists. Nicholas created a provocative invitation in watercolor technique, and Maria presented a full-growth statue and six busts that were used as dummies. The sculptures shown at the presentation are not similar to the conventional women's bodies promoted by the fashion industry. This is a story about honesty, about overcoming stereotypes, about accepting yourself and respecting your body. “Maria’s ideas are very close to me, and it seemed important to me to use our presentation, including to draw attention to the themes of gender and perception of my body,” Ruslan comments.
