Herstory was founded in 2015 to create high-quality clothing that emphasizes femininity and charisma while maintaining the line between exuberance and elegance.
It was during her studies in Bordeaux, France, that founder Katya Slunkova, decided to turn her childhood dream and passion for exquisite female silhouettes into a small project.
Katya started as a buyer and product developer. This became a very valuable experience and gave her an understanding of what was truly missing in the modern fashion industry. The industry needed clothing that was expressive, chic, beautiful, and feminine, all at once.
The name Herstory is a rebellion against the language we often attach to the past – history, or his/story. Our focus is on “her story”, where “she” is both the main character and the author.
Each individual capsule of Herstory has its own theme and concept, and every item in the collection has its own idea and name. One of the key themes of the last collections was music, including instruments, musical figures, styles, and forms. In another capsule, the clothing items were named after different first ladies of the USA and loosely modeled after each one’s unique style.
Herstory has been well received by the media and popular fashion bloggers and influencers. Now the brand is represented in the most prestigious boutiques of Ukraine, such as the Dnieper and Odessa in Kiev. The brand is continually expanding its reach to bring the Herstory philosophy to more women around the world.
