Margarita Kovnat, the founder of the London based couture studio, MarKov Couture, has spent over 30 years working in the fashion industry and has undertaken a variety of career paths including: couture tailoring, creative pattern cutting, embroidery and textile design. She is the founder and lead designer of the luxury scarf brand, Margarita Kovnat.
The debut collection, “Love, Rita”, was exhibited in February 2017 at the Pure London fashion show and received a warm, excited and an overall positive reaction from industry professionals. Margarita hopes to create beautiful, elegant scarves for women who want to surround themselves with romance.
Each scarf begins as an original drawing, with experimentation in colour and composition leading up to the finished design. The patterns are printed on natural silk satin, habotai, twill, and British merino wool, while the double-sided scarves also feature Mongolian wool. Every piece is hemmed by hand and beautifully packaged in England.
