Watch: Ulyana Sergeenko haute couture spring/summer 2017 show

Live from Paris

Tune in at 2:30am Singapore time on 26 January

For the uninitiated, the name Ulyana Sergeenko brings to mind the ultimate street style star; for she's often spotted draped in dramatical silhouttes with sleek fairytale curls framing her face. In other words: Her style points rack up to a grand total of 'haute couture'. While Sergeenko is in fact quite the style hit herself, the Kazakhstan-born Russian designer is first and foremost behind one of couture week's most anticipated shows. Translating the tales of the arcane Soviet through a medium that speaks the loudest to the fashion crowd, Sergeenko's allure lies in the unmistakable pomp and finesse in which she tells her story — transforming the good, bad and ugly in history into chapters of fantastical fashion.

Get your first peek of Sergeenko's couture creations as they stream down her Paris runway at 2:30am right here on Buro.
