Vladimir Karaleev was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria. He moved to Berlin at the age of 19 to study fashion at the University of Applied Sciences (HTW). In 2005 he founded his own fashion label and launched his conceptual debut collection “CUT 210”. Contemporary art has a strong influence on Karaleev. The creative handling of materials works in combination with the conceptual design. Karaleev goes against the traditional shapes and cuts and creates instead innovative silhouettes, that are strongly influenced by geometric structures. His close bond with the art scene is not only expressed through his conceptual approach but also through the presentation of his fashion.
