DZHUS is a conceptual womenswear brand launched in 2010 by Ukrainian designer Irina Dzhus.
Avant-garde yet utilitarian, DZHUS’ visual identity derives from innovative structural solutions. The brand’s design concepts are based on interaction and transformation of construction modules, aimed to create new aesthetics of the form – alternative and virtually archetypical at the same time, categorical but variable.
Irina Dzhus generates innovative cut systems, using her extraordinary ability of a thorough insight into the complex structure of the ambient and a deep understanding of its architectonic potential. Comprehending metaphysics of the form and its antipode, volumes and silhouettes, surfaces and voids, contours and textures, the designer explores the possibilities of interaction of the surrounding space’s constitutive parts, from which her experimental constructions derive.
In 2015, DZHUS was short-listed for the International Woolmark Prize.
DZHUS’ lines have been presented during Paris Fashion Week, International Fashion Showcase (London) and Ukrainian Fashion Week.
DZHUS vegetarian-friendly clothing is stocked at concept stores of Europe, USA, Asia, Middle East and Australia and sold online worldwide.
A DZHUS woman is an intelligent nonconformist in search of the perfect embodiment for her unique inner world.
