FINCH brand is being run by a family - Kateryna Biakova and Maksym Holub.
FINCH is famous for the capsule series "Ukrainian Fashion Geek", registered as a separate trademark in collaboration with the Ukrainian Fashion Week — these products are part of the dialogue and same time an affordable instrument promoting fashion and domestic products in Ukraine.

FINCH key features are the avant-garde art prints, puffy shapes, multilayered and neat silhouettes. Over the past 3 collections we've been into cross-disciplinary collaborations. Along with the original ethnic costumes, modern arcitecture, auteur cinema and avant-garde music, we are very much inspired by Asia and the culture of wabi-sabi.
Though the unique and eye-catching image is very important for us, practicality and convenience is still at 1st place.

At the end of March 2015 we presented our first ready-to-wear collection during the Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days. Since 2018 FINCH is the resident of Ukrainian fashion week, showing two collections plus one or two capsules anually.

Press summary:
FINCH has 3 Ukrainian covers in 2019: PINK magazine
featured at Vogue UA, L'Officiel Ukraine, PINK, VOGUE Italia, L'Officiel Hommes Ukraine, Vogue RU, the Huffington Post USA, NOWFASHION, bestin.ua, FW-Daily, (former) STYLE.COM etc.

in 2015 FINCH has been marked as best young brand by VOGUE Ukraine (MBKFD prize), won the contest for young designers in St. Petersburg (Russia) and as a finalist of TSUM UA contest (2016) got corner in the most promising department store of Ukraine, TSUM Kiev.

Since 2017 FINCH collaborates with the swiss artist Marianne Hollenstein and the Swiss Embassy of Ukraine, creating capsules and big collections with her artworks and promoting the artist to the ukrainians. This is the first example of fashion and art collaboration in Ukraine, when the artist is being known and invited to exhibit personally because of the collection revealed with the arts. The signature art in used now for an Instagram & Facebook filter (AR).

The Ukraine’s first wearable technology made in collaboration with another young Ukrainian label was revealed on the catwalk with FINCH spring-summer 2016 collection in autumn 2015. TechPack - a backpack with the display, automatic inner illumination and mobile device charger. Though the product has never been widely sold due to its mass production peculiarities, we keep thinking of its pro and upgraded version release in the future.

We provide early orders for our collections - the top looks available for pre-order right after the show, and can be manufactured using specific measurements.
The range of our merchandise for each offline store around the globe varies depending on the marketing and sales analytic. Due to this specificity there’s no store with full FINCH assortment. The widest range of our clothes in Ukraine presented in our showroom in the centre of Kyiv.

If you’re a stockist representative or wholesale buyer you may request the information for further collaboration, lookbook and/or line sheet.
