About Halenko Designs
The name ‘Halenko’ originally comes from my grandfather who was Ukrainian and moved over to England where he then married my grandmother.
Together they were my early influences into fashion as my grandfather would source a lot of his fabrics from flea markets or make things out of old things no one else wanted. My grandmother was more of a delicate sewer and she taught me about designs, patterns and even how to alter a pattern if she didn’t like it. She would sit for hours on end making clothes not only for herself but for others too and that was her happy place, that is what made her really happy.
As I was growing up my mother was a huge part of my influence to fashion as she would design her own clothes from quality fabric and then go out to events wearing them. Her passion didn’t stop when she had me it continued and I would be her little doll/mannequin that she would make clothes for that were different and never seen before. A lot of people would ask her where did she get that dress from and it made my mother proud to say that she had made it and what her inspiration was at the time. You could see how happy and delighted she was when talking about her designs that that influenced me massively.
I grew up in a world were making and designing clothes had become a second nature to me as I was constantly surrounded by family who enjoyed designing and creating clothes, but the most important part was you could see how truly happy they wee and that was passed down to me as they would teach me how to design and create my own clothes. When I’ve previously designed a collection in the past you can see how proud they are that I have kept that generation of sewing going from what my grandfather, grandmother and my mother had taught me going from strength to strength.
Now that I am older I want to carry on the name and the passion that my family taught me and that is why I have gone into bespoke clothing. Not only is it a passion for myself
