Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia 30th Anniversary
In anticipation of MBFW Sydney I couldn’t help myself to write a quick post on what went down in my Motherland during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia which took place in the capital city of Moscow. This year will definitely go down as a memorable one since it is the 30th anniversary of the Russian Fashion Week which makes it as old as me!!!
Iconic Russian designers like Slava Zaitsev and Alena Akhmadullina and the newest and hottest kids on the block like Tigran Avetisyan, Dima Neu and Andrey Artyomov presented their collections for a strict review of Russian fashionistas. Emerging street style stars like Olga Karput, Anka Tsitsishvili and Ilona Stolie showed their patriotism and support for Russian young designers by wearing their pieces as supposed to foreign designers.
The collections were quite diverse, form traditional Russian inspired outwear and fur to designs with heavy European influence and even children’s fashion.
