“You Should Be Taking Notes : Russia Fashion Week Spring 2016”
We know and love New York Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, and London Fashion week. They’re known for being huge, extravagant, and the times when the big designers come out to play and show of their masterpiece. As much as we should absolutely focus on these events, we sometimes need to be reminded that there are smaller, still extremely relevant fashion weeks out there in other countries. In this mini-series, I’ll be introducing you to some designers to watch from Russia Fashion Week, Sao Paolo Fashion Week, and Kiev Fashion Week. Enjoy!
Established in 2001, Alena Akhmadullina is known for classic formal silhouettes. This season she brought us monochrome, pastel, and rich blue looks that will make you fall in love. The sea-inspired line is truly breathtaking.
Established in 2012, Dimaneu is known for urban-chic looks. This season’s line is full of feminine, modern looks. A little bit of sexy mixed with a little bit of structure.
Established in 1999, Pirosmani is known for claiming clothes should be pieces of art. This collection is dark, and definitely edgy, womens and menswear. If you’re wanting to stock up on sexy, neutral pieces, look to this line.
Established in 2012, Ria Keburia is known for standout, quirky styles. Think Jeremy Scott for Moschino Spring 2016 vibes. The collection brought womens and menswear with all sorts of shapes and structures. This super colorful, playful collection is perfect for those who love to have fun with fashion.
Established in 2011, ZDDZ is known for streetwear pieces. This season’s collection brought grungy-punk looks to the forefront. Minimal graphics and chains were the details in the collection, giving us a bit of a prison-vibe.
