Several more from nightparty.ru Most of the Russian club-goers seem to be very fashion-forward, however I cannot say the same for the average person walking down the street. As a Ukrainian, I can definitely say that people in Ukrainian clubs are much less flashy and designer-clad than Moscovites.

just a tidbit...i don't believe the first girl in mirra's post is russian...
a.she's got a bag from h&m.. b.and those pants aren't something a russian girl would look at, methinks... c.converse shoes haven't really taken off in russian as they have everywhere else.

my guess is that she's polish. she's got a very polish face. cute and round-ish.


i'm hoping this thread grows. one reason is because last time i visited russia was when i was 13 (and on a regular basis before that)...so i'm hoping to see SOME change.

to those who argue that it's a post-soviet side effect, i'll say i'm not sure about that. i live here in canada, and even those girls who were born here dress like the photos in the thread..through association is my only guess...

Here are some photos from street-fashion.ru. I do love what some of them are wearing, but in general it appears as if a lot of them are just trying to look as crazy as possible, which is quite different from stylish or original.

People in Kiev usually think I'm from NY and am not Ukrainian..because I don't dress like it. It's fun..
Thanks for all the pictures..some nice looks.

Hi ladies (and maybe some gents),
I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia (I live in Toronto, Canada now) so I just wanted to add my two cents. I think majority of Russian women take great pride in their appearances. When I moved to Toronto 16 years ago I was SHOCKED to find out that you can leave your house in a wrinkled t-shirt, dirty jeans, dirty shoes, etc. and no one will think anything of it. I don't think you see many people do that in Russia. Even if you are going to take out the garbage, you make sure you look presentable, just in case you run into some one you know!
But living here (Toronto) has taken it's toll on me and there are some days that I can drive my son to school still dressed in my PJs! I have relatives and friends come visit me from Russia and they often comment on the way people dress in North America. It's not about the labels, it's about appearance in general.
My hairdresser just came back from a competition in Moscow and even though he was only there for six days, he said that the two things that amazed him the most were Russian subway system and how well women dress!
Anyhow, it was great reading all the comments in this thread (even though some of them are couple of years old).
Irene.

I've seen a girl yesterday, she comes from Romania, she had the same outfit as the one with green shirt in the post before...
same shoes, same shirt...
I've got a friend who comes from Georgia, she almost always have that kind of shirts, or sometimes it's oversized trousers just like this skirt... :p
I really like it, makes me think of elfs !!!
