    RFW was two weeks ago and I recieved a few pics from the event. I see alot of potential in these two in particular. Victoria Krasnova(Ukranian)and NinaDonis. No one talks much about such designers so I wanted to bring a bit more attention to them.

    NinaDonis

    Krasova like red, and Krasna means red in Russian. Interesting. her design is pretty futuristic though. like a cyber school girl.

    My friend in Moscow(who sent these to me) tells me she reminds him alot of Dries Van Noten because her approach is actually quite folkloric,really :unsure:

    Wow! :woot: Very intresting designers at Russian Fashion Week. I really see some potential. ;)

    NinaDonis has cool but wearable stuff. Victoria Krasnova, on the other had, definetly has some ethnic Russian there and a bit of Dries.

    Thanks for this Scott! :flower:

    Lena,same year Christian Wijnants won first prize,right? I can't remember the collection but I remember the name because I quite liked it. I'm happy it was brought to my attention once again because I have some feelings this is the one whose work will begin to really take off. Despite some references,I find it rather strong.

    I think the main thing in comparison to Dries about Krasnova's work is her ability to reinterpret Ethnic forms etc. rather than borrowing. Dries,of course, does that better than anyone.

    Russia is such a dark and sad country so its nice to see this kind of expression and strength coming from there. Kind of like Belgium in the way that it was mostly known for chocolates, diamonds and two artists, before fashion became a comodity of International culture. I see Russia as a country that might produce alot of interesting things in the future.

    Glad you all enjoyed ;)

    i agree on russian talent
    Russia has some amazing artists, people are in general cultured in Russia, art comes naturaly.

    i prefer Nina's work, Krasnova also reminds me an older central european collection of Andrew Gn, maybe three seasons ago ;)

    Fantastic photogs too!

    I can see the Gn references. I just hope they'll be able to adjust into their own style once they get into it a bit more.
