amazing stuff very intersting expressive and original
there are more possibilities of Andrew being 'inspired' by new russian designers than vice versa i find Krasnova's work quite original.
do we have any links from those designers websites scott?
i really want to contact them there is great potential,
thanks once more for bringing this in
Thanks for reminding me about that. I do have a link but unfortunately you may have to just grit and bear going through the collection listing as its all in Russian and I can't read it. The English translator doesn't seem to be working either.
Here's the link for the rest of Krasnova-
And here's a link for the listing-
Looking at the rest,its even more splendid that I thought.
I really like Krasnova's clothes!
i love NinaDonis' clothing. it's nice and so wearable. that's what i look for in clothing, that it's fashionable, different, and wearable. I can't say her work is so different, but most definitely attractive. I love it!
go to moscow, the "best city in the world" and meet the news russians there and see the dozens of mercedes, restaurants, parties. it is nice over there. of course people , to say 'americanly', "get shot every day" but it is a good city right now, not like 12 years 10 years ago.
how is it dark and sad overrall?
I would have to disagree about Russia being sad and dark....
it has always produced "expression and strength". Even under the "communist" regime, the artists produced their approved work during the day and had the secret apartment exhibits at night....
These are not only my words but a friend who lives in Moscow. Not really sure what its like. I hear things regarding the economic situation the American establishment companies filtering their way into the country, but I don't know to be truthful,that's just what he says to me. It was really just a generalisation. But I do think that perhaps,communism still has tremendous effects on everybody which may have been what he meant.
I'd love to visit Russia,actually! Like you said,the strength is incredible so far from not only what I've seen here but other things like photography.
Well, you are right. The American companies (and others from Europe) are filtering into the country...but they're also the ones providing the people with jobs....the situation has it's ups and downs. The economy is incredibly unstable and I don't think we'll be seeing any stability for the next 10 years or so....
Unfortunately Russia is a country which always changed due to revolution and rarely evolution. Let's see if they learned from their mistakes.
i adore moscow, i visited some years ago -perestroika- and still culture was a common thing among the people, it was not 'dark' on the contrary, it was full of life, tradition in art and expression.
Down main Moscow pedestrian roads i could see painters classes above our 'western' modern masters, i just hope westernised Moscow still keeps the same feeling on art and expressionism
really like some of nina donis.
seems Moscow Fashion Week is making waves, much more since AsFour and much talked about Benoit Missolinwere were guests of Honor

i like the mask idea (very ancient Greek theater inspired) but the clothes i'm not sure, no be honest i find the skirt detail quite ridiculous
thanks for posting these here nay-k
any pictures of Masha Tsigal? i'd love to see the scandal collection
Cool article,Lena! My friend got to hang out with NY designer Rachel Comey at Krasnova btw.
Not too keen on that skirt either. I did love Akhmadulina-its alot more street oriented than most there. They did t'shirts with images from the Kama Sutra and lots of quilting techniques. They also did some pieces with crocodile-style humps or horns(?) along the seams. Very cool.
thanks for posting n-kay
